After posting this stolen bicycle notice on Monday Sept 1st I received a phone call on Thursday Sept 4th from May Day Tattoo Shop on Grand / Ashland and they had just purchased the bicycle from a vagrant on the street who peddled it to them for $50. They found the ad on stolenbike.org and called me right away. The return of the bike has emboldened my faith in humanity and proven that online communities can be very effective at a local scale.
