More stolen bikes - black Access XCL & Scott Speedster roadbike
Stolen from a friend's locked garage in Montclair Oakland last night:
This bottom photo shows the frame, while the teal Commencal pic shows most of the oddly graphic'ed components that were on it when stolen (see below).
18" Black alloy Access XCL 26"
Identifiable parts (not shown in the picture): Suntour fork, stem, bar, post and saddle were all from the Commencal shown below (goofy teal graphics and all) should make this bike easily identifiable:
Has new BB7 brakes on it, BTCEB sticker on the seat tube, and a gold "Behind Bars" sticker on the top tube. Please send a PM my way if you see it.
 His road bike was stolen too: A large Scott S50 Speedster, all stock like this one, has Shimano m324-type pedals (1/2spd, 1/2platform):

Having a bike stolen a few years back it's a shitty feeling. Truly sucks! Sorry to read this. Hoping for the best in your recovery.....
You only live once, but if you work it right, once is enough.
Sorry for your loss, try the Oakland Col. swap meet or Ashby Bart swap meet. Good Luck!
You might try this - https://racklove.com/stolen-bike-finder/ (a search engine that compiles ebay and CL posts with searchable features to find a stolen bike)
Found by buddies bike in a few days listed on Craigslist. Got his bike back and the theif got arrested!
Much appreciated. Seems like some D-bag thieves post images without much text description - "Nice racing bike" type stuff, without brand or model info. That said, another tool in the work is always welcome.

The thief got arrested but had actually already sold the bike, but somehow that person returned the bike to the police station the next day. Totally did not know what they were doing. Drilled out the rims and installed Schrader tubes, must not of had the right pump. Shock was fully extended, think they hit it with a compressor
