Oh,,so sorry so hear about your loss Surely, what part of LA are you from?
I live in Westwood. The thief snuck into my building's parking garage and actually unbolted the upside-down "U" that was bolted to the concrete that my bike was locked to. They took that along with my bike. They left the bolts on the ground, probably to mock me. There would have been no other way for them to steal it- I was using a Kryptonite Evolution Mini (using the Sheldon Brown Lock Strategy) and a cable through the front wheel. They took one other Trek bike, but left a few others that weren't locked up and were worth little money.

Fair enough.

It would be nice to know what the difference is between 'FX alpha black aluminum' and 'gold series aluminum'.
