You cannot steal something that has been abandoned! Take a look at the definition of the word. Abandoned property does not retain its ownership.

However, this bike is deemed not abandoned. I very...

If something has actually been abandoned (and there are legal, as well as commonsense, ways of determining that) it is fair game. The hinge, for me, is that determination. Honestly, at some point it...

Vin, I left a note on the bike. If the owner does not see the note for some amount of time and either a cop or the owner comes out, magically (cops don't hang out in alleys behind buildings), the day...

Tom you're looking at a super-cult bike, in the absolute height of the buying season.

You're probably right. I took the first step of leaving a note and we'll see if that gets any traction in the next week or so. If the majority of the people here had said 'it's always wrong to...

I wouldn't go that far - NYC cops like busting people's balls as much as a suburban cop, but they don't have as much of their day devoted to it. I can't imagine them coming very quickly, were someone...

This isn't a U Lock, it's their chain lock (with a normal key, not an O key). Also, those u-locks susceptible to the pen have been recalled. There shouldn't be many left on the street.

That's a big part of the debate for me. The fact that there is a perfectly good lock and chain on it suggests that it was, at one time, a well thought of possession. Now in hipster land NY, a lot of...
