Bike was parked in the garage of 120 S LaSalle St downtown. I park it there everyday. It turns out none of the parking garage cameras point to the area where everyone who bike commutes secures their bikes. A couple other people were down there as well this afternoon, realizing that their bike had just been stolen too. There were no cut locks lying around, however I found a piece of velcro from my lock that said "Kryptonite" on the ground. I don't know the serial number because my friend who is the Revolution Cycles in Madison, WI ordered it for me directly to his shop. Ironically, he is out of town on a bike tour, so I am unable to get a hold of him.
This bike was recovered:
