Mark this one under "never thought it would happen to me." While I was away this weekend someone broke into my garage and made off with my bike. I live in the Sunnyland neighborhood in Bellingham.
I custom built this bike exactly how I wanted it, so I'm sure you guys can understand my frustration with it being taken. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated, and monetarily rewarded. I absolutely love this bike.

Other unique identifiers on this bike:
I have a carbon fiber rock guard installed, which goes from the middle of the downtube to the bottom bracket.
When it was stolen I had a TACX Tao bottle cage on it, and the lower bolt had broken so it was temporarily held on with black electrical tape wrapped around the down tube.
Cable stops were drilled out for full-length cable housing.
Had a Blackspire Stinger chain tensioner installed.
If you see a bike matching this description, feel free to call me or the police.
