Many of you probably met Jim Reading at some point. He was a local cyclist who passed away on July 17th after a battle with leukemia. Well, to make matters worse, on Monday his beautiful Red & Black Cervelo R3 was stolen from the family in Oklahoma City. The family has set up a Facebook Page and a Twitter account to disiminate information about the theft. The serial number for the bike is #CVR3512044. It is a 2006 Cervelo RS Carbon bike, 56cm with a 2010 SRAM red front derailier, SRAM dual pivot road calipers, LOOK Keo pedals and a 2010 Mavic Ksyrium SL wheelset with one red spoke. A picture of the bike in question is below:
Anyone with information regarding this bike (or any of it’s components) should contact the Oklahoma City Police (Local: 911, Outside of OKC: 405-231-2121) immediately.
