On August 22nd this bike was stolen from a bona fide trail faerie. Over the last 10 years, Kevin has built over 40 miles of quality singletrack in the foothills of the Superstition Mountains near Phoenix, Arizona.

I invited him to Vancouver to experience the fabled North Shore and Whistler, both on K’s bucket list. We managed to still get our rides in, with the help of the good folks at Endless Biking.

He has gone home without a bike and continues to build the Gold Canyon trail network. Check out his latest trail, Phantom, on Trailforks and reviews on mtbr.com. http://forums.mtbr.com/arizona/new-trail-gold-canyon-1022750.html

IMHO, trail builders are the top of the food chain in our world, and this one needs your help. We have learned that his bike was sold on Craigslist, and probably is being ridden right here in our backyard. Please keep a look out for it.

The bike is a 2014 Niner Jet RDO, black and lime green, 29er , 2x10 XT, Crank brothers Cobalt bars, ergo grips, Specialized Ground Control tires, WTB seat, Serial Number AC 13600264. See attached photos direct from the thief's Craigslist ad.

Contact your local police if you see it, or me. Quote VPD file VA16-167416. VPD phone 604-717-2626 telephone response unit is pursuing the case.
