In the market for a new bike

After enjoying a few cold ones after the Denver JUG last week, I walked outside to find that my bike was gone. It was a nice bike (a Gary Fisher Sugar 3+), so now I'm in the process of trying to find the same one on eBay. The loss should be covered under homeowners insurance, but it's a high deductible that'll likely only result in a few hundred bucks. Oh well, it's just a bike. With the bad luck I've had in the last couple months (lost phone, laptop dying in Norway), I'm hopeful some good luck is right around the corner.

Sorry to hear of your loss. It's nice to see you have a positive outlook on life. Most of us would be raising hell and be willing to shoot the damn thief. Good luck.

Sorry for your loss. I had my first mountain bike (Diamond Back Ascent EX) stolen in a burglary of my girlfriend's apartment back in 1987, and I'm still pissed about it. I loved that bike. But it was no Gary Fisher! Sounds like you've got a good perspective. Similarly, after deductable I only got something like $225 for a $475 bike.

I bought a 2005 Giant Reign 3 and love it. I've been riding/racing for about 8 years and have always been on a hardtail. The Giant pedals really, really nice (no bob) and climbs awesome for a 6" travel front/rear all-mountain bike. Test one out if you can.

You should get a kryptonitelock. As long as you don't have one of the recalled tubular styles. They cover you up to $3,500 in anti-theft protection if you get one of their high end locks.. Also try following their lock up tips.
