    Stolen bike Creswell / Eugene area

    While staying at the Super8 in Creswell last night my mtb was stolen (cable cut).
    This was a Niner EMD Root Beer Brown color, gold King Hubs (rear SS) with a custom 6speed cassette on the back. Set up as a 1x6. Front was a gold king hub with spokes laced 3 cross with a twist. Jones H-bar. Gold wipperman chain (really stands out). I know, too much gold on it and left it locked to car, not in room.
    I'm hoping that someone might see it in Eugene and report it to Police. Waiting now for Lane County Sheriffs to call me back. Due to be in Whypass for trail work today shortly.

    Let the bike ride the trail, you ride the bike.
    Look where you want to go, not where you don't want to go.

    Good luck with the recovery. Hopefully it's way too conspicuous for the perps to get too far with it.

    This makes me sick because Bob drove all the way from Longview to celebrate with his Disciples of Dirt Brethern & Sistern Saturday night and do trailwork with us on Sunday. But as he slept Saturday night, some miserable dewshbag stole Bob's beautiful bike. Fawkers.

    Hey Bob, thanks again for joining us but of course in hindsight I'm sure you wish you'd stayed home. It was great to see you again and thank you for staying and doing trailwork with us on Sunday anyway. You're a good man.

    I'm going to keep my eyes peeled for your bike... I hope I find the mfer who stole it... if so, you might have to clean some blood off it when you get it back.

    [COLOR="black"][/COLODANGNUBIT SUMBUDDY GET THEM VERMITS I come to the forum to see stories of parties and trail building then I see this, what a bummer. Even though Bob was way too fast on that bike it 's still a bummer. All you Southern Brethren take tomorrow off and find that bike.

    I know it's too late to mention this, Bob, but I always bring my bike(s) into the room with me.

    Best wishes on a speedy recovery & I hope the perp breaks his ****ing ankle trying to ride your bike.

    Here it is resting halfway on a Golden Spike Triple G.
    It also had a Rock Shock Silver Tora Front suspension.

    Thanks for your thoughts.
