    STOLEN TREK 750

    Posted: 08 Sep 2009 08:15 PM PDT

    My Trek 750 was stolen in my courtyard – out the front of my door!

    It is a men’s mountain bike, silver with red and black detailing. It has a 17.5″ frame, in good condition.

    The front tire won’t match the back one – they stole the tire from a bike next to mine. The rear-brake lever is slightly bent from an accident I had a couple of years ago.

    if anyone sees a bike matching this description, please respond or call me at 416-856-0072.

    Thanks!
