    Default Stolen Gaulzetti Pavaix!! Mine. UPPDATE! FOUND!!

    Folks please be on the lookout for my Gaulzetti Pavaix. It was stolen sans front wheel off my porch here in San Diego. I was loading stuff in the truck- forgot I hadnít put that bike in the truck yet- started driving. I realized about 10 minutes into my drive to work and spun around and sure enough- it was gone. My porch is not really visible from the street so Iím sure one of the folks who hang out doing weird stuff in the alley grabbed it.
    Iíll post pictures when I get in front of a desk top.- but itís painted black about a 57-58 and has Record EPS and Bora wheels.

    This sucks. Anyway. Keep an eye out for me.

    Once Craig posts pics/details if anyone has good resources for this please speak up. I know there are FB pages for this where the thieves sell.

    Shit. Not easy to resell or ride such a unique bike, which the idiot who stole it probably does not realize of course. Hopefully it will work out and you will find it.

    I'll be on the lookout in case it pops up locally. Sorry to hear this happened to you. Something like that is my perpetual nightmare.

    That would entirely mess up the whole week. Best of luck in getting it back!

    Sorry to hear it Craig. I will definitely keep an eye out.

    That kind of theft is especially stupid, as it's pretty unique and far less useful to the person who got it than the person from whom it was taken.

    That is the problem, we do not realize that people is looking at our toys (and they don't realize they cost us hard work). @Craig, all the best, hopefully we can get the news out and loud and clues are found. Do not underestimate that they're getting smart and it may end abroad

    I feel your pain.
    Unlike a stolen Picasso, where would you go with a bicycle there are 10 (?) of in the world?

    This whole bike business is so weird. When I lived in Hawaii we got a few bikes back taken by the dumb ones, but the rest just went gone. On an island with only a half dozen riding routes you think you would see them if they were still on the island. One of the bike shop guys figures that the thieves have bike boxes ready to go and they are off the islands in less than a day after they go missing via Fed Ex or UPS. I can believe that as there were way too many high end bikes just gone.

    Our bike messengers had the pulse of the island so you may want to check with a few of them locally Mr. Craig. If the bike is just around held by the sketchy drug heads, sometimes the messengers will see it. They often ride in places we don't normally go. Like the Gattoman says, there are people watching your stuff go by all the time. Best of luck finding your bike.

    You might see if any of your neighbors have security cameras that might of caught something on video.

    UPDATE EVERYONE!!!

    i got it back.

    i got a call yesterday at the shop from a guy who had owned a bike shop and continues to collect bikes. two guys went to his house with my bike trying to sell it- knowing that he collected bikes. the guy saw it and the campy eps and knew it was stolen so bought it from these guys for $300 with the intention of finding the owner.

    he googled the name and tracked me down. i insisted on giving him $500 although he didn't want to take any money. but i forced him too. i didn't press him on finding out who the thieves were. my best guess is that the thief tried to sell it to his drug dealer and the drug dealer knew that this old guy in his neighborhood was in to bikes so.....anyway- i wasn't going to get the old man in trouble with a local pharmaceutical distributor.

    strange thing- the thief had had the bike for less than a day and swapped the seat from a neon SMP to a specialized comfy saddle- he'd tried to color in the white text on the seat tube with a sharpie but only made it up to the "z" in gaulzetti- and worst of all- he cut off the EPS junction box thing under the stem. i have not idea why- but maybe he saw the lights and thought it was some kind of security gps locator thing like motorcycles have now.

    anyway- thanks to everyone for your support and help! i never thought i would get it back. i really didn't.
