Year: 1995
Brand: Specialized
Model: Rockhopper
Color:Dark Blue
Serial: DW675537
Stolen in Portland, OR 97214
Stolen From: Basement of house on SE 11th and Lincoln
Neighborhood: SE, Ladd’s Addition
Owner: Dan Craig
Description: My bicycle was stored in the basement of the next door house. Both
houses are owned by the same landlord. The basement door was
sometimes locked, sometimes unlocked. Many renters and others had
access to the basement. I stored my bike in there around April 2008 when
we moved into 1104 SE Lincoln. We moved out of the apartment to 2100
SE Larch on March 5/6/7 of 2010. This is when I noticed that my bike was
gone. I was looking for it a few months ago and couldn’t find it, but I
assumed my wife had moved it to our storage unit, but it turns out that
she never touched it. The landlord knows nothing about the
disappearance. The last time I used the bike was around September of
2008. The bike was locked only to itself. The bike is a dark blue
“Specialized – Rock Hopper” mid 90’s model, 1995 perhaps. Purchased
new from Collins Cycle Shop in Eugene, OR. The seat is black, has red
highlight in the center from front to back and an indentation for comfort.
The seat has an anti-theft cable on it. The handle bars have mounted
grips on the ends, at 90 degree angles, bent at the tips, aluminum in
color. The handle grips have been replaced from the original grips when
the end bars were mounted. There is a water bottle cage on the front
angled bar of the frame. Lock was mounted on back frame bar. There is a
black rack mounted over the back tire. There is wiring and mounting gear
for a trip odometer (left side) and a light (right side) on the handle bars.
The frame bar has some scratches in the paint. The pedals have toe clips.
I believe that the frame is 19″ and is a men’s frame. I registered the bike
with University of Oregon Public Safety (DPS) in the late 90’s. There was a
sticker on the rear frame of the bike from the UO with a serialized number

on it. The bike has 21 gears, I believe. Additionally, my helmet was stolen
at the same time. The helmet was a late 2008 model, Specialized brand.
Police record with: T10001352
