Holy hell.... some one is bold or completey stupid.

Going to have to hang on to it for the next 5 years or part it out carefully.

Hope it comes back though.

It's obviously not anyone involved with the bike community... stealing these one-off factory bikes has got to be the dumbest move ever, so it stands to reason that whoever took it had no idea it was unique and just thought "dang, sweet bike"... if they're smart they'll dump it in a lake somewhere, or just leave it unattended at the nearest bike shop.

Add Cathy Pruitt to the list (a few days ago in Santa Cruz - purple Jamis)

Stolen is Satatoga? Probably stolen by a spoiled brat. lame. It's going go as well as stealing Armstrongs Livestong TT bike...

Tip of the iceberg! In Santa Cruz, add at least 3 very recent garage cleanouts to this list (multiple expensive fs bikes). This crushes one's sense of security and the $$$ required to replace is huge. Sucks big time.

At least 6-8 BMX bikes (a couple recovered locally).

My Black STP3 dj with X9 drivetrain, Fox fork and E13 guide.

A friend's VP-Free and pimped MOB from his locked camper shell (MOB recovered in front of Pet Smart in S.C. -- a 10 year old girl and her 12 year old brother!)

I've been followed home twice now (didn't go there and wove around neighborhoods to confirm I was being followed.) Any car with bikes on it can lead thieves right to home base. Be careful out there, it's an epidemic. Get renter's insurance or homeowners insurance and document your bikes! Hopefully all of these dicks will be caught.

Stolen off my porch on the 3rd floor with a 9ft tall fence that curves on the top. It was only out for 15 minutes in the middle of the day. And, no it was not an inside job if that's what you might be thinking. Never recovered but a nice check from my homeowners insurance bought me a custom built TBC Bank.
