I locked my bike to the bus stop sign at Belmont and Clark for the West bound Belmont bus and went to the Annoyance theater across the street for a few hours. I think there's a possibility it was removed by the CTA (even though there is nothing posted indicating this practice is illegal).

Recovery Information

Recovery Notes: 
On July 27, the victim wrote: "LOCATED! Somehow miraculously an acquaintance spotted the bike about a half a mile to a mile away unlocked outside an Einstein Bagel place. Unreal. The power of social media. Thank you guys for what you do. I can't believe I found it." There was reportedly no sign of the U-lock or damage to the frame.
