    Trek bike stolen in Houston?

    I noticed a guy in my neighborhood riding a black Trek Fuel or EX, and I really doubt that he bought it. Does anyone know if someone had this bike stolen?

    This post was from Sept 06.
    If the bike was stolen its been sold on ebay mnths ago.
    I did wonder why it was questionable though

    What was the give a way,
    no Camelback, helmet, or shoes?
    Did he not acknowledge you? I think thats a ridiculous and vague statement to make.

    Haha! I know! Poor guy was probably just a casual rider who bought an expensive bicycle. I've seen a lot of weekend neighborhood riders go into a LBS and buy $2,000 mountain bicycles which will probably never see dirt. I don't see the problem.

    I suspected it was stolen because it was a day laborer (yes, probably illegal) who was waiting for work at one of the normal 'pick-up' spots near Shepherd and I-10. The bike was a Fuel EX, and the guy was way too short to ride the bike - he could hardly touch the pedals. This may not have been proof that he stole it, but I'd bet that someone did at some point.

    Nope, not illegal to work during the day, though I wish it were.

    Be careful. Someone may assume you stole your PC as well.
