    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.

    Thanks.

    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.

    Thanks again.

    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 http://fixed.gr/nyc/

    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.

    Armstrong. The man without integrity, no care for the sport, and no problem with testing positive for EPO and making donations to cover it up.
