Hi all,thought I would show the progress so far with my Scott.Im rather low on funds so Im building with stuff Ive picked up here for a good price.Please excuse the big seat,but I have been left with a back injury which makes riding somewhat painful but Im not giving up my hobby until I cant get on the bike.More progress to follow soon.

Eric :D

Great to see this up and running (almost). Cracking frame in great colours.

Not a huge fan of risers and bar ends though :wink:

Probably essential with the back problem the OP mentioned though.

Nice looking bike, I'm always surprised at the lack of Scotts on here.

Thanks everyone.Yes its not really the done thing with bar ends on risers,but the change of arm position to a higher height is great for 30 seconds every 5 mins or so.Without it becomes more painful :(

But once were are heading down hill at full speed the pain is less noticeable as the adrenalin kicks in.I think thats why I refuse to stop riding :D

Were all cabled up now,mechs to sort next. :D

Riser/bar end comment wasn't a criticism, fair play for still getting out there and doing what love! Bike looks good, Scott's are underrepresented on retrobike for some reason.
