    Would it have to be

    a pretty high end bike to be considered "grand theft"?

    What's the defining threshold?

    California Penal Code says $950, although the threshold is lower for farm animals and produce for some reason). Anyway, a $950 bike isn't high end but surely attractive enough to a thief.
