Bikes Stolen at Giro di San Francisco

Two bikes belonging to Ted Huang and Christine Thorburn were stolen from the Webcor cycling team after Monday's race. I'm posting a description of the bikes in case anyone in the SF area hears about someone trying to sell them.
51cm Dean titanium frame w/ Reynolds Peloton fork and 10-speed Dura Ace gruppo. Ritchey bar/stem/carbon, seatpost w/ one-of-a-kind red/white/blue Fizik Aliante (carbon rails), Bontrager X-Lite wheels with Vredestein tires

53cm Lemond Tete de Course frame w/ Bontrager XXX fork and Dura Ace 9-speed w/ 10-speed cranks. Bontrager bar/stem/seatpost, green decals w/ white Lemond lettering. "Webcor" clear coated on top tube in green.
The Tete de Course is a custom paint job that was only done for the Webcor team bikes. Christine is pretty bummed because that was the bike she used in the Olympics and it meant alot to her (besides the fact that it was custom made and had 10-speed).

If anyone hears about these bikes, please send me an e-mail and I will pass the information along to Ted.

Thanks,

Steve

They were in Ted's car and the robbers broke the car windows. There were several other cars in the area that also were broken into.
