STOLEN in Brooklyn, NY
Bike theft 5/6/07 around 8:15pm in Brooklyn Heights (Montague St.)
White Fort fixed gear with silver lettering and black bullhorns.
Fort is a pretty uncommon frame to see around, so if someone suddenly appears with a bike that matches this description - it is probably mine.
Reply to this thread if you have any info. I offer a reward if you can help me recover the bike.
that sucks. i'll keep my eyes open. did you file a report with the police? how was it stolen? what are the components (as they might be flipped)? what size?
keep an eye on ebay/craigslist, you never know...
I will keep my eyes peeled ... I bike through that area multiple times daily.
Thanks for the support
I just ducked into Chipotle to get a burrito to go - so I got hit fast. Dumb of me to only bring along 1 lock but I wasn't gone for more than a few minutes. Came out and it was gone.
A Police report has been filed. Posted to Craigslist already for a lookout and will keep checking.
Surly hubs. Mavic cxp-33 in backwheel, aerohead in front.
sorry to hear that man, ill keep a look out around the phila craigslist. things tend to travel.
Stolen bike BUMP to the top. I hate Brooklyn bicycle thieves.
just out of curiosity, what kind of lock did you use?
really sorry to hear about your bike buddy, good luck getting it back!
All honesty, I didn't have my ulock with me and was just using a cable lock. Figured it'd keep things in place while I ran in/out for a burrito - wrong, wrong, wrong.
Proof-positive the baddies are still out there. Don't get lulled.
Sucks big time! Seems like a lot of stolen bikes in the city lately. Making me paranoid! Anyhow, do you have a pic you can post? Could help with people identifying your ride. Also, you should crosspost this in
Wow. That's pretty rotten. NYC is a bike thief's dream. I can't imagine living there thinking that my bike could be stolen at any time. Makes a person wonder what the best lock is.
