 Gazza mate, I'm feeling your pain. And what idiot would steal a custom like this... bloody fool. Take care and ride like you do!

 why would somebody take a fully costomed out bike like this? who are they thinking they will sell it to? john smith?

 That's a freaking awesome bike might I add.

Thieves are dumb, that's super flashy, very easily noticed... hope you find it quickly.
PS: There are no brakes, have you checked the side of the road near downhill paths?

 "bike theft is probably the most serious crime in my eyes"... uhhhh. Bike theft doesn't mean squat in the big picture.

Hope you get your bike back... but regardless, corsair will be insured on it and get their money back... so who cares. Not like they can't replace the bike quickly.

 How did they even steal it? I've never been to interbike but I'm assuming the bike was kept in a convention centre for showing? I'd be wondering about how great the security is at this event, or whether some idiot in the security was actually involved.

 very nice, it like another SX trail but more travel, too bad it got stolen

 all the 2011 bikes get sexier and sexier as the go along!!
  • + 2
 Even if the frame can be replaced quickly it's not like the rest of the 2011 parts can just be replaced tomorrow, the fork is a custom tuned version that may not be possible to replace before Rampage. All that being said Kelly will probably have a new bike before Rampage. As for the insurance issue it's not about the money, and far more expensive one of a kind bikes were stolen last night as well, some with parts that can not or will not be replaced. The fork on Adam Craigs XC race bike was one of only 2 in the world as far as I know.
  • - 2
 Honestly the-freerider, yes. You can get shit air freighted QUICK if you pay the money.... which a company would easily do for their pro rider. I'm sure they could punch a frame out in a week if they dedicate a few of their welders to it. Shipping is a sinch. Only thing that wouldnt probably be done in time is the stanctions on the forks. Big whoop.

None the less, it's a minior set back. Good thing it was a companies bike and not some normal riders tho. Working people would be way more effd.


And why wouldn;t the 2011 parts be ready in time? Companies should have no problem shipping stuff quickly... especially when these bikes get MASSIVE attention.
  • + 7
 @rffr so if bike theft doesn't mean anything in the big picture, i'll steal your bike. it won't matter in the big picture, right?
it sucks to get your bike stolen whether its cheap or expensive. it holds a sentimental value to the rider. you obviously don't seem to grasp this. i've had several bikes stolen over the years and each time it hurts about as much as being dumped. but you probably don't get this. cuz in the big picture your just a bike short. maybe that's your ride everywhere, maybe it's what you use to win a competition, maybe it's something you use on your favorite trail. the point is it is a crime and it sucks massively.
anyways even with a bike like this, if the a*shole who stole it is a decent mechanic, he'll keep the parts that are custom, sell the parts that are pumped out of the factory and disguise the frame and probably ride it or sell it.

i'm slightly skeptical about the issue of it being custom. it's a nice luxury but not necessary to win comps. if your a good rider, you'll do the work, the machine will take you where you want it how you want it. pardon me for being an ass for a minute but it's not like he's missing a leg, what components are custom that are so difficult to replace?
but above all i hope the thief gets caught and the bike returned.
  • + 2
 and as for the insurance, for a pro rider, sure he can get it replaced. but for other people that get their bikes stolen, we usually don't get much money back from insurance companies because they're dicks like that.
  • + 1
 AT had his bike stolen, totally custom Marin outta the Portland Pedal Nation Bike Show and within two months it appeared on the web under a for sale ad. Yep- he got it back. Hope that stokes out anyone that lost a bike. I hope Kelly will get that steed back. Thieves suck donkey balls.

 I was too lazy to read all the posts so I'm sorry if I'm repeating what someone else has already said. It really sucks that the bike got stolen, but come on... this guy stole a super custom boutique one of a kind bike from INTERBIKE!!! Not someone's garage. Anyone who pulls that off truly deserves it.

 I'll have a post on the new Corsair Dominion up tonight. For all those of you that keep saying no big deal the companies can just replace it and airship stuff, Rampage is in4 days and most of those parts can't be air shipped because they aren't in production yet. It's not like Marzocchi has a warehouse full of 2011 custom tuned forks, or Corsair has racks of 2011 Dominions in size large. There might be another one but there might not. And welding up anew one is something that could take weeks or thousands of dollars. Companies don't have that kind of money. The green Hope brakes that were on that bike are almost irreplaceable right now. And what no one seems to care about is how Kelly feels right now. He is an awesome guy and he was so stoked about this bike, to have it stolen less than a week before Rampage is really no different than you having your bike stolen right after you built it but before you even get a chance to ride it, it sucks big time!
  • - 2
 Dude A: Marzocchi has an exact same pair on display at interbike. Use those.

B: Who the eff cares about tuned forks. You can tune one in an afternoon, including valving.

I'm sure corsair has another bike somewhere. No company ever just makes a single frame. They normally have a similar prototype. Throw him on that. Who cares if the hope brakes are green. WIll that help him in rampage? NO. Throw some regular hopes on.

Once again, who the eff cares. It's not a personal bike, so no biggy. I'm sure he didn't spend a penny on it to begin with. It sucks, but it's time to move on and get over things.
  • + 3
 So I'm guessing they added the "super custom green brakes that are impossible to get" to the bike after the pics? Cause it doesn't have brakes in the pic.
  • + 3
 We built the bike as a surprise for Kelly. He had no idea about it until he got there and was stoked. It was a personal thank you for "getting rad". it was one of two large "Dominion" prototype frames and the other frame is in Taiwan so we can't get it to him for Rampage. we have it figured out for a back up plan but to put it in perspectiv...smiles were slamed a bit but nothing gets me down and if this was supposed to happen then we'll be better because of it.
  • + 2
 one of the most lovely bike this year
  • + 6
 Rffr who the eff cares about you? I mean really, it's no biggy, I created a post because someone had their bike stolen less than a week before the biggest contest of the year and there is no way to replace it. Of course he'll have a bike to ride, but it won't be the same.
And for some reason you feel it's necessary to announce to the world that it's not a personal bike and it doesn't matter. Not sure where you got that idea from but keep your sad jealous comments to yourself, you quite obviously have no idea what the real world is like. Kelly isn't complaining about it and it's got nothing to do with money, there is nothing to get over except your negative comments. No biggy, deal with it.

 It seems like this happens every year that bikes get stolen at interbike. Yes I know you cant stop a thief if they really want it but you bet your ass you can make it tougher!
As a suggestion beef up the security and set up a camera on your products. Are the companies that unaware of where the bike is at while tending their booth. Or else they could have it locked where the Alarm goes off if lock is disconnected or have it micro chipped(less than 200 bucks) so its easily traced or a high pitched. Interbike seems like a high class event with minimal budget for stuff like this. I dont think this will be the last one that goes missing.
  • - 2
 most likely someone didnt just go and take it, it was stolen on its way in or out of the booth, so that means they should have a qualified guard that is hired by the owner stay with the bike and watch it every second itts not in the booth

 Hello everyone this is Pablo from Corsair and I would like to say hi and give some detail as to how and when it happened. The thefts or two of our prototype bikes happened overnight along with a Giant/fox and Specialized bikes. Kelly's Dominion rampage bike was stolen with his team-only green Hope brakes on it and the Toro 4x/DJ bike which is also green. I will ask Ian to load a pic of the Toro and Kelly's bike with brakes to show exactly what to look for. Thank you to everyone you wants these A!!holes caught and hung and they wont be hard to spot in the future. I felt bad for Kelly and Bryson Martin at Marzocchi for loosing out the most in this and I'm curiously waiting on the final outcome to who ever slimed there way in and out of Interbike.

 I don't actually have any shots of it with brakes, and I didn't get a shot of the Toro. I do have the interview with you about the bikes as well as a short clip of Kelly with the bike that I'll try to get up in the next day.

 ummm these grade of theives would ship it out of country. If it hits asia... no one will ever hear about it again.

Remember... these are not the dumb criminals you are thinking. Obviously these guys took the time to research it enough to get off the property successfully with it. These guys won't post it on ebay, cl, or sell it locally, they will strip and ship it. Done deal. Life goes on. Cameras wouldn't even do anything. Ya could have it shipped next am. Once it's gone its gone.

Reason why companies should hire their own security. For 10$ an hour they could have avoided this whole thing.
  • + 1
 umm, except that it's a union hall so trying to hire your own security would be physically impossible, you'd have to hire the show security guys for more like $50/hour, and they're probably in on it....
  • + 1
 No it's not. We have the same things up here in the bay area. I actually work quite a few of the events for our company. You can arrange anything you want if you take the time to do it. O and the show security guys cost most places about 20 an hour tops. Especially considering the guys working security are normally paid 10 an hour.
  • + 1
 It costs almost $100 for a guy to take a small cart of stuff from the loading door to your booth at Vegas, outside security and outside help is not allowed. I don't actually don't know exactly what security costs, but you need to order it through the show services order form and they are far from being $20/hour. The last time I worked for an exhibitor we considered it and it was over $200 per night and that was almost 10 years ago.
I don't really care what you have in the bay area or what you do for work, if you haven't worked a show in Las Vegas you don't really have a clue what you're talking about.
  • + 1
 Think of it this way, there are a lot of exhibitors at the show with huge budgets, and they don't hire security because 1. it's too expensive and 2. the show is supposed to have security. If you think that an average large company with 10 employees at the show is spending upwards of $1500-$2000 per day just for accommodation and food and then who knows how much for a booth, move in and move out, shipping etc. the total can come to $50,000 real quick. If private security was an extra $10/hour each night it would be a no brainer when there are $20,000 bikes on the floor... Yes "you can arrange anything you want if you take the time to do it" AND if you have the money. And in Vegas you need a boatload full of money to do anything...
  • + 1
 There are a lot of things companies can do that the general public is not aware of.

And sure, it's vegas, and expensive, but if your willing to spend the 2k to have a few bikes on display, you should be able to afford the 500 or so for individual security for the week.

Companies don't ask for stuff they either A: are not aware of, B: don't think it's nessessary. Either way, I bet they will look into it now. They should take note from the beer industry, as we set a fairly good example of how to run and manage events.

He obviously doesn't have the bike though... are the police actually going to talk to him? If so, Imma laugh, serves him right for being a douchebag.

 No, Unless they think he was in Vegas last Thursday night he's probably all good, not something to be joking about though...

 Sadly, sh!t like this happenes every year at Innerbike. What makes this worse is that next year Innerbike will be in Anaheim CA, and open to the public for a day.

As for this bike, sorry to hear about it walking out. That is one sick fork. Any chance that it will be released for the rest of us in the same paint scheme?

 I TOOK IT!!! I TOOK IT!!! it looked so nice, i had never seen green stanchions before, i couldn't resist taking it becuase i ran out of all of my gambling money, i parted out the bike for 2,000 dollars, i feel so bad about it but now i have 20000 dollars from gambling sorry guys, SUCK MY BIG HAIRY NUTS!!!!

 The fork look pretty unique with the color so it wouldnt be that hard to find to be honest.
They found that bike that was stolen last time (couple of months ago).
Customrides are pretty hard to get rid off because they are custom with colors and so on.
Bet they will find it in a month.

And its pretty easy to steal something, just check if there are no guards/salesmen and just go there directly withhout doubt and grab it like its your own bike. People wont react if its look natural. A smart thief doesnt act like a thief, they act like a normal person.

 I had two 2009 Demo 8s stolen from me a few months ago. Never felt so sick in my life. Thieves are the scum of the earth! I hope this bike is found because it is B-E-A-UTIFUL!
  • + 1
 Dang it did not mean to give positive props to Amadeusg, in fact I completely disagree. I think the bike is freaking awesome and would kill to have one like it. Probably most people would. Whoever stole this bike is a big time idiot.
  • + 1
 the worst part about an expensive mountain bike or any bike for that matter getting stolen, is that the person who stole it, will probably sell it for like 20 bucks. Honestly I know I speak for pretty much everyone on this website when I say this but its so f*cked up to steal shit. Because honestly, I work my ass off for all the stuff I have. And to get it just ripped off like that? That person didnt have to work a single day to get that bike and now they have it. Its so messed up and this is extremely redundant but its just how I feel.

 "I've really got no idea of what happened but... how did this happen? did a guy just wheel the bike straight out of the front of the show? or did the transport guys pull a fast one on him? I'm very intrigued as to how that thing (which is the new jesus in my eye's) managed to just go missing?"

exactly what i was thinking and how would someone not notice someone just walking away with this

 woa... if the thieves were there in the first place... they knew what they were doing. but stupid enough, apparently, because this really is one off. this is not going to appear anywhere that soon. inside job? not really. dont think they are a bunch of crackheads. they can ride their own super expensive ponies or buy whatever else. why was the surveillance so relaxed? that is just stupid, pure and simple. it's not your average bike shop....wtf

 @IanHyland , you said that it was stolen at night when interbike was closed? I don't understand how a bike like that was just left there overnight. You'd think someone would of thought to lock it up somewhere safer?
  • + 3
 There are hundreds of bikes left at Interbike overnight, and there was supposed to be security. That's the main issue really, security at the event either failed or was implicitly involved in the thefts... Whoever took the bikes went for the flashiest bikes without any real knowledge of what they were taking, probably not someone that knew a lot about bikes. That leads me to believe it was probably someone that worked at or around the show and had access, but not someone that was in the bike industry. So security or cleaning staff should be prime suspects....
  • + 1
 nice analysis sherlock Big Grin no seriously...thing is, thieves must be far away now, won't they?
  • + 1
 nope, I'd guess the thieves live somewhere in Vegas... If I knew anything about bikes and wanted to steal something from Interbike I'd take a stock high end 2011 bike. No one would notice that on craigslist, Pink Bike or Ebay in 6 months... So like I said it was a crime of opportunity by someone that had access at night and didn't know what they were taking. Someone that lives and works in Vegas...
