    LOST/STOLEN BIKE! Red and White Strada, Gramercy Manhatan NYC

    I know this isn't a a sharing bike image.jpgimage.jpgpost but someone stole my bike near Baruch (Gramercy/Flatiron area) a few days ago (July 24th around noon). If anyone sees it and is kind enough to notify me, my number is 646-801-9004.

    It's a Strada bike, white frame, white seat, white wheels, black handles, and red rims. It's a small build, 49cm, fits around 5'3"-5'6", stand over height 30inches. There's also a lot of stickers on it (not shown in the picture), mostly white/black/red ones.

    Thank you so much!

    Bike stolen from SoCal Metrolink

    Yesterday,8/28/13, on Metrolink train 602 southbound someone stole a carbon Scattante w/Ultegra components off the bike car with a half dozen people (including the moron posting this) watching. Here is how it went down. I was talking to someone when I heard a noise, looked down to the other side of the car to see that a bike had fallen over. The guy who owned the bike was sitting next to it and went to pick it up when some other guy pulled the Scattante that was under it and walked right off the train. The guy I was talking to said "hey. I think that guy just stole that bike".

    Here is what we pieced together. A$$wipe knocked over the first bike-a Cannondale Evo-to see if the owner was near by. When that bikes owner revealed himself, the dirtbag went for the bike under it. This was all timed to coincide with the train pulling into the station (Laguna Niguel).

    One witness said the thief had boarded the train at Anaheim station and was asking him questions about his bike. He was also carrying a set of MTB handlebars he was trying to sell. The witness said the guy seemed shady, and it was this witness who noticed, too late, the bike being taken off the train as the doors closed.

    Anyone who has ridden the trains knows the protocol is that once those doors close and the train starts rolling, they don't stop for anything short of hitting something. The thief obviously knew this too since he timed it to be off the train just as the doors closed.

    I will post more details later after I get a chance to speak to the witness again to get a description of the thief, and get a better description of the bike from the victim.

    Watch Craigslist list for Ultegra parts, as parting bikes seems to be this Q!@#%#$'s MO. He dropped the MTB bars were he grabbed the bike.

    As much as you paid for that Beemer [Mercedies, Audi, Escalade], I'm surprised it didn't come equipped with turn signals.

    Stolen Bikes and Police Notices

    Dear cycling community,

    I have a favor to ask of you guys. I know a few threads pop up everywhere about stolen bikes and can you please find mine and be on the look out... I need your guys' help in finding my cousin's bike. The story behind the bike is that it was his dad's bike before he passed away during a triathlon. My cousin was going to do a triathlon on the same bike in honor of his father. Unfortunately over the past weekend, the bicycle was stolen from their garage in the San Pedro area.

    The bike is a yellow specialized allez with a Reynolds carbon fork. We are currently cruising through craigslist looking for it. If you find the bike or have a clue about its whereabouts, please message me.

    I appreciate all of you who took the time to read this. I know that recovering a stolen bike in California is like finding water in a desert but I'm hoping this might become a feel good story on KTLA.

    Thanks

    Stolen - surly cross-check, dark blue - nyc

    Hello,

    I am posting this thread asking for help locating my Surly Cross-Check. This was my daily commuter + touring bike.

    It was stolen from the street on Gramercy Park East in Manhattan between 20th and 21st streets around 1 PM on Thursday, 1-16-2014. The frame was locked to scaffolding with a U-lock and a cable lock threaded through the wheels. The Kryptonite Evolution U-lock was cut in half and left on the ground.

    Frame is dark blue, has a well-worn Brooks professional saddle, 700 x 42c continental cross-ride tires, Ultegra triple chain-ring in the front, egg-beater pedals, and Mavic a319 wheelset.

    Thanks for the help.

    Hi, sorry about your bike, just wondering if you can claim on the warranty since the lock was left behind.
    Giant doesn’t honour warranties.

    May the thief leap upon his ill-gotten bike only to find a moment too late that some other POS has stolen the seat
    Lead, follow or get out of the way
