My bike was stolen last night in Marin (Sf bay area), causing me to fall into a deep state of depression. Here are the specs:

Large Black Yeti DH9 Frame
2002 RockShox Boxxer w/ TiNi stanchions (the gold ones) and '03 metal decals.
Fox Vanilla RC shock custom tuned by Push Industries (has push sticker kit on it)
Gold King Headset
MRP Guide
Hayes Brakes
Race Face Cranks
Sram X.0 Derailleur with X.9 Shifter
Mavic Rims laced to Hadley Hubs
Easton Bar and Stem

This is a pretty rare setup... the only one in the Bay Area that I'm aware of. The Push tuned shock and TiNi boxxer should make it easy to identify. Also, the frame's sticker kit was only done on a limited number of frames (the regular one features more yellow and turquoise).

Please keep an eye out. If anyone spots the bike or recognizes any part of it for sale online, drop me an e-mail asap: [email protected] or call anytime (415) 383-5714

hey dude

You'd definitely want to alert each and every bike shop in the area you can coz if they know, and then word gets around, someone can drop in and say 'hey y'know what I saw, this [email protected] Yeti, blah blah' and they'd instantly be alerted...besides, if the perp was stupid enough to bring the bike in to some bike shop in the area, he'd instantly know its yours. It'll take some cash, some patience, and a little bit of prize money, but I bet you'll drastically increase your chances of getting your bike. Sorry to hear all that man. Good luck in finding it.

With a bike that expensive you might want to get it insured. As for getting it back, the first thing you do is put up flyers. Works for everything. Was it locked up? If the thief is a pro, he will take apart the bike and sell everything seperately. He will sell the frame and fork last. Good luck getting it back, ill keep an eye out on ebay for it.

dude that really sucks. the guy who stole it should be castrated. do what the others said and put flyers up in all the local bike shops. you could also try posting in the bay area forum, so more people in your area can be alerted. also if you havent already try posting on some other forums(ridemonkey, hcor, pinkbike). hope you get it back.

on a side note, i think i might of met you before. did you race the firestone dh in santa barbara?
