Stolen Bicycle Alert: Red & Black Cervelo R3

UPDATED 1/1/2011: This bicycle was recovered in perfect condition by the Moore Police Department.  Full details here.

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.

  1. Thank you SO much for getting the word out about our dad’s bike. This is absolutely heartbreaking for us, and we just want to see it make its way back to us.

    Thank you so much and God bless.
