The madness continues…of course it’s New York City after all. Here is the latest reports of stolen bikes to be on the look out for:

Corbin Keech had his bike stolen, 6/27.
My bike was stolen Monday night, in front of a friend’s apartment on West 75th and Columbus.
It is a black Trek 1200, with faded pink detailing. The frame is 59cm. The pedals were bought new, and were Clipless Shimano Spd’s. The rear Derailleur was a used replacement – an older Shimano XT. It is missing its front wheel, because the thief left it at the scene. On the front handlebars was an attachment base for a front light, and attached to the seatpost was another attachment base for a rear light. The gear shifters on the drop bar were recently repaired, and a white zip-tie is holding the mechanism in place.
Corbin made the tragic mistake of locking the front wheel only with a U-lock, forgetting to lock the frame. He woke up to a lonely wheel remaining.
On the brighter side, there is a new service out there to keep track of stolen bikes here in NYC. A few of the staffers at the bike shop, Bicycle Habitat, have revived there neighborhood watch site: bikewatchnyc.wordpress.com.
