    surprisefries:Bike was found. Who steals a friggin' tall bike anyway.

    late pass but the guy who's bike got stolen was my co-worker Nate. His wife told everyone she could to be on the look out, including their mail carrier. A few hours later the mail carrier said another USPS employee spotted it abandoned. So the lesson be good to the folks that deliver your shit.
    Stolen last night off the front of a MBTA bus in Chelsea. I forgot my gloves so decided to take the bus home.

    I want to know the story behind this one.

    You were on the bus and saw your bike on the front, then you looked down for a while, and then you looked up again and the bike was gone? Did the driver remember who took it off? Presumably one of the bus passengers. MBTA buses have interior security cameras, don't they? Maybe there's an angle that would show who took your bike off the front?

    Or did some random dude just run out into the street, grab the bike off the front of the bus, and ride off, flipping you the bird the whole way?::lols at Dan's great photoshopping job:: ::slowly stops laughing:: ::googles:: ::kills self:: -tinyhonkshus
    Yeah anyway, what the fuck with the bus driver.DFL and DTF :D:D:D:D
    Bus was packed, I sat at the back. I've put the bike on the bike racks many times so I wasn't too worried. I was engrossed int book. When I got off of the bus the rack was folded up and the bike was gone. MBTA drive said she didn't notice anyone taking the bike off. She called the transit cops blah blah blah...Take-off everything but your rainboots
    D:i mean that looks like a 10 cat bag, easy
    I had a front wheel stolen from the rack behind an apartment building near four years ago (cheap QR, no big). They also popped my saddle and tossed it on the ground. That entire rack is basically a boneyard of frames and wheels from how often bikes get stolen.

    Begs the question, what the fuck does some crackhead do with just a front wheel? At the time I talked to Ferris and BnB and they said they never have people come in to try to sell them just wheels.
    Too lazy to change their flat.Take-off everything but your rainboots
    My personal theory regarding accessory theft (particularly saddles) is that it is done in hopes of immobilizing your bike, so that they can come back later and steal the whole thing when they have more time/less chance of getting caught.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
    So the person that stole my top-cap and a few headset spacers was just playing the long game?You said time was infinite, so why the watch wrapped around your wrist?
    A couple of years ago we had a rash of six or seven bikes coming in with the headset bearings being stolen. Most of the time the stem was even put back in place and tightened but the spacers and bearings would always be gone.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

    Bike was stolen last night (June 4) from a locked front porch in Jamaica Plain. 61cm Surly Pacer, green, Shimano 105 parts, Open Pro rims. (Picture in link below)

    If found, please get at me at 860 466 0910, and then light whomever stole the bike on fire.

    nooooooooYou said time was infinite, so why the watch wrapped around your wrist?

    I know its a long shot but I am posting everywhere trying to find this bike. It was stolen front the NW corner of Beacon, very near the Ghost Bike memorial for Anita Kurmann. It has a lot of sentimental value to me as it belonged to my grandfather and this frame rode Baja California on a tour back in 1989. I have since converted to single speed and made it my own.

    Stolen from behind my back at about 6:15pm on Friday, July 15th.

    1985 Trek 720
    Single Speed
    Copper Bell
    Brooks B17 w/ copper rivets
    Boston bike Party Spoke Cards

    I will try to upload photos later but do not currently have any pics hosted anywhere.

    Thanks for this site,

    Posting for a friend:

    My bike was just stolen from the back of Bank of America in JP. If you see a jerk on a bike with a flat black finish with some red stripes and a crossbar slanted down, run him over.

    Keep an eye out! I'll update with photo when/if I get one.Worstcase I'll just zip tie on a seat... but i'd rather not. —Zev (who else)

    Sketchy looking clist post for a Circle A single speed frame. Couldn't find record of one missing, nor am I familiar with the bike. Anyone on here recognize it?

    Checked into that earlier because it's a steal at the price, but it's a 66cm frame.

    The price is likely because it's nearly impossible to sell when it's that gigantic
    Mrs Fries' bike got jacked last night from 3rd St. Cambridge around EVOO, Firebrand Saints area. It's a several year old San Jose, green, paint very chipped from locking up, bright blue bar tape. Size is like a 49? I think it's the smallest size that still has 700c wheels. Front tire is red, full rear fender (no front fender IIRC but I might be wrong).

    ETA Also there's a black trailer hitch on the rear axle, and a white bottle cage.DFL and DTF :D:D:D:D

    MF and I have both been checking Craigslist on and off, and she found it last night. Met the guy today with no fewer than 4 plainclothes CPD officers and got it back! CPD were great. It seeeeeems like the guy wasn't the one that stole it. He claimed he had Bikes not Bombs hold it for a month to check with local police or whatever but she did have a report on file with CPD, so I dunno. The cops sent her on her way while they were still interviewing the dude so she's not sure how it ended. At any rate, woohoo!

    Whoa, nice!

    Also, does it seem like all the bikes he's selling have oversized bars? What's up with that?!Worstcase I'll just zip tie on a seat... but i'd rather not. —Zev (who else)
    It was unclear if he took the bikes to BnB or if that's where he got them, but either way I dunno maybe that's just what people are getting rid of? It is odd.DFL and DTF :D:D:D:D

    my partner's bike was stolen today near west medford / the mystic river. 2015 grey bianchi lupo, 53cm. standout features: wmbr sticker, yellow bell, sold from ace wheelworks sticker, black rear rack, black front/rear fenders, triple crank set, light green mesh net on rack, very short headset, stock everything else. it's a common bike but please give a shout if you notice it with any of the standout details above, thanks!

    shittt I am still in the habit of scanning all bikes I pass, from MF's stolen San Jose so I'll keep an eye out!
