Sunday morning one of our Shimano employees woke up to their garage door partially open and 4 bikes gone. This occurred in Orange County, CA. A couple of these bikes had some very special parts including a Di2 Triple on the Santa Cruz Blur LTC. Di2 has not been delivered to any customers and this is pre-production parts which should make this extremely hard to sell and easy to spot. If you see anyone trying to sell a used bike with Di2 with "prototype
" printed on some of the parts it is most likely stolen!
In the photos above there is a spec list with details of what was on the bikes at the time of the theft and the most recent photos available. Parts that were different from the photo were noted. Please keep an eye out for any of these bikes or parts. Nothing else was stolen, so they targeted the bikes, so they may know something about bikes as they left behind a few other bikes that were not as valuable. We appreciate any help on the return of these bikes.Contact Shimano here.
