    My Stolen Ride - Pinellas County FL

    Yet again another sob story...

    If any of you riding in Pinellas County see a blue Surly LHT rolling through the streets please let me know. I had a unique setup on this rig so here goes my shot in the dark at getting my bike back

    Surly LHT - Blue
    Shimano Tiagra - all the components

    Something else unique...the brakes have a travel agent on them attached to some direct pull brakes.

    Please help. Thanks.
    Geee that would be nice.

    O-Town,

    I've been riding some of the trails in Pinellas. Do you have any photos of the bike? A visual would help.

    Did you call the cops about this theft? <-- stoopid question, but i'll ask anyway.
    Legalize doping.
    Pedal, pedal, pedal, then pedal some more.

    I don't have a good picture of my bike but here is a similar looking one. Mine has the same color similar rack, triple chain ring, and black wraped drop bars

    It might help to put out a word on the local cycle club forum also. And always check the pawn shops...

    Thanks for the info...and thanks for keeping your eye out for this bike!

    Yes, I have checked the local pawn shops. And the local club said they would allow me to put a post in their news letter.

    Thanks Again

    I ride the 9th st-62nd ave-shore acres-38th ave loop and will keep an eye out....the moron who stole it probably will leave their garage door open one evening and someone will see it.

    I found my bike! It was in the back room of a pawn shop not too far from the house.

    They were trying to sell it on e-bay.

    Thanks to all of you who were looking around.
    Geee that would be nice.

    Awesome! Did you need to get the police involved to recover it?

    Chris...

    Yes the police had to verify that it was my bike through the SN. A detective and the pawnshop manager then signed a bunch of paperwork. I had to pay the pawned price to the shop and it was mine.
    Geee that would be nice.

    Damn, that's just wrong that you had to pay the pawn shop. I would have thought the cops would have just impounded it and then turned it over to you. How much did they criminals get for it.
