As more Portlanders get sick-and-tired of the bike theft-related activities happening in broad daylight all over our city, we’re hearing more incidents like the one just shared by reader Spencer B. this morning on the OBRA Chat email list:
SUBJECT: accosted, chased, chased suspect, then recovered high end MTB fork- Portland
long story short, this AM i rode underneath the Burnside Bridge where a group was finishing up chopping a high end bike. I yelled, they stalled, skeazy mkskeazo took the fork and bolted on his bike while I was surrounded. I broke free, chased the guy down in Old Town, the man proceeded to chuck the fork in the gutter when I got close.
Its expensive, its what I’d race MTB’s on. If you’ve lost anything recently send a message soon, otherwise its going into the black hole bike vault of the Portland Police Bureau.
Lock that business up.
