Stolen: Specialized Bighit Expert

Postby manton on Mon 19/Jan/09 6:21pm

hi guys and gals
thursday night my bike got stolen from behind my work in greeton, tauranga
it was a navy blue 2004 specialized bighit expert

yes it was wearing on and the fork seals were buggerred but it was my baby

if anyone sees it cruising around can they give me a call and/or take a quick photo

0277761699 or 0272791331

it was running xt rear shifters and derallies
marzocci jr tripples tripple clamp forks
E-13 bash gaurd
truvative chain guide
truvative pedals
truvative cranks
FSA seatpost
hayes hfx 9 breaks front and rear
Shimano saint front hub
fr 6.1 front rim
brand new maxxis minion downhill spacific front tyre 2.35 x 26
shimano 9mm qr XT rear hub
24 inch rear rim
brand new maxxis high roller 2.7 x 24
rear shock was a manitau swinger and it sucks on the return stroke (it actually makes a sucking noise)

most notable thing is probibly the brand new "da bomb" R18 grips with holy shit etched into the side, the realy sticky forks and sucking rear shock

if it turns up in a bike shop (most probibly chadsport, chadwich road mowers and cycles) can the mechanic please take a photo and the name and address of the person bringing it in

it really sucks caus i was just about to take it in to get its seals refitted so i could race in the weekend

that sucks, Might pay to get on the internet and look up email addresses of shops, and forward the description of the bike to them.
Hope you get it back, I'll keep my eyes open.
