    Speaking of maybe stolen bikes, yesterday I noticed a bike with Urban Adventour decals on it locked up at MIT. What are the chances the bike is legit?Worstcase I'll just zip tie on a seat... but i'd rather not. —Zev (who else)

    What are the chances it was legit in the first place if it came from UA?

    MIT kids buy our bikes like crazy. I can nearly guarantee that it's legit. Also haven't had a rental bike theft in over a year, so there's that.

    Alex, are you insinuating that we steal bikes? Not sure what your hate is all about, dude.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

    ^"Legit" can mean a few things. I meant it to mean "acquired legally." It's possible Alex was snarking about...maybe the build/components vs. price tag? Maybe the maintenance? Maybe it was just a dumb joke? Hard to say.Worstcase I'll just zip tie on a seat... but i'd rather not. —Zev (who else)

    I certainly read it as him saying 'is it really even a legit bike?' Meaning he thinks they're crap.I have DTF pants. They're crotchless. -surprisefries

    Sort of. He seems to have trouble paying employees and not having bakfiets stolen (probably by people he owes boatloads of money to) though, but I don't know the while story."life is hard, cats are soft." - surprisefries

    Marc has a phone that is most easily reached via facebook messenger if you're friends with him

    You can contact me if that's easier, I just want to find the bike.

    I will say that I just sold another Vincere yesterday so if you see another one (size 61, Marc's is a 56) then don't kill them right off the bat especially if it seems like they're a very nice walking beanpole.Naaaah, too uncool for the #messlyfe.

    Know anybody who lost a white 2014 Specialized Ariel Sport Disc? Someone named Shaheem Samuel posted one for sale to the BBP FB page claiming that it's worth $2500, and asking "more like $250" : https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1584457515169990&set=p.1584457515169990

    Photobucketed by me for posterity in case he deletes it:

    Also, what the hell are "tappers"?

    kind of a long story, but I wouldnt be surprised if the other two bikes were previously stolen from somewhere else and stored there for the day, then taken again. the Basso was left for a couple of minutes unlocked by the rear entrance of where my friend works. He brought the bike out, changed his shoes inside, and the bike was gone.MUFFDVR

    Hey guys,
    This might be a tall order since I don't have a picture of the bike that was taken, but if its possible to keep an eye out for all of these pieces put together it would be a huge help. My bike was taken from the basement of my apartment building in Brighton, all aftermarket parts.
    It's a blue 51 cm track frame slathered in stickers (mishka, rebeleight, citygrounds, typical stuff) with a raw/rusted FBM sword fork (segmented crown), white rims laced to silver profile hubs(front wheel radially laced), a riveted saddle and black riser bars with a black porter rack and front brake. That navy, rust and white should be characteristic if it hasnt gotten mangled and spray painted.

    Thanks much

    • CommentAuthorSimonkercz
    • CommentTimeJun 14th 2015
     
    Nandy, the frame is all covered in stickers, it's a pake rum runner frame, but not branded with anything to suggest it. Theres a pretty big Rebeleight sticker on the downtube and a big ol chrome sticker on the top tube by the saddle I think. And when I said the fork was rusty, I mean its pretty rusty. Also, forgot to mention this before. It has a Sugino messenger chainwheel.
