Just been given this bike, a Scott Motion Solution??
It has ;
Alivio F-mech, chainset, cantis, hubs.
STX bronze R-mech.
Gripshift 300 shifters.
Alesa rims.
Cro-mo forks, non butted tubing.

Looks like it's hardly been ridden, original everything else including H&S sticker.

Tyres were shot, saddle was not original, pedals were not original.
It's nothing really special, I guess around '94.

Here's a pic anyway, we all like a pic:

I remember Scott being one of the brands my chums thought were ace back around 89-92 so am always suprised there's not more of 'em on here. That one looks tidy.

The frame us a 16 I think, with the knowledgable folk in here saying it has shorter tt and changed geometry it may suit the wife, if I get her to try off road.

I changed the pedals for some v8's and have some orange wildgrippers to go on it.

I'll do a spec sheet soon.
It's 12kg as pictured.
