Stolen Bike-Specialized Pitch

This was posted by a friend, Dana Higgins about a stolen bike.  I’ve heard variations of this, the most amazing was someone who stole a BMW first, left the car at the house and took a 10K plus TT bike out for a spin, never to return.  Hopefully, we can spread the word and find the bike as well as educate people.
I got a call about my Specialized Pitch, but the man on the line was preoccupied and didn’t really seem to know much about bikes. He asked if I could meet him to check out my bike. I met up with the guy 45 minutes after the call at the Safeway on Campbell and Prince. He asked if he could ride the bike and I let him in exchange for his car keys. Of course he disappeared and I didn’t have my bike registered with TPD. When I met him he mentioned looking at other nice bikes on criagslist. This dude is white, about 5’10” with a buzzed head and was wearing a blue COX cable Polo, khakis, and dress shoes. The key he gave me appears to be for a Mazda but none was present in the parking lot at the time. Please don’t let this happen to you and if you see my bike around call the cops. I have a picture and will post a list of parts. Lets make sure the bike Gods fuck this dude up.
