I went down to the Santa Clara Police station this afternoon and got my bike back!
The only thing missing were my pedals, which had been replaced with a pair of these really awesome pedals:
Apparently, Josh didn’t like my Crank Bros. I think I’ll give these fine Wellgo flats to whoever guesses closest in the “Josh Scarbrough is on the lam” contest. Bonus! They have reflectors, which will keep you saferer on night rides in the Saratoga hills by the reservoir…
I am deeply indebted to Steve and to the larger Bay Area MTBR community – without your help there is no way I would have been able to recover my bike. That people were willing to help out someone that they have never met says a lot about the character of mountain bikers. The world is definitely better with you in it. Of course, I am also indebted to Officer Dave Albert of the SCPD, who did an amazing job.
And if you see an ugly-assed dude with a salt-and-pepper goatee riding a large nude HD somewhere between Santa Cruz and Fairfax, he didn’t steal it.
