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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
