A few days ago I decided to do a little maintenance on my bikes. I took them out to the driveway (which is in my alleyway) and U-Locked them and threw a chain around it, then I went in my shed to find a few tools and my chain cleaning stuff, went back and set the tools next to there. After, I went inside to get a water and take the laundry out of the dryer when I heard a knock on the door; 3 kids with a lawn mower asked if I needed my lawn mowed, which I replied "No thanks." About a minute later it dawned on me that they had no gas can and 3 kids to mow one yard with one lawn mower, so I walked to the back and my bikes were gone. I then sprint back in to the house to call the police and I hear another knock on the door! THEY HAD THE AUDACITY TO STEAL MY BIKES THEN KNOCK ON MY DOOR AND RIDE AWAY! Unfortunately the bikes haven't been recovered and I don't think they will.
This really, really sucks. I live in a nice neighborhood, but this is the third time I've had my bikes stolen, except this time they weren't wal-mart BSO's. Now I need to work my ass off to buy two more bikes while bumming rides of my parents and friends until I have transportation. I'm thinking about heading to wal-mart and buying a cheap roadmaster (YUCK) so I have transportation. I guess it's my fault because I must not have locked it all the way or something, but if I did, how did they break/get in to the lock so damn fast???
Have any of you had your bikes stolen?
