How long was the bike locked in this location?:
Bike was stolen from a locked, intrusion protected fence, with nothing to lock my bike to inside the gate, strong possibility gate was left open but nobody's speaking up. Happened on Damen and Potomac, pretty close to Wicker Park, Ukrainian Village. Somewhere between 1:00 PM and 3:30 PM. Real shame.
On 8/6/2012 the victim writes: Just wanted to let you know I recovered my bike today. I found it posted on ebay, and after being ignored by the police after my initial report decided to take action myself. After making some pretty far fetched threats to involve the police, the seller sent me his phone number and "worked out a deal" with me. It ended up being in a pawn shop about 5 miles from where it was stolen.. Thanks for everything you guys have done and are doing. Its nice to know the biking community looks out for each other in this way. I'll continue looking at your sight with the hopes of helping reunite bikers with their bikes. Thanks again.
