Condition of Bicycle / Distinguishing Features:
3 Year old bike, grimy gears and a bent back tire that I was saving up to replace. By the base of the handlebars there is a Smart Bikes Chicago sticker.
This bike is COVERED IN stickers, namely some faded comic book characters, lots of skulls, some dogs, and some pink and blue threadless stickers. Pink under-the-seat pack, pink lights around the rear spokes, LED hologram light on the front spoke. Around the seat connection the paint is scratched off in zig-zags from when I raised the seat without loosening it enough.

Lock is missing, along with the bike.
What was the bike locked to?:
Locked to a metal pole, pipe, or fence.
Which type of area was your bike stolen from?:
Front of building in residential area.
How was the bike locked?:
Only the frame was locked a solid object.
How long was the bike locked in this location?:
I had my bike outside by my building's parking lot behind some bushes while I waited to afford a new tire. It's got a ton of wear and tear and stickers, so hopefully it's easy to find.
