Same Scott but now loved. :)

A kickstand on a mountain bike is so sad. Reminds me of the day I rescued my Ritchey.

Hi,

this is my '92 Sawtooth. At the moment it's fitted with some parts out of the bin but since I'm planning to turn this into my daily commuter, I'll replace the butterscotch Psychos with some black ZMax, new grips and a Ritchey saddle - once i get out the stuck seatpost :evil: hopefully today.

I've replaced the 26" wheels with a 700C Mavic set I had, MA40s on Mavic hubs.

The brakes are MAFAC Racer centre-pulls, and work quite well with the Dia-Compe levers.

Not really getting on with the singlespeed thing though (I live in the country and it's hilly, as opposed to a flat city-centre) so aiming to go back to gears. Might put drops on it.

My Columbus Max pro-racing in travel outfit in Iran


Did you remove the sticker 'Made in the USA' before entering Iran? :wink: :lol:


That looks like it was back in the day when the Americans were still giving cash, arms and ahem advisors to Iran so yo should have been safe

Interestingly most of the better scotts seem to be mostly stateside or Europe. In the U.K. I always felt we got the walmart/tesco version?

Love the touring version

there was a big marketing push in 90/91/92/
my mates shop had them in those days he had the full range , but mostly sawtooth's and windrivers ,tho he had super americas and super evo's
i loved them
he had loads of other makes in there too ,look ,mbk ,a-stars, fisher, etc
i think there was a big shake up in the distributers 93/ 94 ish

so maybe thats why they went away till the late 90's or seemed to

any more pics foxychick ?
