Dear PoPville – Where Do Thieves Sell Stolen Bike Parts Besides Craigslist?

Photo by PoPville flickr user Christopher Michael Poole

Dear PoPville,

I had my front Shimano WH-R550 rim stolen off my road bike yesterday in broad daylight from right next to the patio at Alero on U st. These things are not cheap and I was wondering if you or anyone knows where these things end up? I figure the thief would try to sell it ASAP, but I cant see anything on cragslist or ebay yet… Is there a flea market somewhere that I might have a chance of at least buying it back??
