Condition of Bicycle / Distinguishing Features:
The bike was bought brand new in 2004. The paint along the right side of the cross bar was worn down (from leaning against trees) and had just a smidge of rust. There was one water bottle holder on the lower angled bar. It was a men's bike, and bit bigger, but I don't know the exact size. I just had it tuned up a month ago, but the front brake rubbed a little (you can hear a metallic sound). Shimano disc brakes. The front shocks are pretty used up.
How was the lock defeated?:
Lock is missing, along with the bike.
Cable w/ Integrated Key Lock
What was the bike locked to?:
Which type of area was your bike stolen from?:
Sidewalk in front of an open business.
How was the bike locked?:
Locked through both wheels and frame to object.
How long was the bike locked in this location?:
I went into the chiropractor at 4:30 pm and came out about 5:30 pm. My bike was gone.
My guess is someone took a bolt cutter and walked away with everything. Including my mint green helmet, see picture.
