    Stolen giant tcr advanced sl (black) - ny metro area

    Mod, if this isn't where this goes please move it to where it does.

    Hey guys. I was lurking craigslist when I happened upon a black 2012 Giant TCR Advanced with ISP, Dura Ace 7900, and Zipp 404s. The price was $1700 which was pretty suspect considering what this bike is worth. I then found an ebay listing for the same bike (even the same pictures) located in Birmingham, AL which got really sketchy. I talked to the guy via email and he didn't seem to know much about bikes in general, just really wanted to sell it. Call me crazy but I think this was stolen.

    If you had a Giant TCR Advanced in black stolen from you in or near the NY metro area this might be your thief.

    You need to get a job with Scotland Yard. Your analysis makes sense.

    Thanks, if my pro roadie career doesn't take off I was thinking about getting into the PI business.

    Ask this guy for the serial numbers. At 1700 waaaay to cheap. Additionally, cops will not do a whole lot here in NYC related to internet-based crimes - unless there is a cycling cop who might facilitate a buy & bust.

    Wow, I knew it would eventually happen; Someone found a sketchy ad on Craigslist!

    Probably W Bush's fault -- call the press!

    Probably the only thing stolen are the images. Running some type of scam.

    The 2012 TCRs were the first year to have internal cable routing and ride sense. This bike has neither.

    If you call he'll say he's out of town with the bike but you can pay for it and he'll have it delivered.
