I will keep a look out, but now I’m worried that my expensive lock will get cut up.
EDIT: I think I saw that the other day! I see a bike similar to it at AIP sometimes, and I saw a black kid with shorter-than-shoulder-length braids and a baseball hat ride it past my work yesterday morning, on the sidewalk on penn heading away from downtown.
I recognized it from seeing it by school, and when I realized that if an AI student was going to be up at 5am, they’d be heading TOWARDS the school.
If I see them again, I’ll call the police with the description.
i saw a bike matching this description on gold way two or three days ago with a dude that didn’t look like he belonged on it… didn’t see the thread till after, but when i saw him the first time my “thats a stolen bike” alarm went off independent of this thread… i’d say it’s pretty likely that it was this bike, although i do think talking to the pool/city is the best bet for getting it back
I’ve heard it said that “there has never been a verified bike theft in Pittsburgh involving a U-lock being cut”… so, is this the first, or did something else happen (bic pen, locked to something flimsy like a chain link fence, lifted over a pole, etc)? Does the victim have the broken lock in their possession?
