    good luck, but those puppies are gone.
    The Highlander was a documentary, and it was filmed in real time.

    Any other details? Where were they stolen from? Keep an eye on craigslist, they usually wind up on there or in a pawn shop. Good luck, hope you get them back.

    Both bikes were stolen from a locked and secured storage until in the Kenilworth area of Asheville. The locks where drilled out, a panel of the door broken out to gain access to snap the door cable in the storage until. Both bike where last seen on Dec 22 and the found missing on Jan 2.

    Jeez...sounds like highly motivated thieves who cased the place before making the move. Would lead me to believe they knew exactly what was in the storage area and they are not dumb enough to put this up on the local cl or pawn shops. Good luck and good for you that you have the serial #'s. I always say I'm going to record my numbers and photograph my bikes but I never do it.

    I just can't believe they stole 2 mountain bikes from somebody called "2stolenMTBs".

    E - you beat me to it... I nearly posted something like: "Déjà vu - you just stuck yourself with a bad karma moniker on MTBr".

    Another great lost bike contact:

    The frames of the two stolen bikes were found today, both bikes have been completely stripped. The frames were found outside under a deck on 43 Caledonia in the Kenilworth area of Asheville. Along with the two frames was another stolen Kona Dawg Deluxe frame, stripped as well.

    Yeah like KJ said, these folks have some clue about bikes and bike thievery because they're smart enough not to try to sell the complete bikes - and probably make more money selling parts separately any way. Yuck. Scum bags.

    Sounds to me like a first rate ass beating might be due in the Kenilworth neighborhood. Post a time and place on here. It could be like a Gathering.
