Mack Murphy’s trailer containing all of his Goldsprints gear was stolen out of a lot in Marin County last night. Murph organizes the crazy indoor bike races as West Coast Goldsprints. From Carlos @ Bike Monkey…
Sometime between 8pm last night and 8am this morning my entire GoldSprints roller racing rig was stolen.
It was parked in a lot in a normally safe, patrolled, well lit area in an office park on the south side of Novato.
The thieves broke the substantial Masterlock brand tongue lock that was on the trailer. Leaving only a bit of debris and a portion of the lock, they towed the entire thing away. It is a PACE American 12′ dual axle white utility trailer with a side door and barn doors on the rear. I had just put a burly new Masterlock on the rear of the trailer as well.
All four of my gold metal flake Kreitler rollers with fork stands, the four wood stage decks, four Marin Ignacio black fixed gear bikes and four Globe Roll bikes were inside.
They are unusual in that they all have 53 x 13 gearing and are brakeless fixed gear bikes.
My Mackie speakers and Mackie subwoofer as well as four bins of sound, video and computer cables were inside along with all my associated tools and hardware. A Rane brand mixer, 19″ LCD monitor, video projector and Globe banners as well. Two power drills and a red Craftsman toolbox full of hand tools.
If you spot the gold Kreitler rollers or fixed gear bikes with stupid tall gearing from Marin or Globe or any of the other items I’d love to hear about it as would a couple of local police agencies.
…ouch…i wonder if they had any idea what was in there or if they were just after the trailer…i can't imagine that gear could be used anywhere in the cycling world without somebody realizing what was up…
…good luck, mack…
I imagine the thieves just took a random trailer. Like you suggest, anybody who knew the contents would realize how hard it would be pawn off (well, except for the sound gear — lots of money in that I'm sure). I'm Murph has insurance on this.
