    Stolen intense spider comp 29er

    I was just visiting the Pisgah/Dupont area last week(8-3/8-10) and staying in the Maggie Valley area.

    My Intense Spider Comp 29er was stolen off the back of my car in Maggie Valley sometime late Saturday night or early Sunday Morning.

    I have a feeling someone may have followed me from Dupont, the reason I say that is I saw a green sedan drive by the cabin I was staying in that looked like a car that was in one of the parking lots at Dupont.

    Anyways, here are the details on the bike.

    black carbon frame with gold lettering, white fox fork, all XTR, RS dropper post, Thomsen stem with gold faceplate, Easton Haven Bars, it has a Selle Italia SLR saddle that has the little lip on the back that you see on tri-bike.

    If you see anything out there, please let me know.

    And thanks for taking the time to read my post.

    You noticed that but not somebody following you for about 1.5 hours?

    I am guessing it was somebody more local to that area. Can't really see somebody following you that far having no idea where you would be stopping and you not noticing be followed.

    Anyways, sorry this happened and good luck.
    Just stick it in granny and start grinding.

    I know, it sounds crazy but your mind starts f-inn with you when something like this happens and you start replaying everything in your head and that was one of the things that stuck in my head.

    There is an Intense Spider 29 for sale on Asheville's Craigslist. Listed today. There is no picture but it might be worth a look.

    My apologies kjlued, I thought you was the OP.

    I am not familiar with Intense models, I just thought it was worth a look. I thought maybe they guy intentionally listed it that way for a reason and it had no picture. Sorry if I wasted anybodies time.

    Thanks for the heads up. I have a bunch of notifications set up with Tags like "Spider", "Intense" and the like. When that one hit, it was like 4am and I made a beeline for the computer to check it out. My heart sunk when I read the listing but I emailed him anyway in case he did intentionally mis lead in the listing but it seemed legit.

    Thanks for looking out.

    Call Hearns on Asheland, (downtown AVL) he gets a lot of used stuff come through, give him a heads up to watch out for it.
    My bike MCA kinda climbs like a billy-goat. WOO WOO!

    do you live near AVl? a bike like that is pretty easy to spot. a friend had his bike recovered because he put flyers up with pics at every bike shop in area. usually dou&^es who don't know anything steal those bikes and take em for a minor repair or to find out what its worth. maggie valley pawn shops would be good to check. good luck

    I don't, I was on vacation at the time it happened. I do have a friend who lives in Asheville and he mountain bikes as well. He is checking the pawn shops and keeping an eye out on the trails also. I have sent pictures to the bike shops and of course the Police have the serial number which gets distributed to the pawn shops. I keep checking Searchtempest every day as well. Thanks for the help.
