In the past 5 months, I’ve been mugged in front of my house in Petworth (and had backpack, new Macbook, iPod, etc. stolen); had my car broken into and had backpack, new Macbook, iPhone, stolen in Columbia Heights; and had my bike stolen off a street sign in Chinatown (by removing the street sign and lifting the bike+lock up and over). So, in short, I have my own personal crime wave. Saved money for several months and bought a new bike, and tonight it was stolen in front of the Rock Creek Church Road Market in Park View, just a few blocks from where I live. Was literally in the store for under 5 minutes, and it was gone when I emerged. I’m not holding my breath, but it is a really recognizable bike, and I’ve never seen another like it. It is my favorite color, turquoise, and is a Scott Sub 40.
