South Of The Border

Can you imagine being in a flea market out in Guanajuato, Mexico and running into the famously stolen build from Lance Armstrong's bike shop Mellow Johnny's, the Trek Equinox TTX SSL!? It's been missing since November, stolen straight from the shop in Austin, TX. Just recently the $10,000 build was spotted in perfect condition without the wheels, for sale at a mexican flea market and sold to someone (for much less of course) which took it to a local bicycle shop where it was identified and returned, and everybody in the end was happy...even the thief I'm sure! Looks like the goods are definitely across the border. Makes you wonder what else one can find in those parts. Read more about it here.
