Hello all, I just wanted to share a sad story, and ask a question.
So my wife surprised me with a new mountain bike for Christmas. It wasn't anything super special, a dawes from bikesdirect, and I know some don't prefer their bikes, but it was my first mountain bike, and I was extremely excited. I get it the 22nd, and we have to go out of town the next day, so i put it in my shed, shut and lock the door, looking forward to riding it when I get home, today, Jan. 3. I go to my shed and its gone. I look everywhere. Finally filed a police report, and tomorrow I'm filing a claim with my renters insurance. It goes without saying how much this sucks.
The thing about it is though, they could have taken so many other things in my shed, another bike, my trainer, trailer, etc. Stuff worth another few hundred dollars. Also, I never got around to putting on the front disc brake, at the time I didn't have the correct tool, so its missing the front brake. Any ideas as to where to look? I've been checking Craigslist, but are there any other places that buy used bikes? (although its basically brand new) I'm going to contact the local bike shops tomorrow and ask if they've done any repairs on that model bike dealing with a front disc.
Any help would be appreciated.
