A Trek Equinox TTX time trial bike stolen from Lance Armstrong’s Mellow Johnny’s Bike Shop in Austin, Texas has been recovered and returned to the shop after it was purchased at a flea market in Guanajuato, Mexico in January. The bike, which belongs to Trek and was used by Ryan Baumann of the Trek-Livestrong U23 team last season, was stolen back in November after thieves smashed through a glass door in the back of Mellow Johnny’s. The shop acts as the service course for the Trek-Livestrong team.

A cyclist purchased the bike at the flea market and took it to a local Trek representative, who identified the bike and made arrangements to have it returned. The bike, which had no wheels when it was purchased from the flea market, appears to be in fairly good condition with no damage to the frame or components, according to store manager Ted Arnold. No word on the future of the bike; Baumann is racing for the Bahati Foundation Pro Cycling Team this season.

So… What does the guy who bought it get? How much did he pay? Is he getting a reward or something?
