So my super gave me a key to the boiler room because the landlord (who doesn't come around often) was complaining about my bike being locked up outside in front of my upper east side apt. I have pinhead skewers on the wheels, seat post, saddle, and fork and filled up my stem bolts and RD bolt with solder after it got vandalized for the handlebars a couple times. overall I don't sweat it if parts get stolen, because it was a build from mostly nashbar parts and no individual part is all that expensive. so i I went away for the weekend and decided since I'd be gone for 3 days, I should put it back in the boiler room. That was friday morning at 9am. I go down there this morning to get it out and go to work and bike is gone! Talked to my super, he says he went in there to do the recycling and doesn't recall if he saw the bike in there at the time or not. There are some very shady people that live in the basement apartment that are definately suspect but ultimately i'm out a really nice commuting bike.
I have renters insurance but they screwed me over once before so I'm dreading having to call them but I don't think I have much choice. Any new yorkers ever place a claim for a bike on renters insurance? got any advice for me?
