So this morning, as usual, I locked up my bike (not the rear wheel), went in and taught my classes at Georgetown Law School, and when I went to leave, my Campy Vento G3 rear wheel was stolen! This was right outside of the security office where the officers sit! So of course, I was irate and upset- I just spent the entire morning dealing with the police and all, but I also found out they won't give me the tapes of the wheel getting stolen from the security cameras so I can try to identify the perp. And they won't give me a still shot of it either. All they said they would do is review the tapes and let me know what they saw. As far as follow through, they don't have any. As far as reimbursement, they said I have no recourse. So now, I have to spend money I don't have to get a new wheel, because I seriously doubt they're going to help me.
If I see the guy who stole it, though, I'm going to take my u-lock and bust his teeth and take the ****ing wheel back. I'm seriously pissed off.
Anyone know of some kind of second hand shops or swap meets or whatever in the DC area so I can keep my eyes peeled out for it?
