    STOLEN 2011 Giant TCR Advanced 2 XL

    Hi all,

    I just want to put this out there if anyone is able to help. If you see or hear of it please let me know. And, well, if you're the thief, contact me and give it back no questions asked. God will get his vengance, I just want my bike back.

    Theft of 2011 Giant TCR Advanced 2 which was on the bike rack on our car. It was locked to the bike rack with a cable lock. The car was parked on the street in front of our friend's house in East Sacramento (Brand Way). On 2/10/11 we arrived at 6pm and when we went outside at 9:30pm the bike was gone and the cable lock had been cut.

    The bike is full carbon fiber frame, white in color with black lettering. It has white Giant branded DT wheels, Michelin Lithion front tire and Michelin Pro 2 rear, a white & gray Fizik seat, black handlebars and silver Crank Brothers Egg Beater mountain bike pedals. It has two black carbon fiber water bottle cages and it has a Cateye Strada Cadence computer. Also attached to the bike was a Niterider Rage HID light on the handlebar connected to a battery pack attached to the frame. There are also red flashing bar end lights and a flashing taillight attached to the seat post. It has some small scratches on the right brake lever and rear derailleur from a crash.

    Here's the link to the website with specs: http://www.giant-bicycles.com/en-US/....2/7309/44385/

    The picture shows the bike when I had fenders on it, but it didn't at the time of the theft.

    Thanks for any help. Clint.



    Thank you Lord for strength, endurance, and salvation.

    Such a bummer Clint. I posted your FB link on mine. We will be visiting bike shops in Sac today (for work) so I will tell all the shop guys we encounter to keep on the look out.

    I asssume you are already scouring CL?

    I hope it turns up soon.

    Grace and mercy, man. It's not a crime to trust your fellow man.

    Clint, do the craigslist thing. RSS feed for every region. You may see it...

    My bike was stolen just last week. Apparently I did it to myself too by locking it to the bike rack in front of Safeway on 19th and R.

    I look on CL every day -- so I'll keep an eye out for yours too. I also just roam around looking at every bike I see... no luck yet. But you never know!

    I heard from a few people of some "fencing" operations or "chop shop" type of things. Not sure what to make of it. Let me know if you wan to know more.
