bike stolen in New Orleans

my bike got stolen.


it's a yellow mountain bike frame- an older model Voodoo Hoodoo. http://img183.imageshack.us/img183/5...ainbike0zj.jpg
i let a friend borrow it while we were volunteering in the 9th ward and somebody cut the lock after it had been sitting for two weeks.
i love this bike.
i miss it immensely.
it had some stickers on it, it was rigged up as a single-speed, it had a rigid fork, and it had flat pedals on it.
(i wouldn't be surprised to find out that the frame's been stripped and built up completely differently, though.)
i asked around about it when i was there for the fourth of july, and i'm pretty sure that it's still around the city.
if anyone's in N.O., please keep an eye out for it.
and if anybody in N.O. has spare time to help me with posting signs, please please please PM me!!
thanks.

Sorry to hear that.

Two weeks is a long time to leave a bike you love locked unattended. Best of luck getting it back.

Bikes get stolen. We've had 8 of our friends have their bikes stolen, only 1 got his back (and I found it ). Doubt you'll get this one back dude.

Sorry to hear that, I really hate bike thieves. I'd be up for helping you put up signs but I'm a bit far away for that. :/

Yep. That's where I'm from. Nature was trying to tell us something when she rinsed it clean. That place is a DUMP

That's what I kinda thought when I just read the title of this thread. Leaving a bike locked unattended in a city like that for days is risky, but weeks? Nothing personal, but it sounds you unintentually asked for it to get stolen. Good luck on your search
