|Pacific Cycle the new owners of Schwinn/GT have announced that a trailer full of high-end products including Dura-Ace and Ultegra wheelsets, Saris racks, Syncros components, and Kryptonite locks were stolen. The trailer was stolen in route to Pacific's warehouses. Two other trailers filled with accessories were swiped and replaced with dummy trailers full of rice. |
Wayne Thompson, Pacific's director of logistics said: "We are right on the freeway. It looks like two tractors got off the freeway, dumped their rice filled trailers, hooked up two trailers full of bike parts and took off. The FBI is involved now since the thefts have happened so close together."
Chris Hornung, Pacific Cycle's chief executive officer said: "We found the stolen trailer and it was cleaned out. They even took the tractor pulling the trailer. How they knew to target just that trailer out of the hundreds heading out is a mystery. But it seems like they had some pretty detailed information about our plans." said
"The wholesale value of this was $250,000. Things like the aprons are fairly inexpensive but there are 220 in a box and that's worth $3,000," Thompson said.
Pacific is asking retailers to be on the lookout for suspicious products at incredible deals.www.pacific-cycles.com
