Rarest bike you've owned?
The Rainbow Pig.
Actually a 1998 (probably) Norco Bomber in bright orange. Horst Link suspension, Risse Racing shock and a design that meant the seatstay cup split after a couple of 1000miles. They gave me a new one for free, but the shock blew & was irreparable.
Bought 2nd hand from a shop in Whistler before everyone had heard of the place, 1999.
I think the bike was the only one which made it to the UK, it was before Norco had an importer here.Posted 5 years agoLeeWSubscriber
I’m sure they’re not rare but I’ve never seen another RC200 out on the trails. I had a Merlin XLM for a couple of years, I was told by the importer there was less than 20 in the country – not sure how true that is though.
Got a Tranny now, again I’ve never seen another one out on the trails.Posted 5 years agoscaredypantsSubscriber
When I was a kid we lived up the road from a guy called Jack Taylor who made frames with his brothers, including lots of weird tandem-shaped objects. My dad knew him fairly well
Still got a frame (road/tourer) that was originally my dad’s – I crashed it properly when I was 20 and they rebuilt it for me so “only” really about 25 yrs old. My mate’s been SSing it to work lately after it had collected dust in my garage for ages (I am slightly worried it’ll fold & kill him)
Not that rare, but I doubt there’s all that many still around and being riddenPosted 5 years agoskiMember

I’ve got an original geared Ti Inbred which I’ve owned from new – I believe there where only 52 geared and 52 singlespeed frames made. Not sure how many are still on the trails.
Wow, only 52 geared, that was a small run for such ‘I so wanted one’ bike.
Used to have a geared and SS, 853 inbred, both of which were ltd to a run 100 of each, neither of which were signed by Brant, which I think makes them rarer still 😉Posted 5 years ago
