October 3, 2005 – When Haro’s employees returned to the Sands Convention Center on Saturday morning to start packing up their Interbike trade show booth, they discovered their locked cables had been cut and six mountain bikes had been stolen at some point during the night.
“These bikes have a lot of non ride-able parts on them and some frames are not heat-treated. They are photo samples only and are not safe to be ridden. In fact, they could be downright dangerous,” said Wayne Doran, Haro’s Quality Control Specialist. “Bike shops should keep an eye out for anyone who brings them in for service or warranty, and consumers should be wary of private individuals trying to sell them a 2006 Haro mountain bike”.
The bikes that were stolen include:
– .357 Magnum downhill bike in metallic gold, size medium
– Werx 5 VL120 cross country bike in metallic gold, 18″ (may be dirty since it was displayed at Dirt Demo)
– Sonic VL120s cross country bike in dark grey, 18″
– Shift R3 cross country bike in royal blue, 18″
– Shift R5 cross country bike in red, 18″
– Extreme X6 freeride bike in semi-gloss pewter, 16″
These bikes should be easy to identify since these particular models are not available in shops and will not be available for purchase for several months.
Anyone with any information about these missing bikes is encouraged to contact Haro Bikes immediately at 800-289-4276 or e-mail Jill Hamilton, Haro Marketing Manager at <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>email@example.com.
