Stolen bike alert - custom Patrick bike in Santa Cruz (xpost)
My builder friend, Greg Patrick Gardner just sent out the APB on this thing:
This bike was stolen yestreday around 10-11 am, December 7 in Aptos CA. Its one of three Patrick Cycles frames in Santa Cruz and the only Patrick mountain bike owned by a SC resident. It's an ash grey 29er SS w/ eccentric BB, disc mounts and drive side bottle opener. Marzocchi comp fork, avid juicy brakes, mavic hoops laced to Phil Wood SS hubs, truvativ stylo cranks, titec seatpost and stem, King headset.
Jason Hajduk( firstname.lastname@example.org ) is the owner-had in for three days, roughly 50 miles on it only. stolen from his garage, worth roughly 3200.00. 25" effective TT c-c, 17" seat tube c-c. This is a unique bike, the only other person riding a Patrick this big is me. I still know the owner of every bike I've made as well. Contact me at the above email address or Jason at the above email address.
Ok, this thief is vile. Please spread the word and help catch this guy. Greg Patrick Gardner is a San Jose bike builder working full-time as a paramedic. Each one of his filet-brazed frames is a labor of love.
I wish i had info
I would like to express my deepest sympathy in response to your loss. I live in Canada, I'm afraid cant be of any help, but i wish you the best of luck in tracking down the bikes
(if you find him, beat him without mercy)
If you find yourself struggling with loneliness, you're not alone. And yet you are alone. So very alone.
We have at least two Santa Cruz cops that are regulars on this site. One of them has already volunteered to put the alert to all the night shift cops. Good deal. If that bike is to be found. Mtbr people will find it!

I may not have tiome to go, but they seem to show up at swap meets. Are the Swaps at the Oakland Airport, or at Laney College still going on in the winter?
Damn, that is a beautiful bike. I never really like the look of a brazed frame, but WOW. I hope you get it back.
"Welcome to my underground lair...."
some friends also had their bike stolen downtown last week, from their garage.
the police suggested going to san lorenzo park and scoping out the area, seems the trolls
and meth heads sell their stolen bikes there. i wouldnt go alone though.
