Our Santa Cruz bikes were jacked either this morning from our garage in Hillsboro. We live in a quiet neighborhood and whoever stole our bikes knew what they wanted as the bikes were all the way in the back of the garage and not obvious from the street.
One is a large gray Mens’ Heckler with the Shimano unified brake/shifter combo levers, which they didn’t make for very long so this should be easy to spot.
The other was my girlfriend’s gold flake small Juliana, a very unique color, with SRAM XO components, so this should be easy to spot as well.
The thieves were very brazen as the only time I keep the garage open is when doing yard work, so they stole these bike from right out in front of me. They also stole an Echo cordless battery powered gray leaf blower, some other hand tools, and some random boxes. We’ve had some shady looking lawn people in the neighborhood that I’ve never seen before, and the amount of stuff that they took makes me believe that they had a vehicle to haul our stuff away in. My gf is very bummed, as she only has one bike. Please be on the lookout for these bikes in Portland.
