STOP THE MADNESS,
Here are the latest stolen bikes in NYC, (that I know about)
A friend of mine who helped out with the video production of Rumble thru da Bronx had his old skool 10 speed nabbed:
“My Lotus Excelle was stolen from 124th and Broadway on Aug. 30 in the early afternoon. It had shitty foam grips that were stripped in the drops, cross levers, forte Kevlar tires. a red frog light up front, some no-name brand of red blinky in the back, and a newly installed (yesterday) black sunlite rear rack. The frame is tange 900 double butted cro mo. I’ve attached a couple of pictures (sadly they were the best I had). Anyone with info can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks.
Description – Silver frame (non-lugged-newer road bike (not track)), black stem, fork, and seat post. Dura Ace headset, 105 crank, black Wellgo pedals, plastic toeclips, double leather straps, celeste (aqua green) Selle San Marco seat, bull horn handlebars with a front brake, and a silver front wheel with a black rear wheel.

A Daily News reporter who recently wrote an article on biking in NYC had her Surly Steam roller lifted off a pole with no sign at the top. Yes they still steal bikes this way.
It is a Surly Steamroller…painted blue and yellow with stickers all over it…..in front of Ave A and E. 12 Street….I was working the story of the homicide of the Forbidden City bouncer Sunday afternoon….they took the bike off a pole, with the U-lock attached.
How do they do that?

Fuji Track bike
It was stolen yesterday between 11am and 9:30pm. I parked it at a public bike locking station on 12th and 6th ave as I usually park there when I use the PATH to head into Jersey for client work and/or MMA practice. When I got back that night my bike was gone with no sign of my Onguard lock and chain.
The bike is 52cm and therefore roughly 28in stand over. It is a fixed gear, and has a front hand break. I am more than willing to give a $100 reward to anyone who has information that will help me recover it.
Thank you for your help for my missing Bike.

80’s Purple Zebra Stolen Wednesday 8/12 on North 12th Street btw Bedford and Berry in Williamsburg. Has a teal Bianchi seat which should be a dead giveaway because it is set really low and cannot be adjusted as it is fused to the frame. This thing stands out for surely. It is my girlfriend’s bike and she is bummed.
