    Lost or Stolen Bike in Toronto?

    My first post here, if this is not allowed, I'm sorry and please delete this.

    I was looking on craigslist and found a post about found bike, thought maybe somebody here had one stolen.

    Sounds like some guy just locked his wheel to his frame, comes out of the store and his ride is gone!!

    Seriously... I've done this when there's nothing to lock the bike to and I'm only in the store for a few minutes. At least their heart is in the right place, I guess.

    That or they're trying to absolve themselves of the guilt they feel for just picking it up and taking it. I don't know how I could justify doing that. Unless he had seen the bike in the middle of the sidewalk, on its side, and knew it had been there for a long time I just don't see how you could assume it was stolen and wasn't just a bike courier or someone else who had popped in somewhere and was coming back shortly.
