The blogspace for the SMU Cycling club.
Is this the one Michael been threatening to borrow because of the insufficient lock?
Yes, I saw it clipped to a railing outside of Cox. tempting the fates for sure!
I hope you go to jail for steeling that bike
what a fool. posting a picture of a rare bike you stole online. genius.
First rule of stealing something is that you should not post said stolen item on a blog for the world to see. Also, judging by the seat height it looks like someone went through the trouble of stealing the wrong size bike. Besides, who would put Crank Bros pedals on a Pinarello. You'd think since SMU hasn't had a football team worth paying for in a few decades rich boosters would kick y'all down some money for bikes.
ha ha my god you folks have nothing on cycling NOTHING ! What a sin, to have such a low life ride this frame in such manner...

Rather than leaving anonymous comments or disparaging remarks, contact one of us in the club and we can address this issue, especially since we have no knowledge of the circumstances regarding this accusation. Scot firstname.lastname@example.org
http://www.competitivecyclist.com/road-bikes/whats-new/thieves-economic-bloodletting-and-other-news-from-the-week.282.htmlThat second item might be of interest to the club.
The bike was such an anomoly, Greg took the picture and posted it as a recruiting tool, no less! I don't think the student had any inkling it would be put on the blog. Little did we know it would be another black mark in the history of cycling at the school (the Law prof who ran over that Baylor Law grad at White Rock comes to mind)We will prevail though...
Thanks for the update, Scot...I really don't see this as a black mark against the club...on the contrary, I think its important to remember a couple of things...1. The student who was in possession of the bike was not a member of the SMU cycling club...this was an individual's behavior2. Without a club member taking a picture of this bike and posting it, it might still be missing3. Several members of the club have been victims of bike theft themselvesToo bad some of these posters seem to assume that the club itself would be involved in a theft...that's 'genius'.The guy got caught because he was (fortunately) stupid enough to display it around people who know their bikes.Would be nice for competitive cyclist to post something on their 'what's new' that acknowledges the club was not involved in the theft and in fact, played a role in the recovery of the bike.
I will ask them to do that when we speak.
