Since wide public attention through the use of social media seemed to help Lance’s TT bike reappear at the Tour of California last month, I thought I’d do my part to help turn up another unique bike that’s gone missing recently.
This blingy GT Golden Zaskar went missing while en route to a video shoot from Madison, Wisconsin to Pennsylvania in a Thule box labeled “ZASKAR.” The shipping label arrived ok, apparently, but not attached to a box with a bike in it. With its custom gold-finished Shimano XTR drivetrain, Mavic Crossmax SLR wheels, and Ritchey bar and stem, it shouldn’t be too hard to spot this one.
GT’s new Golden Race Series is to kick off at the Sea Otter Classic next month and the missing bike is one of the “trophies” awarded in the series. The winner of the first race would win their choice of golden bike – either the Zaskar or the fully-suspended Marathon. To keep the bike, they would need to defend their win at the following race or give up the bike to the next winner. Learn more about the bike and the series at www.gtisgolden.com.

Oh… almost forgot: GT is offering a $3,000 reward for the return of the bike.
