just wanted to share a quick story....
A buddy of mine recently left his garage door open, then had his bike jacked. This was a bike that he rode the ****e out of so he was pretty sick about it....funny thing is he had a classic gitane road bike right next to it. This bike was a Marin comfort bike.
Anyway over a week goes by and he's mowin' the lawn, from a distance he can see a young kid peddeling a bike towards him with another friend of ours following close behind in his car.
Turns out out friend recognized the bike and because the kid was so small knew it wasn't his bike. So he stops the kid and asked where he got the bike. Kid says he found it. So our friend told him to peddle it to my buds house.
Long story alittle shorter my bud got his bike back and then drove the kid home and talked to his mother. Mother claimed kid found the bike in a vacant lot. So my friend let it slide.
Just goes to show that if you and others keep an eye out every once and awhile you get your stuff back.
