    Alright, which one of you guys took it?

    From the Shimano-europe web page:
    During the current running test-camp for the new XTR, that is taking place in Kaprun Austria on the track of the 2002 MTB Worldchampionships, one of the 6 prototype test-bikes was stolen. The bike has a white frame just with an XTR logo and is equipped with a full 2003 model XTR-set. As you can imagine this hand-prepared prototype is really expensive .................... but on the other side we don't expect the thief to become very happy with it, as the bike is very easily recognisable and the prototype components are made for functional testing, but not for a long-time durability.

    Could have been stolen by some rival to examine the new technology if there is.

    Nevertheless, if I were the thief, I will steal it to keep it, not to ride it, but just as a piece of art.

    Paint?

    Yeah, it was me. I flew over to Austria specifically to take it and bring it back for some REAL testing!

    I've got it in my garage. That paint sure looks pretty... oh wait, that says h-u-f-f-y, not x-t-r.

    I have solved this mystery. It was definitely one of the above posters. As usual, I suspect...everyone.
