Nashville bike shop Gran Fondo was targeted by thieves who stole up to US$50,000 of premium inventory.
The shop, owned by Vida and Lynn Greer, parents of TIBCO rider Katharine Carroll, is now missing nine bikes, although thieves left the cash drawer untouched and didn't vandalise the premises.
The couple is now working with Metro Nashville detectives and State Farm to recover the inventory, and have released a list of the stolen stock to warn potential online auction buyers who may see it posted for sale.
