Just let me say that this whole event really got to me. Serious insomnia, rage and dislike for human kind...you name it...I'm so over the sh*$!

But...somewhat happy event on the way to maybe a happy ending to it all.

After a walk to the store with the doggies and Cathy, Lady ga ga (my #1 doggie) was in a rush to get back home. It was really uncanny actually with haste to get us back. Little B was nipping at Her and jumping on Her back all the way home but, Ga Ga was on a mission.

As I walked into the Lobby and took off their collars just as the elevator door opened. A miniature pinscher trotted out and of course little dog aggressive Ga Ga went after it but stopped and turned Her attention sniffing at the bicycle being pushed briskly out of the elevator which drew my attention to the bike. Immediately the geometry caught my analytic part of my brain and stopped me instantly...I looked and saw on the front fork "Klein"...then the seatpost...then the Krysirium front wheel...WTF!
I pounced before they got out the door and scuffled a bit while the tenant with the bike person popped off at me. Let me pause here and tell you that this tenant is a big overgrown ugly, ugly wretched Tranny with breasts that look like twin Goodyear blimps squashed together. This Sh*& of a person has been nothing but nasty to me since I took over the building and is actually currently involved in an eviction process for being an illegal tenant. BTW I've named it "BABY HUGHY". Baby Hughy started threatining me but I just laid into it and let it know what I felt. It ran across the street dodging traffic and ran off.
I grabbed ****** Bag with the bike and told Poser boy to sit tight I'm calling the cops. To shorten up this story let's just say the cops arrived too late and the knucklehead had split. They didn't seem to give a crap which is the usual attitude I get from cops but, I won't go there at this time... I'm besieged with crime in this building and they give me " 0 " help.
I got the second bike back and it's such a nice little victory and more ammunition to get "BABY HUGHY" evicted.

Dumb Ass crap on the bike....



My little Hero!!!



Dumb stem and HB tape



seat that attaches to "Nutsack" piercing



Why?



If nutsack ring doesn't work then this will catch the "boys"

Colorful fellows in your neck of the woods.

Bet the Taxi bike is still in the tenant apartment. Let's make it a 3 out of 3 recovery.

Wow, that bike got crapped up faster than... uhh... something that gets crapped up quickly. Duct tape top tube pad? The most uncomfortable saddle ever made worse by the most uncomfortable angle ever? And topping it all off with a Spinergy death wheel. Criminy.

Do you think the person who's been giving you trouble is the one that took your bikes to begin with? Sucks that the police aren't willing to help you out, but very happy you got most of the bike back!

Great work!

These two are not the brightest bulbs on the tree, so don't be suprised if the friend shows up again. Love is strange, life is strange. If he does, call the cops again.

Let me repeat... San Francisco Police Department " 0 " help! In response to comment about police interaction...

I know this city is full of cops...

I fully understand that but, they are cynical un-professional, arrogant, condescending and un-willing to uphold the law and serve the public in the way they were sworn to do. I've been dealing with this for a long, long time. I have serious crime issues in my building (s) and countless stories of cops who really just do not want to protect and serve the residents of my building. What I've had to do to prevent and prosecute crime here has been all on my own without any help from the City Police force which, is fine by me. Through social networking, and my friends I do a better job anyway.

I'm really happy beyond belief to get Cathy's bike back.

No more about the Police.

Ouch, that bike got some uglification big time.
It looks like a post-op tranny, but I guess that fits.
Gary Klein weeps for you.

I hope that restoring it aesthetically helps you and Cathy both re-bond with it soon.

Well.... seems to me you're looking at this all wrong. If the police won't do anything for you, chances are they won't do anything for the thief. Hmmm..... with little or no risk of legal reprisal, seems to me you can make their life very, very interesting, no? After all, you know where they live. All you have to do now is a little research into their schedule and habits, and apply a bit of creative thinking....

Not really if the man bear pig / tranny calls the cops on Pete, most likely Pete will end up feeling the wraith of SFPD and special interest city hall. The SFPD and those running this great city tend to protect those who should not be protected and for those who should be getting help ... well they tend to ignore ya and ask for more taxes.

The whole story is downright weird, but this alleged saddle is the whacko icing on the butthead cake. I mean, sh*t like that is what the emoticon was invented for. It looks like something Mr. Garrison on "South Park" would ride.

Nah, SFPD really don't give a poop unless it (a) lives in St Francis Woods or Pacific Heights, (b) is bleeding and (c) makes major contributions to the campaign of whichever mayor appointed the Chief. In a pinch on a slow news day, a nice middle-class tourist from at least three time zones away will sometimes, but not always, substitute for (a). 'Tis the same in most large cities in These Yew-nighted States, I fear.

Oh, you Italians. The Irish are more of a "take a few shots of whiskey and kick the **** out of 'em" kind of people. There might be a house burning and earth-salting party afterward, but there certainly ain't any subtlety involved.

I honestly can't figure out what's going on with that saddle. How is it even remotely usable? It looks like a "performance" saddle shape, but the rider is going to get a serious case of buckle-taint.

I mean, unless it was a regular performance saddle before it got a flea-market purse glued to it.

Revenge? Ideas O' Plenty from all you guys but I think the Eviction will be the best part when I wave bye bye to them.
As far as the seat...I pulled everything off the bike and realized some "Project Runway reject meets Bike Mechanic" had actually taken a pocket book apart and cut and glued it to a saddle. It was really a creepy experience seeing how some weirdo could just deface such a nice piece of machinery.

Glad you got your bike back. Would have been great if you took pics of the perps too. Hope you find the other remaining bike.

WTF did they do to your bike?!

OTOH if you don't have any plans for that saddle I think I might want to play a joke on someone I know...

gucci saddles with nutsack piercing attachments? Trannies? Duct tape top tube protectors? WTF? I was expecting an exciting story, but this is just too weird for me. You sure one of your buddies didn't do this as a practical joke?

Hey, Pete, I just had a brainstorm. Go over to C&V and sign up for the "Secret Santa" list. That saddle is just the ticket . . . as long as you're not my "Secret Santa," that is.

Welcome to a classic taxi thread. We've sorely missed this kind of discourse round these parts

Hey, he's proposed dumber, more outlandish stuff than this before . . . .
