Are we talking front or rear wheel? Are we talking broad daylight? Do you lock your wheels or just your frame?
I shall keep my eyes open but this pisses me off. I continue to hope that DC remain relatively thief free in relation to NYC.
Sorry to hear this. Yeah, I would feel like there was a bullet with my name on it if I ever stole a part from someone else's bicycle. Try to get over this one as quickly as possible and maybe get at least a cable lock to deter theft. Or, a gun.
Rear wheel, thanks for the condolences. Shame on me, I only locked my frame. I thought that would be good enough in broad daylight. This happened in lower Dupont on 19th st. and M. Funny thing, there was a nice Bianchi Brava right next to mine.
I'll be the first to admit the idea of finding this wheel is laughable at best. Basically I got the Citybikes special. Who doesn't have a Surly Hub, Mavic rim, and Conti tire! But thank you for looking out.
Lesson learned, I will bring my bike in to the corporate garage. Maybe they'll let me use the corporate washroom too...
