Pittsburgh: Stolen/Abandoned Road Bike???

Hey--I posted the same ad on CraigsList. Please check it out if you're in Pittsburgh.

There is what appears to be an abandoned blue road bike in the tall grass outside the Amtrack Station by Penn Ave (?) Downtown...

Can't tell the make, but it looks like a nice machine...QR on rear wheel, no seatpost or saddle. I dunno...maybe it belongs to someone, but it did no appear to be locked, chained, etc.

If I am right and you lost your bike, please check it out. It's a large blue frame...

There is also a bike chained to one one the small bridges just South of the Brothers Grime entrance but South of the Robinson Town Center entrance. It seems to have been there for a couple of months now. What's with people leaving their bikes?

They must be missing on some rain days because there is enough rust on it.
