I dont know if this is the right place but in need a place to rant if not please relocate it to the right spot. My bike got stolen tonight, they clipped my New York Kryptonite.
I parked it out side of my school in downtown Vancouver on homer and pender at 6:45pm and went to the bar to watch UFC 100 with some of my classmates. After a few beers and some good fights i walked back to campus to see my bike not at the rack and my locks on the ground. I called 911, they gave me the contact info to the non emergency police number. I informed her the bike was worth about 1700 cad not knowing what the larceny laws are up here. In a lot of states 1000 and up woth of property is grand larceny and subsequently a felony and in my eyes THIS WAS A F***ING EMERGENCY. My friends took the number down on their phones, I hung up and dialed the number into mine. I was put on hold and turned speaker phone on so i didnt have to hold my phone to my ear if it was going to be half an hour. At that point i couldn't hold it any more and i burst out "F***, F***, F***, F*** THEM THOSE BALL LESS CO-" "Hello, sir? "-CK SUCKERS!!! Oh, I'm sorry... my bike was stolen." Then I proceeded to give her the details and found out no one was coming to take prints. I told her that the bike was worth 1700 about three times, but nothing came of that. I got my case number asked her a few questions about what happened next and hung up. Scrounged the only pictures of the bike i had and posted on craigs list http://vancouver.craigslist.ca/com/1265604424.html , then printed out a list of all the pawn shops in the area that i will have to go to this week to check and see if its there. I was still very much stewing in bad intentions, so i wandered out down east Hastings to see if any one had traded it for some crack or was riding it. No Luck. So here i am, this was my first road bike. I don't have money for another one and just put 700 bucks in to new front wheel, rear and front derailleur, cassette, chain, and tires because i was planing on going for a three day bike trip on vancouver island on my next school break, since I'm moving back to the states when I graduate in October. I fell like **** but thanks for the space to vent I feel a little better and if anyone is in the Vancouver area there is a reward for getting me enough info to get this back. Please keep you eye out for it.
This quote from pulp fiction fits how im feeling right now.
"Vincent: Boy, I wish I could've caught him doing it. I'd have given anything to catch that ******* doing it. It'd been worth him doing it just so I could've caught him doing it."
My guess is they put a blanket over the top and went to town with power tools.
