    STOLEN BIKE. Halp!

    STOLEN BIKE ALERT. Help out a friend. Bike stolen in Oakland yesterday. Custom (tiny man's) Parlee with Dura Ace 7900. Ritchey components. May have had the Reynolds Tubbies on, but need to ask the owner. If not, had Kinlin clinchers on it. Had a Garmin 510 and purple water bottles.

    Please call/text me at 925.three.three.zeeeeeeeeerooooo. 7.two.8.9 if you see it or anything.

    Thanks!

    Sorry man, to avoid a twice daily call from 'Rachael at cardholder services', recommend you obfuscate your phone number a little (as in nine 2 five six twenty three four . . . )
    What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Unless it does kill you, in which case, you wouldn't be here to dispute the point.

    What area in Oakland? Was it a ride off or cut lock? (opportunity vs pro)
    Put up reward posters at local 7-11, check the swap meet, and Craigslist. Claz.org will hit them all.

    Good luck.

    Any identifying marks on it to show its Parlee? Those are not common frames and that's bike's white finish may pass under many folks' radar as something special.

    It's a pearlescent white paint job with white lettering. It's a 46 or 47cm frame, so that'll stand out too. Pretty subtle build with high end parts.

    Instead of a midlife crisis Porsche, he bought a Jetta TDI wagon and the Parlee. Feel so bad for him.
