    Stolen Race Bike - Merlin - Denver

    Hi Guys. I hope it's ok to post this here. My fiance had his bike stolen tonight right off of the rack on the back of his car. He's training for Ironman Wisconsin and I can't begin to tell you how upset he is. I'm sure that guy that took the bike will try to sell it. My fiance has already made a police report, but to be honest with you, he doesn't think that he's got a chance to get it back. I disagree. His bike is a one of a kind and built for him. I think if we get the word out, someone is bound to see it, either in a pawn shop or at a store. It's a 58" light blue Merlin Light with tri bars and ksyrium wheels. The front and back fork both have "Bikes, Inc" or "Bicycles, Inc" on them. There is a naked Polynesian lady decal on the front. Personally, I've never liked him having this volumptous female decal on his bike but it's turning out to be a pretty good identifiier. The bike was taken around 8pm on 13th Avenue in Denver. I'm told the guy that took it was also trying to break into cars as well. I'd appreciate it if you would keep an eye out for this bicycle. If you spot it, my fiance's email is rogerm48@earthlink.net. Thanks!

    Make sure to search craigslist.com and ebay for it. Use some of the keywords that you mentioned above.

    Good Luck!

    You might also post your description in the triathlon and classified forums over on slowtwitch.com. Best of luck getting it returned.

    Thanks a million, guys for your responses. I've posted on slowtwich now...thanks for the site. I'm checking ebay every day. Kinda off the subject...did anyone see the post that's right above me "Sell Parts or Complete"? It's been moved...I'd be interested in what that post said. Thanks!

    It wasn't for a Merlin...

    Sell Complete or Part out?
