Basic Bike Info
dark gray, black and light sea green lettering and decal
Condition of Bicycle / Distinguishing Features:
Excellent condition with a recent tune-up. Aluminum gravel bike frame. Mechanical disc brakes. The groupset parts are SRAM Apex 1 and Praxis. Wide Clement gravel tires. HED rims. On the top side of the down tube is a partial silver sticker (I waited too late to remove the sticker fully, so part of the sticker stayed). The bike also had a Topeak bike rack on the back and mountain bike clipless pedals and a bike light on the handlebar. The bike tape on both sides of the handlebars was worn away.

How long was the bike locked in this location?:
My bike was locked up to a bike rack outside of Namaskar Yoga at 3946 N Southport Ave, Chicago, IL 60613 starting at 11:00am. I taught a yoga class and after class, around 12:30pm, I went to get my bike and it was gone. At one point during class, I saw a larger group of people hanging out outside the studio, which isn't typical for that area. There is walking traffic on the sidewalk, but big groups don't typically hang out there. I'm wondering if that's when the bike was stolen and I'm sharing this in case it's been reported in other incidents. Although the bike lock was missing too, there was a tiny part of the lock left behind. It looks like it was a very clean cut through the u-lock, assuming some type of professional tool was used.
