Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Bike thief is gonna get it... SF alert!

My buddy Justin's (TNCLR's) De Rosa has been stolen from his storage space in SF. Thief is to be destroyed!!!!!! PLEASE keep an eye out and help recover. This bike does NOT belong in the hands of a thief, especially if you know Justin!

here is the bike:
http://velospace.org/node/150

they also stole two of his bass guitars which i do not have a description for yet.

Condolences, Justin. My friend Maribel, who I believe knows you, told me about this before I saw the BF posting. Word is spreading quickly and broadly enough, I hope, to serve that doosh his just desserts. We'll keep eyes out in PDX.

yeah that's like a thousand dollar pbass too (the '78), and that bike is so sexy.
it's not like the thief can actually ride the bike without someone recognizing it, keep an eye out on ebay for both items.

Thanks mrwhite, gnarboots, and everyone else.

Yes, the bass theft really stings. The black 78 p-bass was the REPLACEMENT I picked up when my band Film School had all our **** stolen in Philly earlier this year. And the other one was a childhood friends I was borrowing.

Oh, and for anyone in the SF area that wants to help out. I made a flyer to be posted in bike shops, cafes, whatever. Any help in spreading the word is appreciated beyond belief. Thank you!

Good thing is, you got TiP on your side, so the thief is in more trouble than you are I'd give the bike back double quick before she sets off for SF...

That's so, so, so fu(king wrong. Jacking a De Rosa is just fu(king evil. I'll keep my eyes open and show the pics to all the cats I ride with so they can keep a look out as well. If you all catch the POS that took it, post his address. I'm sure all of the peeps in the bay area would love to fu(k with him/her for YEARS to come.

I work with troubled youth in SF. I just printed pics of your bike to show to the kids I service. My kids can find ANYTHING. I'll post some up in the Sunset and the park as well.

I am working on a few other things - here and at other sites - to keep the word at a level of high vis, Justin.


Portland and Seattle - can anyone post up on a local site there? Seattle has point83 going still, right?

No happy ending yet. Everytime my phone rings I'm hoping it's a friend in SF with good news. Thank you everyone for helping to spread the word and offering assistance. I really appreciate it. I'm gonna try and go back to SF this weekend to get a police report and remove my stuff from the ****ty storage space. If the bike is found, it will NEVER be left alone again. I don't need this kind of stress. Haha.

Fingers crossed for some good news.

-Justin
