Bikes Stolen 2016
Stolen from Kim’s Oakland garage: Extra Small Cellini, medium-gray with orange-red trim.
From the GAP mailing list, here is a post from Craislist:
On September 24th my uncle stole a bike from the Greater Allegheny Passage downtown. It’s a black Fuji and it looks expensive. If this is your bike please contact me via email, I will be turning it into the police though I am told it will just sit in a room.
Saw a possibly stolen bike downtown around 5pm. Orangish red Cannondale mtb with disc brakes. Dm for more information
Thursday September 29th my commuter bike was stolen from my truck in Millvale Riverfront Park sometime during the day. It was a Montagna mountain bike. I have been looking for a photo of it but cant find one. It was a light green/blue neon frame with white handle bars (with extenders). It had front and rear fenders. The front fender was not the full length because it had broken. There is a registration sticker on the frame from 1988-89? from the University of Colorado-Boulder.
My weeks-old medium black and red Cannondale commuter bike was stolen from the inside hallway of my locked apartment building on Mifflin Ave in Regent Square/Wilkinsburg, near Biddle’s Escape. The combination lock was busted open. It was taken today, Wed 10/5/16, between 4pm and 10:30pm.
The only differences since I took the photo are a black bottle cage and small scratches on the handlebar near the left shifter, plus a few weeks of city wear.
I am filing a police report as well. Any help would be appreciated!
In case you haven’t considered it, if you have renter’s insurance, this may be covered minus your deductible; or possibly under the buildings owner insurance since it was in the hallway. Also, if it was purchased using a credit card, it may be covered under a protection plan…as well as any extras included on your bike
Two more bikes stolen from Mifflin Ave. / Regent Square. Probably stolen Tues or Wed.
1) Blue woman’s Cannondale with tear in the seat and a satchel on the back. (Kind of an old lady bike. It was perfect for me.)
2) Silver men’s specialized.
We also reported to police. Probably valued less than our insurance deductible.
Another neighbor reported yet another Canondale stolen from the garage last month, too.
Stolen black Surly Straggler with brown Brooks saddle yesterday in Oakland. I’ve seen this bike a few times and noticed they were using a $5 cable lock.
Thanks for posting, Hubster. I really appreciate the help. This is my first new bike. It got stolen before I could make the switch from the cable lock to a new U-lock :( Please let me know if you see anything!
That’s rough. If you have homeowner’s/renters insurance look up your coverage, they may offer reimbursement. Or if you used a credit card for the purchase they may also provide reimbursement coverage.
I frequent that bike parking area and there have been a number of stolen bikes over the years (all with cable locks as well). I even had a saddle bag stolen myself. I would definitely recommend a u-lock or chain lock to secure the frame and a wheel to the rack, another cable for the second wheel, and a seat leash or non-quick release seat post bolt and take any easily removed accessories such as lights and saddle bags with you. I wish you good luck in getting your bike back. I will definitely let you know if I see anything.
If it’s the garage by Presby I saw the flier there too, and checked here to report it. I noticed you say other bikes have been stolen there; have they been reported to the campus police?
Bike stolen at Friendship Ave. and Negley from my porch, someone cut the lock. Vintage racing Bianchi, really noticeable teal seat and handlebars. If you see it, please call 843-906-5716. Thanks so much.
- Black Trek fx1. 10 days old… I had a rear fender, but that was easily removable.
- This isn’t my bike but it looked basically identical to this (except a SLIGHTLY different saddle, I think and without a water bottle holder):
- It was stolen Nov. 8 (election day…) between the work hours of 8:45 am – 4:30 pm from a bike rack on CMU campus (specifically outside of baker hall on the green side, not the side that faces frew street)

My Morpheus Vimana was stolen from my car in the Point Breeze area by Frick Park last night. Feel free to give me a call at 412-889-3960 or email me if something turns up. It’s got a black fame size m, fox 36 fork. There aren’t many of these rolling around. FB image: https://scontent.fphl2-1.fna.fbcdn.net/t31.0-8/15123034_1773004956294168_6137160761277728521_o.jpg

Bike stolen from garage at 121 S. Highland Ave. Noticed bike was gone at 8:45 pm on November 27. I was gone for thanksgiving break but i believe it was stolen between November 23 to the 27. It is a 2013 Trek 1.5 H2 compact road bike. Main frame color is white with blue accents.
Please let me know if you have any information. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 610-551-5987.
I had a bike (2007 gold Bianchi Volpe) stolen from the area earlier this year. Bummer, right?! Anyways, I noticed there are two security cameras on South Highland that seem to be property of the 121 building. I’d recommend checking with management to see if they could either share the footage with you or review it themselves. Otherwise, if you file a police report, they should have the authority to obtain any pertinent security footage for you. I think there’s a good chance the thief would have ridden past these cameras on your bike. Good luck and keep us posted!

Bike stolen off front porch by the corner of Forbes and Wightman in Squirrel Hill sometime between 7-9pm on 21 August 2017.
It is a 2016 Cannondale Trail 4, dark grey in color, large frame. No fenders, 29″ wheels. It is quite new and does not have many distinguishing scratches–does have some slight ones between the handlebars where my lock chafed at the surface.
Please let me know if you have any information! You can reach me at moonrise55 (at) gmail.com
Stealing of bikes is a huge issue nowadays. I’m glad that we at https://www.essayontime.com.au/write-my-essay have a nice and safe parking for our bikes. And none is still stolen.
I was hungry because I forgot to eat breakfast, but then the SPAM posted by @marthasipe above filled me up with a meaty goodness.
Not a bike, but I had a saddlebag(Axiom) with my kids helmet(green giro scamp) and a few odd tools and other items as well as my headlight stolen (Cygolite 400) while at work yesterday. Co-worker had his headlight and electronic horn stolen.
We work downtown on Ross St and lock our bikes outside in a parking lot, but it is also has heavy traffic by smokers who just hang out. This is the first time something has been taken in the 2-3 years I have been parking there.
Can anyone thing of neaby pawn shops where someone might try to unload the items?
If your bike has been stolen (or you want to help somebody find there’s) check out Wolfpack Electronics. They’re back to their old habits, at their new location on Craig St.
Steelers WR and cyclist Juju Smith Schuster had his bike stolen. 2 tickets to a Steelers home game to whoever finds his bike.
