Bike Stolen

Had my bike stolen last night on Havemeyer between Grand and Metro. Wish I had a picture of it, but I don't. It's a mountain bike with a slick on the back wheel and nobby up front. The color is basically rust (I stripped all the paint and did a thin clear coat so it would rust up the surface. Thought it would make the bike less of a target...) I just put a couple hundred bucks into new tires, rear hub, etc.

Well, no expectations on finding it, I just wanted to give everyone a heads up that bikes aren't as safe as you may think; Krypto locks and chains notwithstanding.

If you do spot the bike somewhere in the hood (I live three blocks there) please let me know - And here's a little video to make everyone who's had a bike jacked in the hood feel a little bit better...
