Stolen Bike Recovered!

Just saw this on Facebook this morning posted by Fyxation shop Thomas Bike in San Diego, CA. Turns out that a couple of armed thugs went into another San Diego bike shop, Adams Avenue Cyclery, and robbed the owner of the shop at gun point and took his $10,000 bike. Apparently, the following day they brought that same bike to Thomas Bike and tried to sell it to the owner Jinna and her husband - who happens to be a police officer. Needless to say, badge was shown, gun was pulled (pants were probably crapped in) and the bike was retrieved.

I can only imagine the roller coaster ride of emotions the owner of Adams Avenue Cyclery went through this week. Glad you got your ride back!

Here's a pic from Thomas Bike Shop's facebook page:
