Dean Gray wrote in an email that the bike jacking took place late Sunday Dec. 18 as it started to rain.
Here is what Dean posted on Craigslist trying to find his bike:
On Sunday late evening Dec 18th I was assualted by 3-4 teens on the west Santa Cruz bikepath near St. Mary’s road.
I was knocked down and kicked in the back and my bicycle was stolen.
It was/is a mid-eighties Puegeot mountain bike. Here’s the description: Black scuffed up lugged frame, nitto dirtdrop stem , chrome bars , leather grips, Brooks B-66 sprung leather saddle, sugino black powder coated triple crank, Ultegra dueraillers, Suntour thumb shifters, black Sunlite front rack, aluminum silver rear rack, Alex black semi-aero rims, Conti tires , silver Tektro canti brakes, red Jannd panniers and a black Jannd trunk bag on the rear .
I built up the bike over a period of about five years and it was my sole means of transportation. Please let me know if you see it. It’s probably around the St. Mary’s –Grande area. The photos I have are not great , but they should give you an idea. Please call 248.5056 if you see it. thanks–Dean
Dean said he filed a report with Tucson Police Department and Pima County Parks and Recreation, but hasn’t heard back from the Tucson Police Department.
If you see his bike call the police and Dean.
