    Located possible Stolen Stumpjumper

    I have a "High end" Specialized Stumpjumper that was found after a report of a fight (San Diego, east county). It appeares to have been stolen awhile ago. The seat and pedals don't belong on the bike and it has not been maintained the way it should be. The serial number is gone.

    If you had your Stumpy stolen, please pm me with all of the information/details of your bike, including; color, frame size, build, suspension, wheels, etc. Please include pictures if you have them. I would like to get this bike back to it's rightful owner.

    Thanks,

    Dan

    No one? So is this bike going to turn out to be once owned by some rich kid that got hooked on Oxy and then traded it for some heroin to get his fix for the day?

    I already posted it on San Diego's Craig's List. I'm going to post it on Orange county, Riverside and LA on Tuesday. Does anyone have a suggestion of where else I can post this bike?

    Thanks for your help,

    Dan

    There's a stolen bike registry thats intended for people to post their bike when it gets stolen. Don't bother with the PD as they won't do anything without a S/N.

    And I can say with relative certainty that the bike wasn't hocked . . . they wouldn't have bothered to take off the S/N. Did you check the rear triangle for a second number? On my bike, the S/N is on both the front and rear triangle.

    Edit: And good Karma to you, sir!

    I looked at the rear triangle but I will look again. It's funny you say the PD won't do anything without the serial number. I took the case from one of my partners because I want to see the owner get their bike back. I have seen a link to a site about stolen bikes but I didn't see much info on the site?

    Thanks,

    Dan

    Well, the chances of the owner being a member here is a lot slimmer than you think.
    Then you need to hope he actually see the post.

    If the bike had been stolen for a while, I doubt the owner will check CL or other places you may post it. The owner may not even be from Cali.

    Truth be told it is going to take a bit of luck to find the owner.

    Still good Karma and some plus rep for trying.
    Good luck on finding the owner but don't be disappointed if you don't.
    Just stick it in granny and start grinding.

    Well, if you're a police officer (which I'm guessing you are at this point), you're better than the lot I've been unfortunate enough to deal with up here. When I had my bike stolen, the police basically said I'm SOL and told me to eff off.

    Clearly the OP is seasoned when it comes to stolen property. Dopers remove serial numbers because when they're high out of their minds, riding on the sidewalk, with no bike lights on at 3:30 AM, looking for cans and stuff to steal in alleys, it's harder to prove they're in possession of stolen property, if you can't prove the property is stolen.

    Anyway, I'll be looking for this bike at the auction.

    Good luck
