Mike Montgomery’s DH and Slope Bikes Stolen

While on our way up to Darren Berrecloth’s event in Mount Washington, Mike Montgomery’s Banshee Legend DH bike and Banshee Rampant Slope Bike were stolen out of the back of his truck. The truck was parked in a hotel parking lot full of lights and security cameras. The bikes were also locked to the truck and to the other bikes. Also stolen was a Saracen Myst DH bike on loan from Saracen Designer Ryan Carroll. The funny thing is that Mike’s Banshee Amp is still on the empty rack. I guess the people responsible can tell when a bike has been beaten and left it for dead.

If you see any of these one of a kind bikes contact Nanaimo Police or the lovely people at Pinkbike.
