UPDATE, 2:30pm: Tom says he’s raised all the money he needs to replace everything! Thanks to everyone for helping him out!
Remember Tom Daly, the guy who offers bike-alongs to make sure you get the right used bike off Craigslist? He was all set to open his new shop, WTF Bikes (which stands for Well Tuned & Fast), this week, but unfortunately some nasty criminals decided to rob his shop in the wee hours of Saturday morning.
Daly says he lost over $1,100 worth of tools and bikes (see full list below). Here’s how it went down:
“They came over the fence at the south side of my lot, through the neighbor’s yard… They then clipped the lock that holds my chain link gate shut, helped themselves, and left the way they came in… They must have waited for me to get set up, because I brought all that stuff over there yesterday morning.”
Daly reports that he’s already well on his way to recovering much of the cash value of his stolen goods and he still plans to go forward with his grand opening party Wednesday night. Through the whole ordeal, Daly has kept a smile on his face.
“I’m trying to keep my head up, it’s tough, but I’m gonna be fine.”
Here’s what’s missing. Keep your eyes open!
