  • Unfortunately the main update would be that the bike is pretty trashed after being stolen and then found again. The beautiful paint is scratched and the frame has some real scars :( it's an alu frame and I worry about riding it...

  • I still can't believe that thing was recovered. Unless any of the dings have flat sections/creases a la the photo below, you'll be alright IMO.

    The tubing walls on your bike are nowhere near as thin as alu tubing used nowadays (e.g. lots of complaints about CAAD12 dented top tubes due to very thin walls) so I suspect it'll likely be a lot more resilient than you're anticipating. However, if you don't feel comfortable riding it, ride one of your other sweet bikes instead! Probably makes more sense given all of the great roads/trails near your new house, anyway.
