Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

I'm trying to gauge whether someone saw an opportunity for a free ride or if they cut through a lock to get it.

Naw, man.

I'm sorry for your loss. I instantly went to CL & ebay looking for it. I figured if someone just picked it up outside a store maybe they took it for a joyride & then dropped it somewhere.

But if they cut thru a lock, then they either will sell it whole, for parts, or tape it up & ride it.

I hope you get it back, but can you tell us the complete story?

Good luck getting it back. I had a very similar Panasonic like that back in the 80's, same colour and graphics. What year is that frame?

Wait... Was this locked up in chinatown last week? I saw this and thought to myself, that's too pretty of a bike to be locked up overnight in the street... We were riding to the banks. Saw the Sheriff Stars from a block away. It's gotta be the same bike. Beautiful...

I'll post it on the nyc boards for you...

Why did you lock it up overnight? And why weren't the wheels locked? When I saw it, it was locked to the top tube to a sign post along a busy street...

Not trying to rub it in, just lock it up better when you get it back.

whenever i come across a really nice bike locked up, i really want to admire it but then i think to myself maybe the owner is watching me thinking i'm up to no good.
