    Thief Nabs Tinker Juarez's Road Bike At Gunpoint

    JUNE 24, 2004 -- LONG BEACH, CA (BRAIN)--Out for a road training ride June 9, mountain bike legend Tinker Juarez had stopped to refill his water bottles in a Long Beach park when he felt a tap on his shoulder. Juarez turned to find a man pointing a gun at his face. The gunman demanded--and received--Juarez's Cannondale Six13 road bike and his cell phone.

    "I don't think the guy has any idea of what he has," Juarez said. "When he rode off you could see he didn't know how to ride it--he wobbled off with it still in a big gear."

    Construction had detoured Juarez from his regular training route along the Los Angeles River bike path.

    Yesterday the 2004 24-hour solo mountain bike champion was getting some road miles in on a mountain bike with slick tires.

    "He's just been trying to mentally move on. For a while he just couldn't," his mother Rose Juarez said. "He converted his mountain bike to somewhat of a road bike, just trying to make the best of it."

    Juarez estimated his bike's retail at $5,800, and said it was "probably traded for a $50 bag of whatever."

    Nah, I still have it. It's a little small for me, though, so I'm willing to let it go for a case of Stone's 04.04.04 Vertical Epic.
