That was one sweet ride! I'm building one up that's like this, will be using lighter Sram components in place of xtr tho. I'm sorry your bike was stolen. Bike thieves are lowdown slime. Whoever stole your bike didn't NEED a bike, they saw a nice bike they WANTED but didn't want to pay (maybe cased it for a while), planned how to steal it and executed their plan and executed your dream in the process. Well, I know it's unlikely, but I hope you got your bike back. Here's a theft story with a happy ending: My brother woke up to some noise around 5AM. Got up to check, saw the gate open to the alley, and garage door unlocked (his fault). Looked in the garage where he kept his brand new several thousand dollar carbon baby - GONE!!!. His blood began to boil (he'd had the bike before this one stolen as well). He jumped in his truck picked a direction and about five miles away he FOUND!!! the guy by chance joyriding his baby. He chased him down in his truck following him offroad into a park until the idiot finally biffed. He told the POS to empty his pockets: wallet, phone etc. and gtf out of his face then called the cops. He got his bike back by pure LUCK!!! He told me something that will always stick with me tho: "I was so angry, I could have killed the guy...just ran him over". That is the emotion a bike thief elicits: homicidal rage.

zzzman20: Sorry to hear your bike got stolen. Did you report it to the police? If so, did they make a report? Do you have a picture or ever write down the serial number of your bike?

The next question is do you have renters or home owners insurance?

If you did and have all of these then you can at least get what the bike's original cost was back. I had to do this when my commuter bike got stolen at work. I understand you spent more on the bike with upgrades but for what it's worth it's better than not having a bike to ride at all.

I hope you either get your stolen bike back in the same condition you left it or you get the insurance involved and pick out a new bike.

Um, I think the statute of limitations is at issue here. For the theft and this thread.
