Two people wanted me to post this about their bikes being stolen:
Thought you might be able to post about my bike…
Had my bike stolen last night (October 1st) on Havemeyer between Grand and Metro. Wish I had a picture of it, but I don’t. It’s a mountain bike with a slick on the back wheel and nobby up front. The color is basically rust (I stripped all the paint and did a thin clear coat so it would rust up the surface. Thought it would make the bike less of a target…) I just put a couple hundred bucks into new tires, rear hub, etc.
Well, no expectations on finding it, I just wanted to give everyone a heads up that bikes aren’t as safe as you may think; Krypto locks and chains notwithstanding.
If you do spot the bike somewhere in the hood (I live three blocks there) please let me know – email@example.com

Vintage red foldie bike with a vintage orange, yellow and green flowered banana seat, rear view mirror, great bell and flashing red light McGyvered onto its rear bike rack. 8 ball tire caps. Rear pedal breaks and one handlebar break. A few colored bungee cords on the rack, too.
Her name was Delores.
I am devastated.
Please call if you see her!
