Thieves hit Cascade Cycling bike shop in North Portland

Posted by on February 27th, 2010 at 5:50 pm

Thieves broke into Cascade Cycling Friday night (2/26) and stole bicycles and parts.

Cascade owner Ben Bartlett got in touch with us about the news this afternoon. He said the thieves smashed a front window and took several “precious rides.”

Here are the bikes to keep a look out for:


Bartlett, who opened his shop on the corner of N. Killingsworth and Vancouver back in July of 2006 says he’s offering a “handsome reward” for the return of the bikes.

If you have any information about these bikes or the crime itself, please call the shop at (503) 281-0255.

NOTE: We love your comments and work hard to ensure they are productive, considerate, and welcoming of all perspectives. Disagreements are encouraged, but only if done with tact and respect. If you see a mean or inappropriate comment, please contact us and we'll take a look at it right away. Also, if you comment frequently, please consider holding your thoughts so that others can step forward. Thank you — Jonathan

That’s awful. I hope the thieves are brought to justice. Hopefully they have insurance.

A bike shop window without bars is like a cable lock on a bike. Just a matter of time before someone uses very basic tools to open it.

There must be a talented welder/artist interested in designing and fabricating attractive and effective security for windows, maybe even on trade.

Bike Gallery in woodstock has some attractive metal work inside its windows. I am not sure of the artist.

while agree with AC, I deplore the need for such things, and also the negative effect they have on the urban landscape.
