You know, that is not enough humiliation and physical pain. Can that tether be rigged to somehow snap back with a force big enough to really send the thief into the ground hard…preferably on a bed of nails?

There’s a bike ditched in the bushes at Winchester Thurston lower school in Shadyside. I couldn’t pull it out, but the handlebars were disconnected from the head. All I could see was a dark red paint job, a front v brake, and the badge looked like it had a c with some jagged silver designs around it. Front driveway at 555 Morewood (near Ellsworth).

Yesterday, my bike was stolen outside my office on Penn Avenue in the Strip District. It is a bright orange mountain bike with letters “KHS” on the top tube. Here are the only pictures I can find of the bike; take note that in the first picture, it IS NOT the green bike, which is blocking the full view of mine.

Found this on Reddit — advice on how to recover a stolen vehicle. Seems like it might be worth a try when your bike is stolen:

“If you’ve ever had a vehicle stolen, you may not feel like you have any recourse. This isn’t true. Go down to your local garbage company’s truck yard at about 5am and hand out flyers to the drivers with information about your car. Offer $50 or a case of beer and chances are that we (garbagemen) will find it. We cover every street and alley several times per week and are generally pretty aware of our surroundings.
I had my stolen motorcycle recovered within a week, and another driver recovered a different stolen bike about a year later.”

The bike is a 2009 in size 55. A picture of the bike can be found here: http://ternofthewheel.com/product/gary-fisher-arc-pro-compact-2033.htm

As of 8:30 this morning there was a forest green Raleigh SC300 hybrid lying on the grass by the healthy ride station across from bakery square at Mellon Park. The back tube was coming out from under the tire, wrapped around the hub. It looks impossible to ride which may be why someone left it there. I took a picture, feel free to message me if you want to see the pic I have no idea how to post it here!

How to post an image: First, post it online somewhere else (Flickr, Instagram, whatever). Second, get the actual image’s URL, starting with http and ending with .jpg or .png, typically.

Then, in this thread, post the following, replacing the parentheses with angle brackets, i.e., less-than and greater-than symbols.

I found a Motobecane ditched in the weeds on the Eliza Trail this evening . It’s in good condition. It’s being kept warm in my garage. I’m sorry if that was someone’s way of “locking” their bike, but I figured it was likely stolen. No one was nearby.

So cool of you to help! My Schwinn Super Le Tour was stolen and I am hopeful that a good samaritan, like you, finds it. You rock!

Somebody near me is selling what appears to be a moderately-new Specialized FatBoy bike. What’s suspicious about it is that the frame is somewhat-slopily spray painted. Has anybody had such a bike stolen recently, and if so can you provide some uniquely-identifiable aspect of the bike that wouldn’t be affected by the spray paint?

FYI there’s a local bikes reported stolen page at http://bikingpgh.com/index.php?title=Bikes_reported_stolen. I didn’t find any Specialized Fatboys there.

Also there’s a national registry of stolen bikes at https://bikeindex.org/stolen. You can search there by serial number (on the bottom of the bottom bracket).

We had a guy come into the bike share office today with a spray painted specialized. Was asking about buying a lock, said he lost the key to his lock. Didn’t know about local bike shops. Had a crooked stem and said he had crashed his bike causing him to lose his light. Just sketchy vibes. I got a picture of the bike, will post later.

Hi all,

My Bike was stolen from in front of the Primantis in the Strip around 11:00pm on Wednesday. Its a black Dimondback Overdrive, a stock XL frame. Unfortunately I don’t have a picture, But here is a link to the same model (if that’s ok). http://www.diamondback.com/bikes-mountain-trail-hardtail-overdrive-sport

It’s a little banged up due to an accident with a car a year ago. Thank you all for the time.

I saw a bike that matches your description, I think Friday, I think on Smithfield near Fourth Ave. The situation looked odd, as in not locked well, as if someone had carelessly leaned it against a building while inside a shop for five minutes.

There is a red bike chained to a sign at the bottom of Rialto Street right at the 31st st bridge off ramp for 28 south. Weird place for a bike. Was there last Friday and again on Saturday. Locked with a black wire lock around the frame only.

I’ve noticed random bikes locked using cable locks (sometimes U locks) sitting for a long time un touched. Especially in weird locations… I assume someone steals them, rides them somewhere, locks them up and gets a ride home via car. The bikes sit until the person returns to the area.

Will keep an eye out, especially for that KHS Alite, as that is my hood. Any other notable identifying markings for the KHS?

This afternoon I discovered that my brand new, black  Breezer Downtown EX cruiser was stolen sometime last night from the side of my porch in Highland Park.

I bought it *three weeks ago*, and absolutely cannot afford to replace it. Any other advice as to how to recover it would be greatly appreciated. I’m @lomuscio, and at 203-856-2419.

Rear rack, bell, no after-market components.

Breezer Downtown EX stolen 8/22 or 8/23 from Highland Park. Brand new. Reward

My bike was stolen from the locked storage locker in the basement of our apartment building. Someone cut the lock off the unit and took the bike sometime in the last week of August.

It is a 2007 women’s Specialized Sirrus Hybrid in almost perfect condition. It is blue with white hawaiian flower decals on the frame. At the time it was stolen it had a water bottle holder, a Specialized brand bag under the seat, and a Cateye brand speedometer attached. The pictures are stock photos of the model, but it is accurate except for the after-market features.

I would really appreciate any help in recovering my bike. If you have information, please call or text 716-480-7993.
