Alright- this is ridiculous. Either that or inevitable. Three bikes stolen from behind my house...including my fixie which I just installed a new bottom bracket and crank set on...gotta find where I put the serial number if I can.
Either way- Its a blue/grey SE bicycle...plain...purple deep v track wheels, iro cranks, tan handlebar tape, upside down bullhorn bars...I dunno- if you see it...I dunno. 10 points. More if you can get it back for me!
Living by vermont/beverly, shady. Unlocked is lazy.
Shit, this is terrible. Good luck finding your bikes.

My friend from work lives near there. She had multiple bikes stolen from her backyard even when they were locked up. That area is the new NYC

Put a trip-wire(fishing line connected to loud bell) on the rig and axe-hammer the offending heathen to death.

MAn, I think a new lock would have been a better investment thatn that BB.
Sorry that it happened. OH WAIT, NOT SORRY AT ALL. You must of had no money after all those upgrades to get a lock to protect your investment.
HA HA HA HA
If I find your bike I will sell it back to you for the price of a good lock.
NO ONE SHOULD EVER FEEL BAD FOR A BIKE THAT IS STOLEN WHEN THERE IS NO LOCK INVOLVED!!!!!!

wow really? I can't imagine you being a bigger douche- I realize it was naive to leave the bikes unlocked, but we have neighbors who live behind us, and there's a gate to the house. I guess I didn't realize how big of balls some thieves have. They were safe there for near on a year...so you know, you get lazy. Either way, I had hoped there was more understanding in the community and fewer people like you. I guess you're just more active on message boards than genuine bikers are.

although, I will say, to their credit- the thieves left a shitty paint speckled mountain bike in return for our unguarded shit. Sweet.
03.1.09 - 12:33 pm
That mountain bike would probably make a good polo bike.

I live at 5th and Berendo, the population of shady looking fixie/single riders is on the rise. I often see them bookin it from curb to street to curb on Vermont.....maybe they'll crash themselves outa the fad.
My friend had his front quick release skewer removed while locked in front of my building; I guess the thief didn't realize the wheel was locked to the frame 'cause he just left everything in the grass, no harm done.

sorry to hear about your bike!
03.1.09 - 2:09 pm
Sorry to hear this!
Unfortunately, thieves can and will eventually take advantage of easy pickings no matter where one lives. I grew up in fancypants Northern Virginia and my brother and I had our (unlocked) bikes stolen out of our (open) garage in the middle of the day once.
It may seem paranoid, but if you have to keep your bikes anywhere other than inside your apartment/house, they should be locked. And not just with a cable.
We can't say this enough.

I appreciate all the kind words- but yeah- bike inside from now on for sure...thank you Jesus.

This sounded like a perfect target for the thieves. Houses in the back so the guy, or girl going back there had a ready excuse to be back there. If the person was slick, they could have just said they were looking for a lost kitty or something too. Even if they weren't, whacha gona do? Call the cops cause someone is looking for a cat?

Well, if they snuck in and tried to be quiet about it, that deserves nothing more than a shovel across the back of the head and bound/gagged to a chair.
03.2.09 - 12:08 pm
Adam, there's house in the back of the guy's place. WTF, you going to nail someone with a shovel if they're quiet?
This sounds like a dark comedy.
03.2.09 - 12:22 pm
Ya he'll smack em, cuz the REAL tenents are LOUD AS FUCK!! lol
03.2.09 - 12:24 pm
^^^lulz. It does.
Adam beats a man to death with a shovel, suspecting him to be a bike thief, only to find that the bike is already missing. He then realizes his mistake and must dispose of the body of his neighbors unsuspecting visitor... and, of course, hilarity ensues.

"dark comedy" because hes black? are you a racist, user1?
03.2.09 - 12:31 pm
"WAIT, if you're here and you're there, then that means... Oh boy!!!" classic
03.2.09 - 12:33 pm
succcks dude. i woke up last night dreaming my bike was stolen and went outside to bring it in the house. better safer than sorrier.
03.2.09 - 12:39 pm
I said dark comedy cause he's into the sickness, decadence, depressive gothic hard rock of Finnish death metal. It wasn't because of the color of his skin.
03.2.09 - 12:55 pm
In the case of that happening, I'll just pin the blame on the meter-reader!!!
03.2.09 - 1:30 pm
That's my neighborhood... I live on beverly & kenmore and there is no way in hell I would leave my shit outside. Sorry to hear about your loss though, that is beyond sucking :o(
