Recovery Notes: 
On August 15, 2012, the victim writes: Amazing....I got my Burley bike back!!!! I was driving down 55th Street in Hyde Park and saw it out of the corner of my eye. I will spare you the long story but I wanted to let you know the good news! It was missing the pedals, the speed sensor and mounting bracket for my Polar, and the took bag but otherwise in good shape. I got it from a guy who bought it through a chat room.
