    Brodie Bruzza "Hardass" stolen from UCSC

    My buddy and I had our bikes stolen for UC Santa Cruz - Porter College building. Bikes were chained up like crazy and they still managed to get them free.

    My bike is a Brodie Bruzza "Hardass" hardtail mountain bike. Color is brown. I just got the bike 2 weeks ago from a local biker, so i don't know every single component, but I'll list what I know. I also just got into the sport and fell in love

    Shimano Wheels
    Fox Talas RLC front suspension
    Hayes Comp Brakes
    Bike has a canadian flag below the seatpost.

    Attached is a picture. PLEASE help me find this! The thief also stole a 2006 GT i-Drive 5 2.0. Gold color, with fox float rear suspension and fox vanilla front suspension.

    A harsh "welcome to the sport" . . . first rule: Never leave your bike locked out of sight. Period. When I was in college, my bike was always kept in my room.

    Chances are high that your rigs will be re-sold. Keep an eye out on the online classifieds.
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    The important thing is don't let this deter you from the sport . . .

    One idea is to check with your parents homeowners policy and see if it might be covered. There are some policies out there that will cover belongings while away from home, including college.

    Thank you for the reply! We have a $10,000 deductible for our homeowners, so that is out of the question.

    We filed a police report, and I am going to email all the Santa Cruz bike shops and Pawn Shops weekly to try and get some leads.

    This will NOT deter me from the sport. I started mountain biking a 2 weeks ago and have fallen in love with the sport. That is why losing my bike has been so depressing. It's funny, I just spent $130 the day before we left for UCSC to get a tuneup and new chain.

    I hope I find my bruzza!
