Have You Seen My Stolen Bike? Vol. 7

“Dear PoPville,

My bike was stolen on Monday, November 21 near the corner of Nebraska and Massachussetts Ave. It’s a Trek 4300 mountain bike, Women’s Specific Design. It’s silver gray with thorn-like details. There are water bottle and tire pump holders, spoke lights, head and tail lights, and odometer wiring. It was locked with a 5/8″ thick Kryptonite flex combo cable and a silver gray Trek helmet.”

If you think you may have seen the bike please email [email protected] or leave a tip in the comments.

  • i appreciate this new feature on PoP, even though it always makes me sad…

    also, i will repeat my time-tested (and so far reliable) method — use TWO LOCKS and lock near a nice bike that is single locked. while i don’t wish for anyone’s bike to get stolen it is that much worse when it is mine.

    i know the extra weight sucks, but it does help deter theft to have a pair of locks (ideally each will secure a wheel and lock to a stationary object).

  • why not three locks? four locks! FIVE LOCKS!!

  • My u-lock came with some clippy thingy that attaches to your frame and holds your u-lock while you are riding. Not the prettiest thing, but it’s very useful if you don’t want to carry a big lock/chain in your purse.

  • 2 different style locks is the key. They take 2 different tools and the thieves usually only carry one tool.

  • Would it be illegal to store razor blades within your bike seat cushion when you’re not riding it?

    Good idea until you forget to remove said blade before you go riding.
