No worries, will keep an eye out for some upper end gear. If you could post a general list of what was pinched giving us an idea of what was taken.
No problem bro. Im always checking CL. Post your list when you can.
Sorry to hear that bro. Good luck.

Here is the list from Breck
NM peeps> thanks again...
Not quite all of them, but if folks cant get me their info, I can only do so much. To be clear, all of these bikes were taken from homes in Breck and just so the critics are clear, not every one in Breck is rich. In fact the ďrichĒ people are the ones that own second homes here and the victims of these thefts ALL work for a living just like you and the thefts were from deed restricted neighborhoods for us poor folk, so to the neigh sayerís that think we all rcih up here GFY! Also, none of these bikes were mine, but they were my neighbors and fellow townies.

Not an O2 thief.
Pretty amazing that so many bikes were taken from a high density housing area and NOBODY saw or heard anything???!!!??
Somebody in the area that you guys have seen and maybe even know took those bikes.
I'm so glad I have good neighbors who hang out on their porches all paranoid like when some car that doesn't belong on our street drives past.
I was working on my bike in the garage tuesday night about 8pm. Besides the bike I'm working on, four more are visible hanging from the rafters. Some guy kept driving thru my cul-de-sac verrrrry slowly. The 4th time thru I confronted the dude and asked if he needed something. Turns out he was a pizza delivery guy. I felt a little foolish but oh well.

When you find yourself on the side of the majority it's time to pause and reflect.
Right after I moved into my house a few years ago, I had the garage door open on a saturday afternoon. For some strange reason, I decided to walk out into the garage while I was eating lunch and some guy was walking off with my tool box. He was nearly to the end of my driveway. I yelled "What the hell are you doing?!" and he gave me some lame story about how he thought this was his friends house.
The irony was that the tool box he grabbed only had bike tools in it and I'm pretty sure he wasn't a cyclist because he left my bikes in the garage!
Sorry to hear about these thieves. I'm thinking that it's some neighborhood kids. Were only bicycles taken from these places?
