I finally found some Paragon rings in 60T & 56T along with bash guards used by Myles Rockwell & Jimmy Deaton during the early 90s DH hay day for Yeti. Rockwell typically used a 56T ring and won with that configuration on an 93' ARC-DH paired with Grafton cranks. He did well in the U.S.& EU DH racing circuit, including Kaprun, but my fondest memories are of the Mammoth Mountain Kamikaze DH. He clocked speeds of 60+MPH at the Reebok Eliminator.

These are practically new and show minimal teeth wear. No plans at the moment for a build as I only have a 94' AS. I may seek out a 93' DH though based on the find.

Here we go. A pair of silver Grafton JoyStix, M900 rings and black bolts. These rings won’t allow for a FD but a pretty cool setup.

Thanks Jeroen! I need to run down some M900 spacers and inner ring fixing bolts but it close. BTW, did you get your Carambas? I forget to follow up with the holidays and everything. Cheers! Jason
