I've got a wild story of what has started to shape my type of cycling. I'm in my freshman year, and about two months into the semester my Trek 7000 was stolen. I was bike less for about a month before I started looking into the single speed/ fixed gear option. It really made more sense for my type of riding since I had not been getting out on the trails much. I picked up an old panasonic frame and built a fixie. Now, the second semester has started and about two weeks in I was walking back to my dorm after a night out at the bars. I see my old Trek and sure enough it's not locked up. I then grab it and ride it back. Although it had been severely mistreated i was ecstatic to get it back. So now I have two bikes in my dorm room That's my story as of now.
Congratulations on getting your bike back!
Welcome to this site.....
You should have staked the bike out and waited for the new owner to come out. Than BLAMO! 2x4 to the side of the face.
