my roommate went to buy smokes at the a+ at highland and east liberty blvd last night and some dude was trying to sell this bike for $20

blue and black and white KHS road bike, sti, radially laced front wheel, iron city bikes sticker. i think he said it was pretty big, like 59-60something.

unfortunately, i had just gone to bed or i would have gone down there and recovered it. my roommate didn’t have $20.

Yo, if anyone sees this bike call Steve @ 412-478-1436 immediately!

steve – did you report this to the police? It will make getting it back a lot easier than just taking it from the dude or paying him $20 for it.

Yeah I did the night it was stolen. I’m bussing up there now to even see if I can spot dude or get a name or something to tell the cops.

unixd0rk, did your roomate ride a bike to the A+?

Wondering how the dude thought to try to push the bike on him.

Did your roomate have a description? How about a picture phone? “Yeah, that’s a pretty sweet bike. I haven’t got the 20 bucks right now, let me go get it. No, don’t leave, I’ll give you 40 bucks for it if you stick around. Ok, look, do you have a phone number I can reach you at, when I get the money? Who should I ask for? “

Fuck it – have to go back to work. Will scope later.

He’s probably not awake yet anyway. Better bet is to go back after unixd0rk’s bedtime.

steve, if you speak to the cops, maybe they can review the A+ security camera footage, if there is any.

good thinking phill – some dude named abdul was working last night… will try and see if the cops can find him/footage

yeah this was at about 1am. i’ve sent the link to this to my roommate and asked him to describe the dude.

…and i just wanted to point out that i call this guy a crackhead not based on race or social status, but because he told my friend “i’m just tryin’ to smoke some crack, man.” while trying to get him to buy the bike.

oh… he likely approached my friend because he biked down to there. i’m going to keep an eye out the next few nights and so are my roommates.

thanks man. i will try and swing by there on the late night shift tonight. cops didn’t come for a SECOND time. stood in that parking lot waiting for them for hours today.

If I go for my usual nightly ride, I will swing by there.
