Here's a good "rarest of the rare"...

I just picked this up through a private sale. There were only 10 made! It's a LeMond "Z" mountain bike, Santana-made, from Record OR tubeset. I'd love to hear back from someone else who has one.

Another "rarest of the rare"...
A 27.0 titanium seatpost that has setback. I'm trying to get one, but can't find anything anywhere.

Can't think of any layback/setback posts in 27.0 that were actually made in Ti.

The only layback posts I've found in 27.0 are older Easton CT2 carbon posts or M900/M910 XTR posts (which are also Easton - Al not carbon though)

Not made in 27.0 though....well at least not anymore.

I was also looking a while back and came up with nothing, so if there is anything I'd also like to know :)

I just posted the same request for a post on the Serotta forum and they clued me in to a couple.

American Classic used to make an MTB Ti post in 27.0mm

Also, Bold Precision can make a custom one, I think. I just e-mail him. I'll let you know how it works out.

I love that bike. Didn't Bob Roll used to ride one when he rode for 'Z' off road or something similarly odd?

From the the only pictures I found of those none were layback though.

Can I join in? Can anyone point me to another Fisher RS1 Pro?

I reckon mine in the condition it's in is rare.

I saw one on the bay couple of months back but it was totally bastardised.

Would love to make contact with another owner.

I would like a Funk. The big old pink one with the elevated chainstays.
