Bike stolen Torrance CA

Hi guys, I got my bike stolen in Torrance infront of gracie jiujitsu at around 6:30 to 7:30pm.
The bike is a Giant tcr adv 1 lime green and black color. It has an ultegra groupset with gian slr carbon low rims and is a rim brake.
Please tell me if you see it anywhere.

I hope you find it. Just curious, how was it locked up?

Sorry I'm late. I've heard of people having success scanning the bikes-for-sale section of their local Craiglst. I've even read a couple of stories of people who offered to buy their own bike back, then the seller was confronted with the police. Also one very bold young lady who offered to buy her own bike back, asked if she could take it for a test-ride, and simply never returned. She stole her own bike back. Gangsta!

I know people tend to tell tall-tales on the internet, but I want to believe it's true. We Americans are suckers for happy endings. Either way, it was an awesome story.

Good luck and keep us abreast! (Or two.)

Edit: I forgot to add. Get an ugly, rusted crap-bike, fix up the drivetrain enough to be functional, and ride that to your gym in the future. An ugly, rusted piece of crap is its own best theft-deterrent. (But still lock it up.)

Sux ass. Nice bike. Check out offer up too. Whoever stole that bike wants to sell it, they won’t be doing any group rides

I think this is just a great reminder to have a couple of definitive pictures of your bike including the serial number and pics of any chips, scratches or other identifiable oddities in order to positively identify your bike.
