I came home the other day to find my 2013 Kona Paddy Wagon had been stripped of most of it's parts. The only thing left was the frame, crank and pedals. The bike was locked up with a u-lock and cable.
I'm waiting on the estimate from the bike shop on what it would take to make it a bike again, and the feeling I'm getting is that it'll be more affordable/practical to just buy a new bike, and try selling the bike frame. It's a shame, since I really like the look of the clear coat on the 2013 frame. I feel like if I get a new bike, I'll be letting the person that took everything but the frame win.
Thoughts on replacing the missing parts with new/upgraded parts, or getting a new bike entirely?
I'm getting married in a couple of months, so the timing couldn't have been worse.
