Bike Stolen, Vancouver, Yaletown

Sad to post, my commuter of 11yrs, Trek 7.3FX stolen yesterday in Yaletown, Vancouver, in a 2 hr window while I was at dinner. Lock, helmet, bike all gone, with no evidence. I was hoping to at least find a broken lock/cable to confirm the sad news, but couldn't find any evidence.
Just wanted to post it here.

Reported it stolen with VPD, nothing else to be done. Checking craigslist frequently and dream of getting it back...
Sigh

HAve you checked pawn shops? Mine got stolen a couple weeks ago, and I dont see it popping up on craigslist. Doubt these thieves end up riding the bikes, so I was thinking pawn shops are their best bet for unloading the bikes.

Social media is how many bikes are recovered in PDX, FB, twitter and instagram. Stolenbikeregistry may be able to help get you going on those, canvas all local bike shops and ask them for help too. Homeowners or renters insurance may cover it as well. From now on, no cable locks without at least one u-lock.
