    ratattack:when did this turn into the "hey guess what bike you can steal!?" thread? i hate seeing when this thread is bumped. generally, b/c it means someone's devastated that they just lost their bike. lately, it's because people are pointing out the theft-able ones.
    I said it because I wanted to know who was dumb enough to lock up their bike like that. The rear wheel did get stolen eventually, but it wasn't because of some post on the internet. It's because the idiot locked up a really nice road bike by its front wheel and left it locked to a bike rack with no video surveillance for a month.http://www.fanfiction.net/s/800170/1/EVANGELION_NEXUS

    anyone missing a bike, shady craigslist listing:

    that front hub looks kinda like a phil wood...very shady indeed. It seems like every single shady CL listing uses "my roommate left it and I dont want it" as their reason for listing.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

    ^^ YEAH. that bike was left behind by a roomate,.. bull.
    and bikes don't take up that much space. give me a break. this person's reasoning is completely made up. totally stolen.

    did you report it to anyone? police or that Boston Stolen Bike facebook page or anything?Mattia: "I don''t usually watch porn with pickaxe, but when I do it, I make sure to be on the right website"

    I hit the "flag as prohibited" hoping some CL mod would realize how shady it was, but it's still up. I put it on Stolen bikes Boston just now. I dunno what good the police would do without more evidence...Naaaah, too uncool for the #messlyfe.

    thing is though, if this bike actually is stolen, i'd imagine the victim would have at least one picture of it to be able to compare against.
    we got Keena's bike back just about the same way. someone saw a shady listing on CL, Keena went to the police with a picture of his bike and then was able to describe each part on it without looking at it. i think putting it on that page is a good idea.Mattia: "I don''t usually watch porn with pickaxe, but when I do it, I make sure to be on the right website"

    it just seems weird to me- that's obviously a Deep V of some sort, if it's a Velocity the rim alone costs like $80. why would you leave that behind?
    it looks really ridden too, dirty, used, like it was built up the way it is on purpose, looks like someone loved it.
    i just find it really hard to believe that such a fad-ish thing would be forgotten or uncared about enough to throw away after so much use. nahmean?Mattia: "I don''t usually watch porn with pickaxe, but when I do it, I make sure to be on the right website"

    Hey everyone,

    My roommate got her bike ripped off from central. Please help out:

    It was a dark blue hybrid bike, whose brand is MARINE written in big on the bike. model name may be Kent field

    serial # SNIC509ES67**

    Yeah I know, nothing too distinctive but if you see it locked up just check the serial, or it might show up in a shop or on CL."You're dancing TOO SMALL; dominant males dance like THIS!" -(drunk) Nate, to me on the art of seduction and the role of dancing therein (while on a dancefloor)

    Not that I expect anyone on here to ever see it, but someone stole my tall bike frame. After a month or so of on and off work fixing a broken weld and adding more support to it I was finally ready to paint it and be done. Taped it all up and brought it outside the shop and got a coat of paint on one side. Then my can ran out of gas or something and in the five minutes it took to go inside and find a new can someone jacked it. It blows my mind that someone would grab a big frame like that, half covered in wet red paint in the middle of the day on the street, but then again, I do live in Lawrence. Drove around and rode my bike around afterward looking for it but didn't see shit. Probably a scrapper in a truck. On the plus side I still have the wheels, bars, crankset, and bottom bracket, so all I need to do now is dig up a couple more frames and start over...

    In the off chance that they do put the thing back together again it's a fucking tall bike. It doesn't matter what color they paint it obviously I'll see it from a mile away if they're dumb enough to keep riding it around here.

    The kickstand was key. Note the vestigial deraileur which was a (failed) last minute attempt to fix the chain tension the afternoon before I had to catch the train for CM. I called all the scrap yards in my area this morning and gave them the heads up on it, so I figure whatever path the bike goes down (rebuilt and ridden, craigslisted, or scrapped) I have a decent chance of seeing it again.

    In the mean time I think I'm going to start working on a high ride chopper!
