My bike was stolen yesterday from where I locked it at work, $200 reward:
Your chances of recovery may be better if you gave a description of it in your posting. That's more important info than mentioning reward amounts. The thieves are getting bolder. I'm keeping mine indoors from now on.
I just wanted to add that I mentioned the above about psting a sescription on your post because your web link won't work for me, and others may be suffering the same problem.
What is the point of this story? Bicycle theft is one of the most common crimes in the Bay Area, maybe second to iphone theft. Because of the price of some bikes (and some iphones), these crimes can qualify as felonies.
So why is this article pointing out a single theft of a medium priced bike? Is there a big upswing of bike theft in the city this summer? This surely isn't the only bike stolen in the city this month. There were probably others stolen this week. Why did this one make the news?
Resident, the point of the article is this: Don't assume that locking your bike on a second-floor balcony will guarantee its security. This is news--at least to me.
Steve, my bike is posted on Craigslist, it's an Giant XTC 2 29er XL.
