Stolen bike alert - Colorado Springs

My wife's Electra Townie got stolen off of the moving truck, we think in Colorado Springs. It's a bright blue Townie 7 that I had hot rodded up with an alloy swept back bar, Avid SD left lever and an xt 9spd sti on the right side, FMF cranks, Deore rd, LX v brakes, Bonty Select wheels with moby bite tires, and an airborne Ti seatpost. The driver called today to give us the news and schedule the delivery of the rest of our stuff. They'll cover a replacement, but I'm just pissed someone else is riding the bike I built for my wife. So if anyone sees it, beat the crap out of it's owner

How about just notifying the police instead? That way one doesn't run the risk of beating the crap out of an unsuspecting, good faith buyer...

Yeah bicycle thefts are a priority for the police.

I don't know.... that bike sounds pretty gay, are you sure your wife didn't pay someone to dump it in Prospect Lake?

Consider yourself beaten with a limp cod.

I'll keep an eye out...

I see a lot of bikes with rattle can spray paint jobs
downtown. I suspect many are stolen.

A picture might help...but I wont set foot in prospect lake.
