Condition of Bicycle / Distinguishing Features: 
When the bike was stolen, it had its original black tires and black handlebars (see in pics). The seat is not the factory seat; I changed the factory seat out with a "Planet Bike" seat which has some padding. The Planet Bike logo is visible on the side of the seat. Also, the bike may be seen with two safety lights- one underneath the handlebars and the other below the seat. The frame is small, dark grey and is in pretty good condition. I can't recall any obvious scratches or scruff marks. A notable detail about the handlebars you might notice are very, very small bite marks, likely on the left handlebar (or both handlebars) These are the bite marks of a chipmunk.

It wasn't until finally leaving the house on Sunday June 26 for a drive through COVID test, that I noticed the missing bike. A police report was immediately filed.
