    Damn dude. Really get bummed when I hear about these things. I am on the trails all around the area quite often and will be sure to keep my eyes open (would be tough to ride otherwise). To get better exposure, I strongly recommend putting a post on the Stlbiking Forum which is very active. Also you should post on the GORC Forum as well. If you don't have an account on either let me know and I'll post for you. Hope you get your bike back and put that asswipe who stole your second love (first?) from you.

    Ya man I don't have an account on those. That would be great it you could do that for me.

    It was my like.. 3rd love. It's ok because I learned alot from it and didn't like it alot in the first place. I spent 150 on new brake rotors/pads/adaptors and still couldn't get the brakes to work right. I was pissed.

    Anyway it was my fault. I was kind of on private property, but it was basically a creek bed right next to a major road so im like ... nbd right?

    Down by the creek alongside sulphersprings/vance where the dump is.

    I was riding the creekbed like I usually do and hucked my bike in the woods so I could hike around.

    In the 15 or so times ive been down there I've only seen one person. I thought I was good.
    Very strange situation and pretty stupid on my part.



    Theres actually some really fun riding down there.
    But oh well.

    thanks so much! I really appreciate all the help. Just put my number in your phone and give me a buzz/text as soon as it pops up.

    With that racklove website I think it's gonna be hard for it to go online without it being spotted.

    Just a quick tip - if you do a Craigslist search, don't just limit it to one specific area. Instead, go to Google and type in Craigslist followed by the name of your bike. So, if you have a Salsa Model X, you would type this in (using quotes - type exactly as below):

    Craigslist "Salsa Model X"

    That will bring back results that will show you other Craigslist areas that might have your bike up for sale. It may also bring you to sites that show feeds from all Craigslist adds for a particular bike model in different cities.

    Anyway, I hope this helps!

    Also, go to eBay and (Craigslist as described above) and do a search for specific bike parts that came on your bike. This may give you some additional leads.
