It was unexpectedly found :)


Super Evolutions are quite rare, but this colour is even rarer I think than '92 red/grey. It's a version from 1991 - all cables are routing in right side ot top tube (same as in my 91 Pro Evo)

...

One guy keep it in his garage from new, but not riding very often All parts are in preety nice condition!

I bought a whole bike, but I split it for parts Now all will be cleaned polished and mounted again I'm also planning some little changes to oryginal specyfication

Frame is 18" (same size as my cro-moly Pro Evolution) and weight 2557grams - it's about 150grams more as Pro Evo!

Scott bikes of the early 90s had cool color combinations. Lovely frame !

Will follow this as much as I did with your red evolution build. :)

Montana was in collection quite long - from 1990 as I remember to 2005 In early '90 it has some bright acid colours But it's having different geometry to Boulders (a bit more lazy) so I'll stay with Boulders ;)

And about Evo - mechs are ready!
Evo will have XT M735 rear mech,but in opposition to oryg. specs it'll be short cage version Front mech will be also XT M736 (M651 in every 91 Evos I saw)
