Bought my girlfriend a bike to try the fine art of MTB.
Scott Tigua '96, nothing fancy, completely original though.
I really like the clean look.
The saddle is replaced for the original one.

Original tyres too!

That was a lovely paint job on that, a great colour.
Scott were one of the first to do proper frames for women, kudos to them!

Yes, the paintjob is really a nice metall.
Didn't know the tires are original, that states my idea that this bike is used very little.

Indeed. It's a very good example there. The tyres looking that new mean it really hasn't seen many miles.

The geometry looks a little odd, as it's tailored for the girlies.
