    Upset STOLEN: 04' Santa Cruz Blur (Sept 8,04)

    This evening during the Mt. Bike Advocacy Group meeting at Pat's Bikes my Santa Cruz Blur was stolen from my car. It was last seen at 7pm and it was gone at 9pm when I returned to my car.

    Bike Description:
    04' Santa Cruz Blur
    Color: Black Size: Medium
    04' Fox Float RL Rear Shock
    05' Fox Float 100 RLT Front Fork
    XT Cranks, Hubs,Cassette, and Derailers
    Shimano Integrated Hydralic Disc Brakes
    Mavic 717 Wheels with MTB 2.1 Weirwolves
    Shimano XTR 949 Clipless Pedals
    Teri Ti Seat
    Cane Creek Headset
    Easton Seatpost and Handlebars
    Dura-Ace Chain
    Misc: Had a bear bell, light and computer mounts on the handle bars.
    Rear Detachable Mud Flap and a 'Trek' Tool Bag on it.

    Main Frame Serial: 04ZDH00682
    National Bike Registry : 000134810

    It was cut out of the roof racks securing mechanisms (locking cable and straps) and the Kryptonite Cable cut. My car was parked across from the Kaladi drive through window.

    If anyone see's my bike or saw anything please let me know.

    I am offering a cash, no questions asked, reward for its safe return.

    This is totally heartbreaking. A sour end to a productive evening. We all know how much our bikes mean to us, so let's keep our eyes peeled (especially in those pawn shops) and find Christopher's bike!

    That is horrible, Chris.

    I am on the look out. Man, it seems like yesterday that we were at Artic Vallery together.

    Any luck with your insurance company?

    Thanks for the concern, as far as the insurance, even though I have full coverage auto insurance they stated it was not covered. They will pay to repair the scratches down one the side of the car and on the roof (there are footprint scratches across my roof) and replace the bike rack but nothing for the bike.

    I am still trying to persue something with my home/renters insurance but I am not sure how much that is going to help if any.

    That's brutal, until I saw this I felt fairly safe with the same Kryptonite lock. I 'm vehicle shopping right now and I was thinking about an all-wheel-drive car. Then I could just strap my bike to a rack, but this makes me think I should look at something that I can carry the bike in, like a sport ute or a wagon. Good luck with the search, I'll keep an eye out too.

    Well I spoke with my renters insurance and they would cover a depreciated value of the bike minus the deductible. So about 2/3 or so might be covered, but I obviously would just prefer my bike back versus having to repurchase everything , fork out the difference, plus potentially wait another 2.5 months wait time to get a replacement.

    So I am going to wait a few weeks to see if it shows up before I start looking down that path.

    I would also like to say that the biking community has had a really great and supportive response and that I do appreciate it.
