How long was the bike locked in this location?:
My bicycle was locked outside the main entrance to the William Eckhardt Research Center at the center of the U Chicago campus (across from the library dome). After returning from dinner near campus my bicycle was missing, and no obvious evidence was left behind. The lock in it's entirety was missing as well. I believe that my bicycle was present when I left for dinner, as this was a very full rack at that time. I been in Chicago less than a week, at work for 3 days (where my bike was stolen from), this is not a good impression.
This bike was recovered:
