Rocky Mountain Has 160 Bikes Stolen From Container

Oct 5, 2018

Thomas new Altitude


A shocking number of 2019 bikes were stolen from Rocky Mountain's warehouse in Vancouver on Monday night. They were mainly full-suspension, which leads us to believe this is at least a quarter of a million dollars worth of bikes. Keep your eyes peeled for bikes with the serial numbers on the list below, or serial numbers that have been removed, to help Rocky Mountain and the Vancouver Police Department catch these thieves.


PRESS RELEASE: Rocky Mountain Bicycles

During the night of Monday, September 24th, a container full of 160 Rocky Mountain bicycles was broken into, and every single bike was stolen. The container was on the grounds of our warehouse in BC. The 160 bikes were all 2019 models, brand new, and would have been received into the warehouse and then sent out to our network of dealers in Canada based on their orders.

bigquotesWe are very disappointed with this situation, and the impact that it has on our IBD network. We have dealers across Canada that were expecting to receive their order from us in the coming weeks.Raymond Dutil, CEO of Rocky Mountain

The full list of 160 bikes, complete with individual serial numbers, is available at the link below. We are urging any dealers that come across any of these bikes with matching serial numbers (or serial numbers removed), to contact us at info@bikes.com so that we can transmit the information to the Vancouver Police Department, who are handling the investigation. 

Please see the complete list of serial numbers: HERE

 @rockchomper: my first thought was, they are probably in an shipping container somewhere in the pacific as we speak. Selling a handful in north America is very possible, but a hundred and sixty, brand new enthusiast level bikes? I don't think they could move that many without someone blowing the whistle. Rest of the world where the local interpretation of the law is different, probably more likely.

 Wow , welcome to 2005. So here is how the story goes sports fans. People with tractors, artillery, expensive shit have been using dynotags for a minute. If you can't figure out where to put one then sell your bike basically. They are passive GPS locators, meaning water proof, no battery etc. Not Extremely accurate but give about 150 yards minumum location based off your cellular signal. Give me 150 yards and I'll show you 50 new assholes, comprende. That's only one of many ways but the cheapest easiest way to track via phone app. Class is over , go find your bike.

 ShempHoward: Dear friend, you seem to be mistaken. Dynotags are luggage and pet location tags, their qr code needs to be scanned by someone so they can be located. A passive GPS is a type of recording device that uses a GPS module, a battery and memory. A dynotag is not one and the company never claimed such things. Please do some more reading and please stop insulting people.

Geolocation/GPS Support
Most tag views performed in the field are done by smart phones that have precise location information. The smart phones employ a variety of location determination technologies, such as GPS, Cell Towers and WiFi service hotspots. If location querying is enabled for a dynotag (on by default) the Dynotag service asks the reading device for a precise location. The viewer device at that point may ask the user for permission to send location information. Once accepted, Dynotag service logs the precise coordinates in the access log.

If such information is not sent from the viewing device, Dynotag attempts to estimate the location from the IP address. The precision of the latter method can be poor for mobile devices but fixed locations (home computer, etc.) may yield location information within a few city blocks, useful for many applications.

Meaning:
1. Someone has to scan it
2. When they do, the device used to scan it is what sends the location, not the piece of paper you glued to your bike

 @NWuntilirest: What brands of bikes do you sell? If your average markup is around 40% that is a brand I need to have in a store! Been doing this for years, and to crack much past 35% is rare. 30% is more like it. THEN we subtract shipping, cost for building the bike, rent, utilities, insurance, 2-3% fees when the customer pays with a credit card, free maintenance offered post-sale, etc... Being in a high-rent area, when we sold a $6K bike, my partner and I felt pretty fortunate taking $250 or so each out of that sale. 40% margin would let us take maybe $400 each out of the sale. That's a big raise!
  • + 2
 This^^
  • + 2
 @ATBScott: Yep, exactly this. And to hit 35% you are typically needing to commit to a sizable pre-season order with a specific brand. Otherwise it's in that 25-30% range. Rent, utilities, payroll, etc and you're thankful that your good customers bring ya a 6 pack every now and then, because some months it's verrrry tight. Yeah, 6k mountain bikes seem pretty absurd, but people have to remember those aren't going out the door 52 weeks a year.. some days you've only made $120 on that $500 city bike, but you keep at it for the love of cycling.

However, as a previous co-owner of bike shop having to pay my insurance, I completely understand that a claim like this would cost the company being insured. Raised premiums, reduced coverage are just two things a quarter million dollar insurance claim could cause. That could affect Rocky Mountain's bottom line, maybe they can't hand out a bonus or hire that new warehouse worker next year. They are some massive corp to absorb that hit easily.

The difference between me taking your personal iPhone vs a crook taking 100 iPhones NIB from Apple needs to be made. Corporations plan for shrinkage, and no ones personal info or property is lost. I can stomach that loss vs your personal stuff being taken. The bikes in this article will be insured 100%. If for any reason they are not, that’s lack of responsibility of the insurer (RM) and a sad, but tough lesson to learn. In that case they’d be the victim. But it’s unlikely the bikes weren’t fully insured bc RM is a solid established company. Sorry I upset you guys. Reminder to keep an eye on your personal bikes.

 How the hell do people steal 160 bikes in a shipping container in a warehouse? The size of the boxes that are shipped are usually 1 foot wide and 5.5 feet long, maybe 4 feet tall.
