Well, the date is a bit guessed with the most obvious hint the brakes on the chainstays. This would rule out 1990 I would think, but I can't find it in the 89 catalogue either. The catalogue is German though, I don't know if the model names (and logos) were different with the States versions? Maybe 88 is an option too. More pics this week!

PS: the Biopace ring works perfect in singlespeed, I was only wondering if it is still a singlespeed then.....

I'm having all catalogues from 1989 to present, and I didn't find this frame...

It's having old style logotype (I think - I'll check it in better pics) - this logotype was available only to 1990
Also 1990 was the first year when Scott signature was in top tube

But You're right about Ubrake - in 1990 it shouldn't be mounted in chainstays...

This one is similar to mine (but with shiny spokes!). Posted as a 1990 on Flickr

Here some pics of another, labelled as 1989:

Considering the MT-60 components, including the MT-61 U-brake, it actually should be from 1988.

1988 Scott Boulder....no longer mine but I like to look at the pics. It was a beaut:

Image

Gold ano wide bars, heavily swept-and Deore thumbies but black instead of aluminum finish:

Image
Image

Gold/pewter ano Suzue high flange hubs, laced to Weinmann concave rims-this had a very well-though out and uncommonly detailed build, right from Scott:

Image

Spare spoke/chainstay protector and fork with rack bosses....handy.

Image

Wish I could have kept it!!!!!!!!!
