SACRAMENTO - Still no sign of Lance Armstrong's missing time-trial bike, or the other two bikes stolen from his team over the weekend.
Armstrong broke the news of the theft on his Twitter.com microblog Sunday morning.
"There is only one like it in the world," Armstrong wrote of his time-trial bike, which he rode Saturday afternoon in the Sacramento prologue of the AMGEN Tour of California. "Therefore, [it'd be] hard to pawn it off."
Armstrong's Livestrong team says a reward is being offered for the return of the three bikes, which were stolen sometime between Saturday evening and Sunday morning from a team locker at the Sacramento Residency Inn on L Street. Sacramento police have warned local pawn and bike shops in the area to be on alert for anyone selling or bragging about the bikes.
A search on eBay found no results for any listing that could be the stolen bikes. A post on Craigslist, however, is asking for the left pinky of the thief responsible for the bike theft.
"Will pay $1,000.00 for the left pinky of the thief that took Lance's bike," the Craigslist ad reads. "No questions asked!"
It is, however, agains the law to sell body parts online.
