This may be a long shot, but I was working a check point for an event in downtown Asheville yesterday and a local Man of Questionable Character walked by me with a large silver Specialized hardtail, that resembled a Rockhopper. It had a long seat post. He was about 5'5". Regardless, he went around the corner and and I heard people talking loud. Another fella came by mumbling: "Stupid a-hole, trying to sell stolen sh*t for $50". I tried to pin point the guy with the bike and he cut behind another building. I couldn't leave to see where he went.

From what I wrote down: Silver, black lettering, silver Fox fork, 29" with disc brakes, padded seat.

I'm sure recognized the person walking it. Haven't found anything posted stolen locally. Will keep an eye out.
