    First, did you call the cops? You need a burglary report taken. Provide the SNs to the officer so they can be put into NCIC. That way, if the tweakers try to pawn the bikes, you'll get a flash. Then keep checking craigslist.

    Sorry to hear about your troubles, man. Thieves are scum.

    Yea Police where 1st call. Garage Door Co was second. I am Replacing the doors with the windows at the top. Then I will be adding a motion sensing alarm in the garage before I start leaving my bikes out there again.

    I have had maybe 6 bikes stolen from the garage over the years. Have now moved them to a secret location (which I am not divulging in this thread in case you are a scum-bag thief.) It takes a little more time to get ready for the ride, but I haven't had another bike lifted in the last 8 years or so....

    I'm sorry to hear about your loss. On April Fools Day my wife tried the old "Your bikes missing!!!! " line on me....even though I knew it was April Fools Day....those words caused my gut to sink....

    Hoping the best for your outcome, but if I can offer up any advice, it would be move your bikes out of the garage to a safer place.... I know.....sad that you would have to even consider that....

    That does suck. Its like losing a best friend. Just do what i do.....put the wife in the garage and keep the bikes in the bedroom. Maybe that why I get the cold shoulder? I'll be on the look out.

    You can use this site to search all Craigslist, ebay and kijiji all at once. The Tomac might be the easiest to find because of the rarity. Hope it helps and good luck.

    What about home owners or renters insurance? That would cover the bikes right? Just curious as most people do use their garages for storing their bikes.

    Many companies will cover them. You should call and make sure though, you never know and would hate to find out after the fact. I also take pics of my bikes (and other valubles) and store them on my computer, a memory stick and a cd (x2).

    Hate to hear about that and will keep an eye out.

    Hope you are able to locate your bikes and maybe the officer will be nice to look the other way while you introduce said thief to a good ole justin roper to the rear end.

    Just upped my coverage and found out that thru my renters insurance that my wife and I can claim theft of things in up to three different places. If I visit phx I am covered and my wife is covered up here at the same time. I didn't know that. Pretty cool, but I have to say I fear for the poor fool who breaks into my place to steal a bike. Seriously if someone steals my computer, no biggie...steal my bike....god help you..

    Thanks for all the words of support and yea Home Owners will cover them but not the time it took to get them dialed in. So I start from scratch and all of our premiums will notch ever so slightly up.

    Mount Dora Cycles - thanks for the link. Thats the info that make this site so good.

    I am down but not out.

    Man, I feel sorry for your loss. Got my bike stolen once, awful bastards. On an interesting note, I recovered ONLY my frame when someone got caught selling it on the local forum


    Im from Singapore btw, just happened to chance upon the thread as I was using the search engine for "Marzocchi" ..

    I feel for you man. That really stinks!

    There seems to have been a rash of bike thefts lately. Where are they all going? Is it someone taking a trailer full of bikes to another market to try and pawn them? Is someone parting them out? What is it?
    Getting out there one day at a time.

    if had dawned on me I would have.Didn't realize it either until I seen this post again. However its hard to keep track of every stolen bike .There has been alot and I just seen it in the last few weeks which is 4 months later.

    Thats why we need a stolen bike sticky thread would make it easier to cross reference stolen rides with bike for sale elsewhere

    Glad to hear you got your bikes back. It would be cool to see a complete list of MTBR members that got bikes back. We should also plan a group ride when scum bag Diets goes to jail.

    • Insurance did help.
    • I did replace 2 before Police recovered the two.
    • Insurance did not want recovered bikes back due to the condition they where in when returned. Missing wheels, breaks ect...

    I only missed out on a few weeks of ridding. Thanks to all. Get out and ride and lock em up and keep them out of site when not in use.


    GnarHammer - Thx for the CL link. close but unless they swapped a bunch of parts cranks shock rims tires stem...

    Hey Paul- I love the sticky idea. It needs to have a strict format and not allow any comments in the thread itself unless it is a stolen report. Otherwise, the thread will be diluted and no one will go to it.

    Info that should be posted by the victim:
    -Bike brand, model, size, color, serial # and any special parts that would be easily identifiable.
    -Pictures! When I see a post on here from a victim and there is no photo, I will admit that I don't go to the manufacturer website to see what it looks like.
    -Locale of theft- that way other locals can keep an eye out.

    Anyone have any other suggestions? I am sure I am missing something. The stolen bike registry site is great- but realistically, when I think of the 15-20 sites I go to every day, adding another does not seem practical.

    Yes First report info only any other post should be removed. That way its only stolen bike info.

    Thanks for keeping an eye out. With all the Blue Kona Coilers out there it like the needed in the haystack.

    The Photos I posted where kind of old. the final config on that bike was DHX5 pushed with the rear DOPE break system WTB dual duty disk and Panaracer Fire FR. The blue peddels had been replaced with newer Black Mallets but the most identifiable item was the 2007 AM1 with the TST swapped with RC2 cartridge from a 66.

    If they where smart the would have parted it out. They would make more money that way.

    They busted the Fence and the Thief. Retrieved over 100 bikes between the two with two of my three in the pile. Hate to go accusing anyone posting adds for a Blue Coiler and having it asking for photos of SNs...

    Carma has been generous I hate to blow it by getting greedy.
