    Bike Stolen Today (Philly, Orange Fixed)

    DAAAAAAMMIT people were moving out of my apartment and left the door open. People must've grabbed the bike out of the apartment.

    It's an orange fixed gear bike, with Sugino RD's, home-made double toe straps (one is Silva), formula/alex R390 rims, Nitto bullhorns with black bar tape.

    Pleaaaaase buy it from whoever is selling it. Reward is given.

    The bike looks like this except it now has black bar tape and the toe straps are different. It also doesn't have the bandana anymore.

    What was your bike doing in someone elses apartment?

    In the very, very, very unlikely chance that someone on this forum actually sees it, why would they buy it? Why not just call the police?

    Only if they're selling for a good price.

    Seriously, though, sorry about your luck and I hope you get it back soon.

    I hope you get it back. Sounds like it has some emotional value, and history.

    The part called "Philadelphia".

    I've never had a bike stolen, but you can't give people an opportunity here, or you'll pay.

    BTW...sorry about the theft, dude. I'll keep an eye out in my travels.

    Looking at all the red cups on the ground, was there a Keg party involved?

    It just occurred to me that you might mention this to the messengers who congregate at the 18th and Walnut Streets entrance to Rittenhouse Square, ask them to keep their eyes open for your bike.
