    97 RS Judy DH. Are the upper tubes aluminum or steel?

    97 or 98. The one with the red one piece red magnesium lower (also single crown).

    Teflon-Impregnated Easton EA70 Aluminium. Except for the Judy C model, none of the Judy's got chromoly stanchions until oh, 1998 or 1999, and then it was just the XC that got them also. Eventually when they expanded the line and dropped the indy's as the lowest end version, pretty much all the Judy's went to CrMo uppers. The last of the "good" judy models was the 2001 Judy Race, which had the new lower casting, the Hydrocoil internals with the homer valve, easton uppers, easton steerer, new forged and hollow crown, 63 or 80mm travel, and about 3.5 pounds, oh and a nice candy apple red color.

    In 1997, the Judy DH did get CR-MO steel stanchions with a bolt on crown. It was more of a strength type measure rather than a cost saving one.
