----Original listing below---

This listing includes a new old stock vintage XTR gruppo, with many parts still in box, see parts list at end and read entire listing for details and condition.

Ringlé, Syncros, and SRP parts are also new old stock, with the exception of Twister skewers.

The stainless steel frame is used and the fork was professionally reconditioned, see below for details.

Includes original brochure, price list, and promotional literature, though the documents are old with some wrinkles, and coming apart at the binding.

This bike-- without the expensive Ringlé and SRP parts -- sold new for $3600; the frame alone was $1300 (see pic of price list).

I am an experienced bicycle seller. I'd like to sell this all together before July, but I will part out if the bike has not sold by then.

Full parts list with condition in table below, at end of this listing.

This was my dream project bike when I was younger, then I moved to a new city, and everything sat in storage. I am offering it as a complete build kit before trying to part out. New Old Stock parts were never used but may show some fading and minor shop wear.

The frame is closest to a Medium, or 16.5" center-to-center seat tube, 17.625" center-to-top (measured by hand). I am 6 feet tall with a 32-inch inseam and got the bike to fit me. I think I am near the upper height limit for a rider. It is between a M and a M/L in Rhygin's Mountain Sizing -- it could actually be an exact M, but SS frames were custom sized at no extra charge. I will include the brochure with sizing and promotional literature for the bike.

A Boston builder, no longer in business, that offered a full line of high-end bikes in the 1990s, including models with expensive Metax stainless steel frames. Made in USA.

All of the iconic gray M950/M951/M952 XTR parts are new, with many still in the box. The cassette is not XTR, it is XT 11-32 M750, also new. The cranks and bottom bracket are installed but I'll also send the original boxes. See full parts list below.

It took me years to acquire a set of red-anodized Ringlé parts, all new and unused, except for the skewers: Slamma Jamma headset, Super Duper Bubba hubs, Moby Deuce seatpost, Zooka stem, H20 cage, Twister titanium skewers. The H20 cage includes the angle bracket and mounting washers. Note that the color of the hubs is not as deep red as most of the rest of the parts. These were stored inside and never ridden, but metal parts anodized in different lots are not always the exact same color. The Twister skewers are used, unlike the other parts, and have some scratches.

There are also red-anodized SRP parts, or "lightening" kits with titanium bolts: M15 crank bolts, ARD021 derailleur bolts, LR11 cassette lockring, seatpost collar (silver with etched white SRP).

New Old Stock, never used, hand-built by Bicycle Therapy in Philadelphia on Ringlé Super Duper Bubba red-anodized hubs and Mavic m719 rims. The Bicycle Therapy decal matches the red-anodized parts.

Other parts
Also brand new and very collectible. Saddle is San Marco Concor Light; bars are Syncros hardcore, as originally on the Rhygin Juke SS Team.

Juke SS Metax Frame
Frame is straight and structurally intact, free of dents, dings, and cracks. There are cosmetic imperfections in the satin finish: some duller spots, some fine scratches -- see the photos. There was electrical tape wrapped around the chain stay to protect it. I removed the tape but it left residue. You can still see the spiral wrap pattern if you look closely at the photos. Possibly these imperfections could be polished out with 3M pads, or by using a rotating polishing tool with the appropriate attachments, but I do not know. The frame could be bead-blasted again, even polished to a mirror finish (a $75 option originally, see price list). (My plan when I picked up the frame was to use a stencil to mirror-polish the Rhygin logos into the head tube and down tube against the satin finish.) I have seen several of these frames cracked at the head tube welds, but this frame is not cracked and there is a gusset at the head tube for reinforcement.

Decals are in poor to fair condition, wrinkled and peeling, see pictures. I left the Metax and Rhygin decals on the frame only for historical reasons.

Not included
No chain included; no pedals included. If interested, I have some brand-new in-box M737 SPD pedals and the SRP lock nut lightening kit for the pedals. (I was originally planning to have the lock nuts anodized red to match the other accent parts.) I am selling the pedals and lock nuts separately from the bike but the bike buyer will have priority.


I have tried to describe the bike thoroughly, but check the pictures and table below, and contact me with any questions.
I'd trade or partially trade for a travel bike/frame with S&S couplers that fits into an airline-compliant case, preferably with rear disk tabs.
I don't want to have to sell every single part individually, but might sell the frame/fork/Ringlé parts/XTR gruppo all as separate lots.
