What is the rarest component you own? Poss bike p*rn content.
Rare but not necesarily any good.
Scott High Octane World Cup DH frame from 1998. So rare that the only thing about it I have found online re the adverts posted on here & pinkbike by the chap I bought it from! I’ll get round to a period style rebuild at some point. Would love to find the huge sofa saddle for it….

That Hotta looks great, looks like a Campy groupset?
Thanks – it usually gets slated on here! DA 9sp – I’m guessing it’s the non-STI brake levers which made you think Campag, which leads onto the part on there which was very rare when the bike was new. It has DA 9sp downtube gear levers mounted to a bracket on the aero bars – built in early ’97 with some of the first 9sp stuff (of any variety) in the country, but I had to personally import the gear levers (bought from the late great Sheldon Brown’s shop) as Madison weren’t bringing them in, so I suspect they were the first set in the country. Still not exactly commonplace I’m sure.Posted 4 years agotwohatsMember
I used have a Chris King/WTB Grease Guard headset that I got for free. I sold it roughly ten years ago for £50, which was a lot for a rough looking headset!
It reappeared on Ebay a year or so ago and fetched £170!!!!
Back in the late 90’s, the bike shop I worked in had boxes of Grafton cranks and brakes that they couldn’t give away due to the V brake/disc brake revolution, so we binned them!!! Crazy to think how much they’d be worth now!?Posted 4 years agoratherbeintobagoSubscriber
I did have a Shimano Altus compact triple (38t big ring) until recently – should be rare as they were apparently recalled in 1995 due to a manufacturing fault that meant they might snap…
I have a horrible sinking feeling there is still one on my mum’s Trek hybrid.Posted 4 years ago
