    Long time no type family.

    Trying to find a photo of it to post, but my homeboy Saul's Icarus was stolen last night/this morning.

    It's unique (obviously, it's handmade) and easily identifiable as the rear rectangle has curved stays and the top tube is lowered.
    I'd call it british racing green. has all retro-grouch, randonneur style parts (narrow curvey drop bars with bar end shifters).
    Will get an image.

    All help is appreciated and will be rewarded for assistance in finding the bike.

    edited to add that it was stolen from his house, dorchester, crime of opportunity as the door was left open. If it matters.

    had a bike stolen from my brighton basement sometime in the past 3 weeks. took the lock of to let someone use and i never put it back on :(

    many people have been moving out of the building, i suspect one of them/friends/movers, although i have no proof.

    it was a green fixed gear (noname frame repainted green) with flip flop hub, carbon fork (noname), carbon seatpost (karbona), sugino canks (black), origin 8 mustache bars with orange grips and a custom drilled brake lever going through the bars, with a distinctive nut on the tubing instead of a ferrule (shut up), rear tektro brake (i think). orange and black eighthinch tires with knockoff shallow v front rim (brown), and some shitty back wheel i cant remember. really small gears i think 36/17

    had a michelin man sticker up front thats partially removed






    it was my winter bike, it was dirty as fuck and didnt have pedals or a saddle so they must have had parts with them or a van/truck.

    thx

    :( so bummed that this bike got stolen. Please get in touch with Saul if you see it! his wife's stock Redline 925 got stolen as well. here are the details:

    "The Frame is an Icarus by Ian Sutton painted British racing green but it has a lot of chips. It has a low stand over and pretty distinctive bends in the rear triangle (see pic)

    > It has a custom royal H rack with two open post for a decalur and bag
    > The drivetrain is campagnolo centaur with bar end shifters
    > Brakes are Paul component racers with cane creek levers mounted on nitto bars with a VO stem and chris king headset
    > The wheels are white industry in the rear and Schmidt in the front laced to VO rims and rigged with a supernova light bolted to the rack
    > VO seatpost and full VO fenders along with a Brooks saddle.

    It is really special to me and I will gladly reward anyone who can find it or give me a lead."

    More green (kinda) bike theft: new 2014 Kona Dew Boston 2.0 stolen from a rental customer from in front of the Mariott Long Wharf hotel.

    Pretty recognizable. Green fenders (prob removed) big fat saddle with bright green "KONA" on it, "URBAN ADVENTOURS" decals on downtube (possibly removed but they don't come off without a fight) Kona logo underneath. "I BIKE BOSTON" painted on the top tube. "DEW BOSTON 2.0" on the seat stay each side, and "URBAN ADVENTOURS" painted on non-drive chain stay, outside, under the clear coat.

    Serial number is AJ240065613, the BB also has "DEW BOSTON" embossed on it. It's a 53cm/medium size.

    Other key features are Hayes MX-5 brakes (uncommon on hybrids) and Deore rear derailleur.

    If you see someone acting sketchy with a bike that matches the above description or see one on CList, let me or the BPD know. There's a police report filed. These bikes are really everywhere in the city, but tourists are pretty obvious and thieves aren't...Naaaah, too uncool for the #messlyfe.

    ^Craig do people ever take these bike home with them, or for overnight purposes? I saw a UA green-fendered thang locked up against a fence somewhere in Allston but it was pretty afterhours. Not until I got home did I realize it might be a bit sketchy.

    The stem will have a number on it if it's still in the fleet, craig, may want to post that.
    And they do rent overnight.somebody turn the lights off on this place already.
  12.  
    Answers: Yes they do get taken overnight. pretty frequently.

    that one in allston is a pretty great dude who bought one about 2 weeks ago I think (I saw it when I was at BB's yesterday.)

    This one will not have a stem number, we haven't gotten around to numbering them there yet (probably won't actually)

    Forgot to mention, these are all-black and sparkly as opposed to the older ones which were gray or matte black.Naaaah, too uncool for the #messlyfe. I just like to hang out in loading docks and pretend to talk on my radio so that people will like me. - Mfratt

    here's an update so no one tries to run me off the road. So I got another frame. Same one. different year so the decals are different. built it up the same way so they are VERY similar bikes. my current one is as pictured below. My stolen one's most distinguishing features are that is has a black headset with a chrome fork.

    Just saw on FB (SomerVelo's feed) that a (Greg's) yellow Geekhouse was stolen outta JP last night: S&S couplers, fenders & mustache bars (at least in the photo they posted), white industry cranks, raw Icarus stem with feather brazed on it.

    I imagine that's the bike from that cross-country tour a few years back?

    Maybe call SomerVelo if you see it?

    Sketchy fucker brought his bike in just now - real nice trek hybrid, step thru, used to be green, now rattlecanned black. Poorly. Adjustable water bottle cage, cruiser bars that are aftermarket, cupholder on the handlebars, rear rack. Can't read the serial number because there's too much spraypaint globbed on it.

    Someone slashed both his tires, lol.

    my bike wasn't stolen, but some asshat not only stole the lights off my bike while it was locked outside of my workplace today, but they stole the spoke card from a 1999 courier race I was in that has major personal value to me, and no value to anyone else. what the fuck is wrong with people? I don't even care about the lights, that's $30 and I know the risk of leaving them on there when locked up, but that spoke card is irreplacable at any cost. FUCK
