    MARCH 11, 2003 -- LAKE FOREST, CA (BRAIN)--The GT Technical Division's Lake Forest, California
    office was burglarized March 4 and seven bicycles were stolen. The burglars may be in for a
    surprise, though, as some of the bikes were missing key parts or were not heat-treated.

    Chris Holmes, GT's marketing manager, requests that anyone who may see bikes of the following
    descriptions call their local police department and GT at (949) 461-5946.

    The following were stolen:

    1) Gloss black Jim Busby prototype full suspension bike. "This bike is not heat-treated. Whoever
    rides it will kill themselves the minute they go off anything bigger than a curb," Holmes said.

    2) 2003 DH-i, size M, dark grey in color, wrong upper crown on Boxxer Team fork

    3) 2003 Ruckus i-Drive 1.0, size M, dark grey, missing rear shock and hardware

    4) 2003 i-DRIVE 1.0, size L, stock 2003 bike, silver/gold/grey

    5) 2003 i-DRIVE 2.0, size M, stock 2003 bike, black/grey/blue

    6) 2002 i-DRIVE 2.0, size L, silver with 2004 dark gray RockShox Duke Race fork, XT/XTR parts, DT
    Swiss rear shock, WTB wheelset and SDG black/silver saddle

    7) 2003 Jamie Bestwick Pro, stock bike, dark green < end >

    This is classic, "This bike is not heat-treated. Whoever rides it will kill themselves the minute
    they go off anything bigger than a curb," Holmes said.

    And this would be different from their "typical" production crap how???
