Other situation, please describe below.
How long was the bike locked in this location?: 
All day long
Incident Description: 
Bike was locked at the Bryn Mawr Red Line Station, inside the station where there are bike racks. When I got there, I discovered my heavy-duty chain was frozen shut and so I only locked the bike to itself, using the built-in wheel locking system. I assume that whoever stole my bike was very strong and simply picked it up and walked away with it, or more likely took it up onto the train. The bike weighs about 200 lbs. and is almost impossible for me to lift myself, hence the unwise decision I made.
