The one-of-a-kind Canfield Bikes Tilt
prototype that was stolen
last Friday, April 2 in Salt Lake City, UT, has been recovered.
As of Wednesday, April 7, the bike is back in the possession of EXT-USA. The bike was recovered in excellent condition, and EXT-USA is able to complete testing and tuning for the Storia and Arma coil shocks that will be available on both Tilt and Lithium frames.
Canfield Bikes received several leads and reports of sightings of the bike thanks to the Utah mountain bike community. On the evening of April 6, someone contacted Canfield claiming to have the stolen bike in their possession. The bike was recovered the next day by EXT-USA employees within blocks from the site where the theft occurred just five days earlier.
No further details are being released at this time because an active investigation of the incident and persons of interest by the Salt Lake Police Department is still pending.Statement from Canfield Bikes:
