My bike came back!!!!
If you know me well you know I have been waiting for this day for almost 4 years. This bike was stolen in Portland on my birthday in 2009, and today it came back. I got an email late last night with a phone number saying "please call me" with a subject that said "3Rensho". So I called him this morning. Talked to him to confirm all the parts. It is my bike 100% complete from the day it was stolen. He did not steal it. He got it from a family friend and decided to do some research on the bike and saw it on my flickr and also saw an old post about it being stolen. So he made a Flickr account to contact me about returning it. I am beyond happy and thankful if fell into the hands of a decent human being. Gonna try and drive down to Portland this weekend and get it from my friend Patrick who runs Pedal Consumption. He was nice enough to pick it up from the nice guy this afternoon. My mind is totally blown. Can't believe I'm getting it back complete almost 4 years later, let alone in perfect condition.


Only has this bike a couple months before it was stolen.
It was stolen in Portland in August of 2009 on my birthday at a Pedal Consumption event/race.
It's still out there! Please be on the look out.

Saw your update on

Saw your update on PedalRoom, glad you are reunited with this beauty!

ser numbers

do you have the serial number for the frame or fork? May help if someone did a repaint or tries reselling.


I didn't even have it long enough to remember to write it down.

But it's the only 120x8mm spacing 3Rensho in the world.
And with the webbed bb should set it apart from others too.
It's probably at the bottom of the river over the Burnside bridge right now...

i still see this your bikes

i still see this your bikes stolen poster im really sorry that happened because this is the hottest bike on here ;)


When you heading back to PHX for a visit??? This bike was unreal for your intended use in Seattle, Unfortunitely I did not get a chance to see it or cruz it.. It dissapeared just days before I moved back to Portland.. Hope things are well!!
