Marvelous job and the gear you chosen goes well with it. Really like Scott bikes around that period.

Thank You for opinions :)

Now Evo is having new pedals - I removed M737's (as I wrote before they were not a part of this project) and instal black Ritcheys

Now I can tell it's 100% non-shimano build :)

Pro Evo is having shorter rear triangle to Boulder for example, so it's uphilling a little bit easier ;)

Awesome project and it really makes a great change to see some lovely Suntour instead of the usual
Shimano 8) ..

I really love this bike! Those top pull Suntour front mechs aren't easy to find, right? While I love those Suntour brakes, especially the Pedersen SE rear one, may I suggest you look for some original Scott Pedersen versions instead? Scott equipped some of their bikes with these brakes, that would suit yours definitely well!

Thanks
I had no problem with front mech as my friend had it in his bike - I just swap with him for XTR M901 (so it wasn't cheap for me, but it was one of last missing pieces to this build)
About brakes - Scott/Pedersen brakes I've seen in '92 Super Evolution as an oryginal equipment, so I decide to put them to mine '91 Super Evo (I like painting sheme much more than '92, that's why I built that one)

In here I just want to have nearly full XC Pro gruppo...
