    STOLEN!!! Broke in to my building FOUND!!!

    It's at dog box bikes right now. haven't seen it, apparently different wheels and possibly other stuff. I'm super lucky. Thanks to lilly for spotting it.

    a group followed the guy, asked him about the bike in some way, he got spooked, dropped the bike and ran. preliminary report. huge thanks!

    my guerciotti, red white blue fade, approx 58. Spidel cranks, phil hubs chrome, mavic open pro reg silver rims, black spokes, etc.

    a pair of red velosity rims, (the rear rim has a minor hairline at one of the spokes) and black venus sun-rims, a set of shimano black brakes unused and black handled levers, cable, etc.

    Stolen from 980 bush street basement, they cased the place, knew where to look, I'm so mad, but who wouldn't be. please let me know if you have any info. I'll update this post as I get the details clearer.

    Please advise on contacting bike shops in the bay area about this, I don't know all of em and I have to deal with the cops right now, I manage my building and there were other storage areas broken into, but don't be fooled, they knew what they were looking for!

    Damn, they just took the bike?

    If that's the case, it shouldn't be too hard to figure out who knew where to look for it and would want it...

    That sucks. I'm hooking up the electric fence for the dog up to my bikes, and lock them in a spare bedroom with a guard snake from now on.

    That's why I have a Rottwieler/Belgian Shepherd. It won't let anyone in the house if I'm not with them.

    Hope you get it back.

    Wow, this makes me grind my teeth in anger. Who do you think did this? As other posters said, if they only took that hot as bicycle they were probably after only that and maybe knew you had it?

    I cannot even begin to imagine stealing someone else's ride or anything off of their ride; that is like neckin' with another dude's girl!

    I hope you get it back. (I'm still grinding my teeth and want to punish the thieves.)

    I just moved into a new place and have 'possible bike theft' paranoia.

    That sucks man. Hope you get the bike back. I'd be devasated if my fixie (or my roadie for that matter) got pinched.

    Post on Velospace. Gets lots o' hits.

    To search Craigslist across the country, you can type this into Google: "site:craigslist.org/bik guerciotti" - Just in case someone is trying to fence it in another town.

    The same thing happened to me. Broke into the lobby of my apartment in the panhandle. Took my bridgestone and left the others. They cut the door jam and slipped in something into the strike plate to open the latch. Do you have renter's insurance?

    Check the usual suspects. UN Plaza, Karim's in berekely, Laney College flea (just there last weekend and watched two kids try and sell some mountain bikes they "found" to a guy.)

    Good luck...

    thanks for the support and suggestions. the cops came by, did a report, sent a crime scene investigator out, took some prints (fat chance there). the rest is up to the insurance co. Still, not the intended outcome. It was 6 degrees of separation I'm sure, which is really the disturbing realization in all of this.

    Update

    here's a better description. I have a pdf with pics if anyone wants to shoot me a pm with email address I'll forward that to you as well. Thanks for all the help and suggestions so far, much appreciated.

    1987? Guerciotti track bike stolen!!!


    They went through 3 doors to get it, and broke in to other storage units as well. The computer equip and bikes are the only reported stolen items, I was cased! DAMN!!!

    Details: 1987 Guerciotti track frame, 58cm, red to white to blue fade
    Wheelset - Chrome Phil SLRs laced to silver Mavic Open Pros, black spokes, silver nipples, yellow rubinos.
    nitto jajuar njs seatpost
    white leather concor saddle
    surley chain tug
    unknown bars and stem (came with the bike purchase)
    spidel cranks, unknown bb, but probably same
    NYC bikeworks chrome straight blade front fork
    the original guerciotti fork with yellow star details at the top
    grey shimano br-600 brake and black and chrome lee chi lever
    running 47x17
    red mountain grips with white stars
    ALSO TAKEN - the pictured wheelset, black velosity hubs laced to venus sunrims, black spokes, orange Vredestein Fortezza Pros. Shimano low end brakes and levers, pedal tool, floor pump, etc.

    Call Police and ref report # 061292692, then call Jeff @ 415-516-5192
    Reward if found, I’m a pretty generous guy.

    This makes me think of the dude that had his DeRosa stolen a few months back, from inside a secured space.
