Singlespeed & Fixed Gear - STOLEN in Brooklyn, NY
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
Bike theft 5/6/07 around 8:15pm in Brooklyn Heights (Montague St.)
White Fort fixed gear with silver lettering and black bullhorns.
Fort is a pretty uncommon frame to see around, so if someone suddenly appears with a bike that matches this description - it is probably mine.
Reply to this thread if you have any info. I offer a reward if you can help me recover the bike.

that sucks. i'll keep my eyes open. did you file a report with the police? how was it stolen? what are the components (as they might be flipped)? what size?
keep an eye on ebay/craigslist, you never know...

I will keep my eyes peeled ... I bike through that area multiple times daily.
I just ducked into Chipotle to get a burrito to go - so I got hit fast. Dumb of me to only bring along 1 lock but I wasn't gone for more than a few minutes. Came out and it was gone.
A Police report has been filed. Posted to Craigslist already for a lookout and will keep checking.
Surly hubs. Mavic cxp-33 in backwheel, aerohead in front.

just out of curiosity, what kind of lock did you use?
really sorry to hear about your bike buddy, good luck getting it back!
All honesty, I didn't have my ulock with me and was just using a cable lock. Figured it'd keep things in place while I ran in/out for a burrito - wrong, wrong, wrong.
Proof-positive the baddies are still out there. Don't get lulled.

Sucks big time! Seems like a lot of stolen bikes in the city lately. Making me paranoid! Anyhow, do you have a pic you can post? Could help with people identifying your ride. Also, you should crosspost this in http://fixed.gr/nyc/

Wow. That's pretty rotten. NYC is a bike thief's dream. I can't imagine living there thinking that my bike could be stolen at any time. Makes a person wonder what the best lock is.
