Condition of Bicycle / Distinguishing Features:

Tear in the back left area of the synthetic brown saddle. Dirt Guard with initials MLH written near the the part where it connects to the post (difficult to see). There is a Boombotix Handlebar mount. There is a Wald #80 splash guard over the front wheel. Front wheel was nearly spent. The rim is in terrible condition and one of the spokes had come loose. The front tire also needed to be replaced. The tires are Continental Travel Contact. The rear wheel and tire are somewhat new. The rim is a Velocity No BS rim. I had installed MKS Lambda Pedals. They are unique looking pedals.

How long was the bike locked in this location?: 
12 hours
Incident Description: 
This may have happened overnight in the early morning of the 15th, but I think it happened that afternoon around 2:30pm. A piece of the U Lock was left behind. It was a smooth cut so a portable electric sawing tool must have been used. It was locked to the fence in the back area or our apartment complex. Some of the tenants like to prop the gates open which takes away the first level of security. This was likely done in broad daylight. I am surprised that no one saw this happen as I would expect the noise of the saw to be noticeable. Perhaps some my neighbors collaborated with the thief?
