Possibly stolen bike recovered by Monterey Park police

Just received an email from an officer with the Monterey Park Police Department about a suspected stolen bike.

According to the officer, they have recovered a Kestel Talon, roughly 50 cm, with a full Dura-Ace Gruppo. They have reason to suspect it was stolen, but the serial number doesn’t show up in any database of stolen bikes, which suggests that the theft may not have been reported by the owner.

Contact me if you know the owner; you can find my email address on the About page. Or contact the Monterey Park police directly through their Craigslist ad for the bike.

They’d really like to return the bike to its rightful owner. And put the person they believe stole it behind bars for awhile.

    This is awesome. I’m guessing the owner rides it only for races or hardcore training on the weekend and may not even know it was stolen. I’m glad the police have it and NOT some scumbag bike thief.

    Thanks for the heads up, and thanks to the MPPD for getting the word out – hope it is reunited with its owner soon. Are the riders back from London? :)
