Defo XC4's and as above, don't know much about Scott frames, but it sounds like it may have been a half descent one.

No idea about the brakes, but for some reason I really liked Scott bikes BITD. If it's supposed to be mid-90's, it's a curious thing. To my knowledge the higher-end Scotts all had "Racing" in the name somewhere.
So if it were a team bike, it would have been labelled "Scott Racing Team USA stage 1" or something like that.

Some pictures of the frame would be nice though.

Edit : here's a Scott Comp Racing, for example.

here is pics of the frame - found some foreign bikes which look the same but labelled as Yecora. Additional info is it is aluminium, and mega light! Disc brake mount on the rear too. Does anybody have anymore info on it or original RRP idea?

It has some nakered rebas on it too which is a shame they're nt standard. Surprised not to have seen more of these, it's insanely light, bit compact for me though
