    I got my stolen bike back!

    Subject was: Surly Cross Check stolen in Maplewood, NJ, Nov 7, 2011

    (Edit: I got the bike back tonight. See my post from Feb 13.)

    STOLEN BIKE

    Stolen from my home in Maplewood at around 10:30pm on November 7, 2011.

    CASH REWARD if you bring it back to me. CASH REWARD if you lead me to the person who had it or has it. This bike is not only valuable to me, it has a lot of sentimental value. I put a lot of handiwork into building it.

    Brand: Surly

    Model: Cross Check

    Color: Brown, though it may be painted by the thief

    Distinctive features: Unusually shaped mustache handlebars. Drum brake hubs (i.e. the brakes are in the wheel hubs; they donít grab the rims). Silver fenders.

    I'm sorry to hear that. I'm in Hillside, so I'll definitely ride out that way in the next couple of days and keep my eyes peeled. When I get into Maplewood I usually ride around the Vauxhall area. Good luck, I hope it is returned/found soon.

    Thanks, Jared. Of course, it might be a different color or changed in any other way.

    A nice young college student brought it back to me tonight. He bought it at a garage sale, and then his aunt showed him the flyer I had distributed. I paid him what he paid for it (which was a lot but totally worth it), plus I gave him a high-end BMX bike I had, all fixed up.

    It looks like the bike hasn't been ridden. There's not a scratch on it. It just has a flat tire. I think I know how to fix that.
