A customer of mine, who just received his bike a few days ago had has bike stolen from atop his car at a cafe on 6th and High in Eugene. If you see it, please contact me and the police.
It's a titanium, belt drive commuter bike with an eccentric bottom bracket and a very long head tube (205mm) with about a 45mm head tube extension. The bike is roughly a 60cm ST with a 57cm ETT. Unfortunately I hadn't yet stamped a serial in the shell (my priority was finishing and building it up for Cycle Oregon) but it should be an extremely identifiable frame because of the HT extension and most obviously the style of break for the belt drive in the drive side seat stay.
Currently, there's a blue anodized head tube logo and black Vertigo decals on the down tube.

the break looks like this with a suble line above the dropout (this isn't the stolen bike)

Thanks for keeping a lookout everyone

edit: this bike also has curved seat and chainstay bridges that have 5x.8mm threaded bosses welded in. to my knowledge, there are very few ti frames that use curved bridges and even fewer that accommodate fenders.
If a Rohloff with a belt drive cog turns up, please let me know. I'll post the serial number here as soon as I find the paperwork
at the same time a Serotta ti/carbon bike was stolen. I'll update the details when I get them. I repaired this bike last year. On the left chainstay, there's a very small patch where the tire rubbed a hole through the tube. It's blended very well but when the wheel is off, there's a very slight ripple in the tube.
