General Info
Model Year: 1995
Riding Type: Trail / All-Mountain
Additional Info: This bike has been on my want list since I was 14 years old. I don’t remember specifically who I saw reading it in the magazines but the moment I saw the polished aluminium frame I knew I had to have it. 24 years later, I saw the frame for sale on retro bike in great condition so I made the purchase. I sourced some Rock Shox Judy’s from the same website that we’re in need of new paint and decals. The rest of the parts I had from a previous build. I think it turned out pretty well.

I still have my 95 RTS-3. It has been upgraded with discs, RS Judy SL long travel. I have not needed to replace the bike, and she is still going strong (stronger than me anyway).

The only bike I wanted more was the LTS they sold at the same time! Beautiful build, inspires bad ideas!

It's amazing how fashions change. Force and sensor were back on a high pivot in 2014 as well.

I have a few pairs of Shimano 737's around. Some have been ridden thousands of miles and still function perfectly despite being smashed and having deep gouges all over them. Shimano at its best.
