01.1.09 - 8:34 am
Dey not only stole IJunes Bike, Dey crossed the line!
01.1.09 - 9:22 am
I feel for you that sucks where did this happen what area are we to be looking infor the bike
01.1.09 - 9:29 am
OH FUCK NO!
I WILL KEEP MY EYES PEELED! i have the same one so you know i will know right away
i had mine locked with a ulock. did you not lock yours??
i'm so sad =(
01.1.09 - 9:37 am
Fuck itunes! Im so sorry man. I dont have a spare bike but i have lots of parts. I want to see you rolling asap! Was your bike locked?
01.1.09 - 10:26 am
Sounds like it wasn't locked up. Someone would have noticed a lock being broken!
I have left my bike unlocked at a few of Hal's shindigs and it's been fine (given, they were probably smaller parties). I bet it was all the craziness from NYE and stuff.
From now on I'm at least going to lock my bike to someone else's even when we are all at Hal's. Plus for a while I'll probably be doing "tug tests" as bentstrider mentioned to prevent what happened to Larsen (loosened stem). Eek-city
Damn, seems like a lot of bullshit has been happening in Santa Monica- kinda disappointing to hear about! Here's hoping it's not a regular thing and can be attributed to the big new years eve party.
Ride safe & ride on!
01.1.09 - 10:32 am
WHAT THE FUCK. im glad all that happened to me was some sabotage. i wonder if i would still have my bike if i hadnt left so early, it was between the two tallbikes.
01.1.09 - 11:53 am
You can use my Schwinn Continental until you find something permanent. You might remember I rode it on the lunch ride to the Farmer's Market (remember that stealth invisible camry in front of you?). Since then, I fixed the squeak in the brakes. Its heavy as sin, but it rides nice.
01.1.09 - 12:03 pm
ohh that'd be sweet. yeah it'll just take me a month or two to save up enough to get a new bike. if you would loan it to me that'/d be awesome please email me at whatsname (at) ijunes (dotcom)
01.1.09 - 12:06 pm
I'm kind of betting it was the same people who fucked with Larsen's.
Thinking about it, the crowd was pretty upscale, minus us bike people. so I don't know who it could ahve been.
01.1.09 - 12:27 pm
our bikes were on each other out front too, easy access. i have a feeling they are unrelated though. feels like someone wanted to fuck with me while later someone else saw an opportunity to get a free bike.
01.1.09 - 12:30 pm
My e-mail to that address bounced. What is the part before the @?
01.1.09 - 1:01 pm
what the fuck what the fuck. i still cant believe this happened, you have such an uncommon looking bike too! you better be on CL non stop.
01.1.09 - 2:32 pm
yes it's very easy to spot this bike- i hope we find it
i had my blue one there last night but i locked it to deborawr's bike- i'm glad i did
there were a lot of bums walking in and out
god so depressing
01.1.09 - 2:36 pm
So sad to hear this Junu. More luck to you this coming year. I'll keep my eyes peeled on the west end.
01.1.09 - 2:40 pm
I WAS ALL OVER THE PLACE, AND I MISSED THAT ONE FUCKING THING, HOW EVER, I WAS TOLD THAT IT WAS A AFRICAN / AMERICAN THAT TOOK OFF WITH ITUNES BIKE.
IT SEEMS THAT ALL THE BAD SHIT IS MOVING OUT OF ECHO PARK / SILVERLAKE AREA, AND OVER TO THE WEST SIDE, WATCH OUT WEST SIDERS.
( THE WEST SIDE STILL SUCKS. ;)
01.1.09 - 2:49 pm
bring out the boppers... way too much shit going on...
it's BOPPING TIME!!!
01.1.09 - 4:38 pm
I searched high and low, but couldn't locate that beast.
And my bike was sitting in front of the BOX, all by its lonesome, unlocked and in plain view.
01.1.09 - 5:49 pm
shitballs. What was that thief thinking, not taking the HUMMER bike instead?!?
01.1.09 - 5:53 pm
LOL, THATS FUCKED TALKING ABOUT HIS BIKE LIKE THAT, SHIT.
01.1.09 - 6:30 pm
They probably looked at my bike and wondered, "how many burritos must one eat to power that thing?"
01.1.09 - 6:37 pm
I'll keep an eye out for that bike. I sometimes go to local swapmeets looking for those illusive parts to complete some of my vintage bikes. Also, because I've been bike jacked 3 TIMES! (Skyline trail- Whittier, The Dam trails near Legg Lake, El Monte, & 3rd/Walnut LBC). And because I sill hold out hope that I'll find some of my bikes scattered into parts. Here's what i know from talking to swapmeet venders, many stolen bikes go south of the border, where bike culture is really taking off. There were a lot of locals riding $1000+ bikes in the last Rosarito-Ensenada bike ride. Or, they far north to be sold at other swap meets, and vice versa. Check other cities Craigslists...
01.1.09 - 7:45 pm
I'm so sad for you. I'm glad someone has a bike to lend you. I was nervous about all those bikes laying around when I got there. Definitely a lesson to err on the side of caution and lock up your bikes even when you don't think you need to. I hope the bastard that stole your bike suffers a whole lot in this new year. What kind of douchebag would start off the year being a scummy theif?!?! Aaagh.. Madness. Fuckers. They'll get theirs. Karma.
01.1.09 - 8:05 pm
whatshisname @ ijunes dotcom
thank you for your support, especially from the community. if i didnt have you guys, losing my bike would be that much more painful. i'm glad people are willing to loan me whatever they can.
i should be able to come up with the money for the bike in about 2 months, which is the duration i'm looking for a loaner bike from.
its sad, but like everyone else its already happened, chances of recovery are minimal, i'm going to contact a couple of shops that do painting to make sure they check with any steel triple triangle frames coming in.
and keep your eyes peeled, don't pursue the suspect alone. follow him if you can, call up a posse, and then murder him.
01.1.09 - 8:11 pm
on an additional note, i know bicycles are expensive, so i am willing to give you up to a $500 security deposit check because that is the most i'm willing to spend on a bike.
if something were to happen to the bike i was borrowing i would stop riding anyways so i think that is fair.
01.1.09 - 8:27 pm
LOCK UP THAT LONER BIKE, EVERY TIME YOU LEAVE IT, NIXONTWIN's ONE GOOD RIDAZZ.
01.1.09 - 9:10 pm
Oh Junebug. I'm so sorry to hear that. I know how much you loved your bicycle. I'm glad that you have a loaner. And its terrible that people can just fuck with our community like that.
Hope to see you soon. I send much love and positive energy.
01.1.09 - 10:09 pm
I've got a good lock that goes with the bike, so if you tell me you'll use the lock, don't worry about the deposit.
01.2.09 - 1:38 am
Sucks man sorry to hear.
Cable lock I'm guessing?
01.2.09 - 12:14 pm
wait, junu, you left ur bike outside with no lock?
01.2.09 - 3:06 pm
no ok i was too fucked up i did lock it.
i had to have locked it because i dont have my ulock neither.
01.2.09 - 3:07 pm
seriously? hmm i had a ulock on mine too. i guess i got lucky.
just went on a ride around the westside. no sight of your bike just yet...but i'm keeping my fingers crossed.
01.2.09 - 5:31 pm
Bike thieves suck. I feel for you, Junu (even though I don't know you outside the internet). I was going to say something like "there's nothing worse than walking back to where you parked your bike and finding it gone," but then I realized that there are actually a whole lot of things worse than having a bike stolen. You'll get a new bike soon, and you'll be back on the streets, as happy as before.
Still, bike thieves suck. Off with their heads!
01.2.09 - 5:35 pm
no right now for me that bike is/has been everything, and to find it gone is really heart drenching.
i haven't felt like this since i broke up with my first girlfriend. i'm very saddened. if i was given a choice between losing a testicle and keeping my bike forever, or having my bike taken, i seriously might consider giving one of my babies up.
you only really need one right?
01.2.09 - 5:43 pm
Just when i thought u were all douche bags...
NixonTwin ur one dope bro for hooking up juno with a loner bike..+100 and another +100 for that quote in ur profile... whoo hooo
01.2.09 - 5:48 pm
Anything on your bike yet? How's it going on getting a replacement to your stolen bike?
01.2.09 - 7:15 pm
"Just when i thought u were all douche bags..."
Ah come on man, you can't take these forums that seriously! Cheer up and ride your bike! It's a new year, time to start fresh
01.2.09 - 8:25 pm
to think we were talking about starting a road racing team that night too.
01.2.09 - 9:34 pm
oyy not having a bike is like a badddd shroom trip
and its saturday morning and wtf there are no cartoons.
i almost forgot its saturday. doesnt matter cause im staying in today. and tomorrow.
01.3.09 - 10:58 am
I say us ridazz should
Put on a "cheer up"
Ride for ijunes and anyone else who've lost their beloved bike's recently?....
we'll put an end to all the
Bike theifs out there and as well have some fun!!!
01.3.09 - 12:02 pm
oh and btw nixon's bike is too big standing at 58 cm. so any other loaner bike offers please...
01.3.09 - 12:13 pm
there is a decent chance that the person who took ijunes bike wasn't even at the party.
his bike was on top of a pile and not locked and very close to the street. honestly it could have been anyone.
pretty bikes need locks!
they are a hot commodity now, you've seen how much people think they can resell crappy bikes for online, they know they can get more for a nice one.
everyone needs to get a small ulock or a cable lock just for rides.
or make sure someone in your group has a lock you can use.
it's kinda like wearing a helmet, once you have an accident, you tend to wear one later... once you lose your bike,( we hope) you'll carry a lock.
01.4.09 - 12:01 pm
AND ONCE YOU CARRY A LOCK, THEN GET YOUR BIKE STOLEN, THEN YOU START TO USE IT ON YOUR NEXT BIKE.
01.5.09 - 12:39 am
hey junu, come by tonight and we'll go through scrap pile in the yard and see if we can put a bike together. At the very least I'm sure I have a frame that will work and i still have those wheels I bought off you, so you can have those back if you want.
01.5.09 - 7:34 am
sweet thx was just going to do that. i get off work around 6:30, and i'll stop by around 7 or so. i'll call you
01.5.09 - 8:08 am

04.13.09 - 5:25 pm
