Just in time for the Holiday Season comes this heartwarming story. Former NBA center and 7’6″ giant Shawn Bradley was distraught when he discovered that his custom-built $10,000 bike was stolen from his home in Utah. Bradley took up biking after his weight ballooned after his retirement and has become an avid biker, even riding up to 100 miles at a time. Interestingly enough, nothing else was stolen from his property despite the fact that the bike is nearly impossible for a normal-sized person to ride.

At first, I naturally suspected that Greg Ostertag was involved, but Joshua Carter was arrested after the bike turned up during a random visit from his probation officer.

Sure you can drink gallons of wine at a time, but if you’re not a movie star like Gheorghe Muresan, you have to spend like ten times the normal price for a bike. You already can’t fit into a car or a bed. I’m just glad things worked out. Otherwise, the big man would’ve had to ride around on one of these:
