Stolen TCR

just saw this on craigs list, i feel bad for the guy, sent him an email asking details, and let him know id keep a lookout. i guess this one just got to me because you can tell how much this dude put into this bike. so im posting this, for anyone in the area.

That totally sucks, and I'd like to know the details as well.

But I'm also thinking "anger management" classes and please be sure you're running over the right guy on the right TCR.

man i hope no one has a similar bike to this guy because he will see blood if the bike you're riding even closely resembles his.

prepare to be run over followed by a "sorry dude wrong bike"

When my fixed gear was stolen I drove around the neighborhood looking to see if anyone was riding it. I also scowered craigslist but nothing.

these stories scare the crap out of me. last time i got my bike stolen was in high school. that was over 15 years ago. since then i make sure its never left by itself. im curious how these bikes got stolen. ive had things stolen from me so i assume that everyone is a possible thief. id be flipping out too if i lost a $7,500 bike.

I would f&*k some sh*t up if my bike was stolen. I don't blame this guy one bit.
I hope catches them and runs them over. Shame about the bike though.

What an ass. Can't even keep training logs or fitting measurements. Also of note, he is not the only one in SD with a Rapha team kit. But seriously guys, you have to wonder how the bike was stolen. A bike like that is something you don't leave lying around. Hell I wouldn't even leave it locked up anywhere except my bedroom.

O.K. Here is the story. This guy had his TCR in his Euro van parked outside of his office, at the end of the day he returns to find his bike is gone. This all happened during the day in a busy area. Fortunately his insurance covered it and he scored a new De Rosa King 3. Obviously he posted out of anger, frustration, with a little humor. Here is his exact reply to me after I had asked for details to possibly help.

"out of my eurovan in the driveway at my office.right at 5 while people are coming and going. bold move. swear it was locked, not sure how he perp'd. insurance covered it, and i happened to score a new de rosa king 3 off some guy for $2000, so helps ease the pain. but i still feel pretty violated and want to have a sit-down with whoever has it. "

I saw four guys on TCRs today, and one guy wearing a Rapha kit. I ran over all of them just to be sure.

You're welcome.
