Unfortunately many of us cyclists have suffered this fate at one time or another. Ryan who I worked with back in my Agfa days reached out and was wondering if we could do a shout out regarding his ’2 month old’ 2012 Kona Cinder Cone.
2 months = total bummer
What have you done to get a stolen bike returned?
Here’s Ryan’s description ( I hope you get your bike back):
The bike was stolen from UW campus, in front of Engineering 5 on the evening of May 30th, some time between 7pm and 9:30pm. It was locked, and I removed the seat like I always do. In addition, I had just gotten a flat prior to locking it up, so the bike was taken with a flat, no seat, and while locked. (Clearly this was somebody who knew the value of the bike.) There have also been several other thefts of high-value bikes on campus recently, so I’m guessing find one, find them all. So if anybody sees a blue Cinder Cone, white forks, that doesn’t have the original (white) seat, it’s likely mine. I’ve notified all the bike shops in town to look out for such a bike, but obviously if the thief doesn’t bring it in, not much else they can do.
Thanks Graham! Hopefully by getting the word out there, I can eventually get it back…
Good luck Ryan, hope you get your bike back!
