it really sucks that you go out to give your free time and some a-hole decides to make your day miserable.

Awww I'm sorry, Trackman. Crossing fingers hoping it comes home.

Don't forget to alert LBSs and Pawn shops. Put up a Wanted ad in CL for a em that size....

Tom can spank me if he disagrees, but I suggest cross-posting this in C&V.

Hope your bike turns up real soon.

I'll bring the rope if you supply the tree, once the thief is caught.

*Update on fixed gear thefts in D.C.

It seems a pattern is emerging, at least as far as fixed gear thefts :
Last Thursday ANOTHER track bike was stolen right around the corner
from where mine was stolen at right about the same tyme.
A courier was tagged. Yes we both had locked up so my guess is
a van with some pretty hefty bolt cutters.
BASTARDS
Guess you know where I will be this Thursday.
Think they will bite?[IMG][/IMG]

Dang - wishing you luck in recovering it. Plaster your area with signs and online alerts. Hopefully no one will buy it - or at least contact you if they see it.

1 reporting the theft
2 wanting to buy

You should lock up another bike there and hide and watch. You should also alert pawn shops and other places that buys stuff.

sounds a bit dangerous - but this just worked for Dan! I'd try it but carry a flamethrower and grenades just in case.

That's an excellent idea Bike shops too - can people trade in used bikes? If they can, that one would be desirable, obviously.

I bet most of the bikes that are stolen in DC are trucked up to Baltimore, Philly or NYC, then sold craigslist, and vice versa for ones stolen in NYC etc.
