I just got this note from “kvitkay””

“An enormous word of thanks to my hero Corey and his posse of bicycle advocate/vigilante messenger friends who recovered my bike last Saturday. You’ll have to ask Corey for the dramatic retelling of events. A word of appreciation also to the stolen bikes forum, the guys at the Bike Gallery downtown who informed me of the site, and all the savvy bike lovin’ straight shootin’ & honest Ptowners who are looking out for each other and making bicycle theft that much more of a challenge.

Thank you!”
