My bike just got STOLEN out of the back of my truck while parked in the Circus Circus campground. It was laying down in the bed so as not to be seen. It was not locked up because the only lock I have is being used to lock up my husbands bike to the tongue of my trailer. I have been in my trailer the whole time but can't hear s*** cuz of the wind.

I am f***** piss3d. Someone cased me and knew it was in there. It is a 2008 Giant Reign 0, size small, with a ton of upgrades. 2010 Rev fork (white) 2010 RP23, Crossmax XL wheels, Conti X-king Protection 2.4 (not even avail in US yet), custom DeVinci 170 cranks (squaretaper BB), XO twisties, Deva Saddle, Alligator rotors.

This place sucks!



This is an older pic with old saddle, old cranks, old tires. Not that it will turn up or anything!

Yeah your right vegas SUCKS.... Because thieves only live here right, riiiiiiiiight....
While I feel your pain and frustration at having "YOUR" highly valuable property stolen that shite coulda happened anywhere... Why wouldn't you bring it into the trailer with you or take the front wheel off and put the bike in the truck cab?

If I ever find the thief, running him over is not what I had in mind. Why didn't I do all those things, cuz I am an idiot, and my trailer is too small, it is was windy, and I was tired, and it was a hassle, and a zillion other useless lame reasons. And Vegas still sucks, the only reason I came with my husband out here was for a chance to ride something new. Sorry.

Getting a bike stolen sucks. Sorry. Taints your feelings about the place it was stolen. Could happen in Moab or Fruita.

Check pawn shops first thing tomorrow. Lots of 'em in Vegas. Never know.

Sorry for your loss. I know exactly how you feel. After having several bikes stolen over the years, I never , ever , ever leave my bike unattended unless it is in my locked house.

Wow, nice bike. That really does suck. You'd think with all the security they have, there'd be a pic of the a**hat on some camera.

After a proper mourning period, I'm sure you'll build up an even better ride.

actually, homeowner's insurance will cover it. MInus your deductible of course, and if you have 3 claims within a 10 year period they will probably drop you, oh and your rates will probably go up too. Gotta love insurance companies! My bike was stolen 2 years ago and after I found out all of that info. I just ended up eating the loss.

Dang, sorry to hear about your bike.... it really only takes a second and it's gone! :madman:

I'll keep an eye out on the local trails. BTW, the NV State DH Race is this Fri/Sat/Sun out at Bootleg Canyon, it may be worth a look around out there for it.

Car ins won't cover it. Gonna call home ins soon. In case anyone is going to Bootleg this weekend, here is a close up pic of my new cranks. The bash guard is different from the one in the pic. The cranks are pretty odd so they will stick out like a sore thumb. There are many little identifiers on my bike. If you think you spot it, PM me please. I have zero hope of ever seeing it again.

So you lef tyour bike unattended and unlocked in the back of a pick-up truck in a casino parking lot? And you're surprised it got stolen? Doesn't matter if its smallville, Dakota or Vegas thiefs live everywhere.

I'd check with the hotel security. I do hospitality architecture for casinos and I can promise you there are very few places at a casino that are not under survelliance.

I was not in a casino parking lot. I was in KOA, a campground. I was IN my trailer just feet away. There is no security, no cameras. The guy across from me says he saw a couple of black guys walking around before it happened. Other then that, nothing. Is it even worth it to drive to pawn shops?

Well, whoever stole it probably isnt going to ride it. Then again, when I drive to work sometimes I see bums riding nice bikes. Sorry you lost your bike-that sucks big time. I didnt even know there was a campground down there. No way in hell, that area is so shady.

File a police report if you haven't already. If someone tries to take it to a pawn shop the serial # will be run and you might get it back. Good luck. Sorry for your loss.

The people that stole it most likely live in the apartments on the other side of Sahara on Tam Ave.
