Not a lot to say… the bike was only three weeks old and was stolen from the parking garage at 3rd and Columbia downtown. It is red with grip shifters. It had a bike computer (although I still have it–the sensor was still on the bike), no water bottle, and a lock. I had locked it with a wire lock through the front tire, bike frame, and through the rear tire. Although I don’t expect to see it again as I have no picture or way to prove that it was mine, I would like to know if others have had bikes stolen from the same location and what suggestions you might have for avoiding this in the future.

If you want to contact me, please respond to this post.
