Yeah I know, the area really isnt much better, just the police don't show for much of it, therefore their report count is lower, and looks like it's lower crime. When my car got broken into, they actually tried as hard as they could to not file the report....actually it never got filed...same thing for when some jackarse broke into my apartment, and was trying to steal from one of the bedrooms..well he managed to knock me over and run off..basically they ask you if you know them personally and if the answer was no, tehy just try to brush you off.
I've been in worse neighborhoods though, fortunately there are no major gang wars in this area....once was enough.
Either way, I hope this guy gets caught...all the bike shops in the area should already know about the bike by now, even the flea market guys know about it already...one of them stopped me today and told me to be sure my bike was locked down well because this "super trick SC got ripped off"....so I know it's going to be hard to sell it, so I'm also looking around for components to show up on EBay...that fork, I can't describe it well, but it looks extremely overbuilt, even for DH, and it was very distinct...very little painted metal on that fork at all, kind of abnormal with how you can even find Marz Shivers that have paint all the way up them.
