    Van Dessel Stolen!

    One of my friend/team mates bikes was stolen today. It is pretty unique so please keep an eye out.

    please help and pass on to any email lists you can think of.

    My very sexy road bike was stolen from in front of the ARC today sometime
    between 12:15-12:50. i went to weight lift and came back to find only a cut
    lock. (someone was prowling with BIG cutters).

    This is a very RARE bike - i've never seen another of it in northern
    california

    it is a 50cm van dessel Rivet - mostly white and black with some red on the
    front fork and rear triangle.
    this is a link to what the current version looks like (mine doesn't have the
    little red stripes on the downtube, toptube and seat tube)
    http://www.vandesselsports.com/image...main_large.jpg and i also
    attached a photo from during a race.

    it has red hoods with white novara bar tape
    SRAM force shifters, front and rear derailleur
    Shimano dura-ace crank and brakes
    look keo black pedals
    white specialized toupe saddle
    Ritchey carbon WCS seat post

    Wheels:
    Rear mavic 32 spoke open pro with power tap SL hub
    Front 32 spoke with dura ace hub
    both have continential gatorskin tires

    That SUCKS! I'll keep an eye out.

    On a side note... I would never leave a bike with so much bling locked outdoors... anywhere.

    I've never seen a Van Dessel in person so it would definitely catch my eye.

    Yeah! Don't be mistaken. The Van Dessel is the performer.
