My SE Draft was stolen from inside my apartment building in Shadyside on Summerlea St. (someone forgot to make sure the front door was locked). Here is a picture of the bike, it is the exact same colors, model – https://dl.dropbox.com/u/676624/sedraft-stolen.jpg
Apparently he is dumb enough to ride it, also without removing the black Artisan Tattoo sticker that I put on it. My friend posted this on my Facebook profile:
“I saw some kid on your bike this morning. I was walking into work and waiting to cross fort pitt blvd just after the smithfield bridge, he came across the bridge turned left onto fort pitt. He slowed down when I yelled at him then took off. I saw him turn right onto stanwick but by the time I got down there I didn’t see him or the bike. I walked a few blocks to see if he locked it up somewhere but nothing. Dude had dark hair and was wearing a white t shirt and brown jeans.”
I think I just saw this bike locked up next to 218 Taylor Street in Bloomfield (the section of the street between Dreaming Ant/Crazy Mocha and Friendship Ave). I didn’t check for a sticker, but it’s def. an SE Draft with red grips. GO GO GO!!!!!
Very true Michael, I made the mistake of thinking it would be safe in the common area. There isn’t anything to lock a bike to, however I could’ve -and- should’ve at least free-locked it so the jerk couldn’t just ride off with it…
Anyway, here is some more information on the bike:
