Stolen Bikes and Police Notices
This thread is to provide a central point for publicizing your stolen bikes. It's a closed thread, you will need to contact a staff member to get your item in, but it's free to all. If you don't have the minimum post count to send a PM, remember, there's always email, you can email me at tom(at)bikeforums(dot)net, or any of the staff at their username(at)bikeforums(dot)net.

We will post the location, year, and make/model of the bike and a picture for you. Hopefully, this will be the slowest growing thread in BF history. If you recover your bicycle, click the report post icon and tell us (the black triangle on the lower left of the post), so the staff can edit in that the bike was recovered.

I found a blue Nishiki Olympic, looks around late 80's, probably '87. I put an add on craigslist saying I found it. If you know the owner or know where else I could advertise then please tell me!

Stolen bike in San Jose
09 Cannondale Six Carbon 5 road bike, white, 50 cm, serial number UM47262, tires with distinct green sidewalls (Vittoria Open Pave'), red eggbeater pedals, WTB Rocket seat. Stolen from the second floor inside a gated complex. This is second time my bike got stolen, 08' Stumpie mtb was the first one about a year ago (car got broken in, same place, underground garage, caught on security camera, still no progress).

I know the perp's phone number and email. He may ditch the bike, I had few texts back and forth, it's him or his kids. If you happen to see the bike, please secure it and PM for a phone number.

Appreciate your help!

I'm really sorry to read this.

Best wishes for a successful retrieval.

Good luck on finding your stolen bicycle. Though I don't mean this in a mocking way, isn't leaving your $2000+ Trek Madone in front of a store kind of asking someone to steal it? I have a Trek also and would never leave it unattended for any amount of time anywhere.

mechBgon 08-18-11 09:56 AM

Here's hoping you get it back. BTW a Madone 5.1 calls for nothing less than a top-of-the-line lock if you're leaving it in public. I'd use a Kryptonite Fahgettaboudit chain or U-lock.

Any help is much appreciated and will put the smile back on my 3yr. old girl who loves riding to the park with me! THANK YOU!

[h=2]Stolen Miyata 1000 [/h]
I have the unfortunate news that my mint '86 Miyata 1000 was stolen in lower Manhattan yesterday, in front of the Blue Smoke restaurant on 255 Vesey Street. It's a 54cm model with a Brooks Honey saddle, an olive Carradice Barley saddle bag and brand new VO smooth aluminum fenders. Don't ask; I just don't even want to talk about it.

But if you see or hear of this bike, I'd sure appreciate it if you let me know. Thanks!
(The VO fenders pictured were just replaced with new, smooth aluminum VO fenders, and there was an olive Carradice Barley saddlebag attached):

Stolen Bikes and Police Notices
For now this one...until a mod points me in the right direction.

Recently we've had a string of bikes being stolen in our region (Columbus, GA) All high end road bikes or mountain bikes, in broad daylight, one even right in front of the LBS.

Today, sadly, just before the group ride (first of the year) my girlfiends 2012 Trek Madone 5.2 (black on black) with ultegra (also black) was stolen outside her office downtown while she was changing into her gear. She left the back on the back of the rack, secured with a lock (I put it on myself) and came out 10 minutes later and the bike was gone.

If you happen to see one posted in your region in the next few months, inbox me. Thanks.

Also stolen was a friends Cannondale Scalpel.

I'm setting up a sting bike with the spybike system. Hoping over the next week or two somebody nabs it and we can find out where they are going, in the mean time I'd suggest you add one, seems like it's worth the money vs. the pain of losing your bike.

edit: hello old friends, been awhile...been super busy =)

Good Luck. Sorry I can't help.

Sucks. Keep checking Craigslist in various locations near you.

dynaryder 06-30-13 03:18 PM

I'll keep an eye out for it.

You did do a police report,right? Try this site to look around different CL's:

If you have any friends that race cross,might want to have them keep an eye out. Also give Gwadzilla a heads up:
