How long was the bike locked in this location?:
Parked bike alongside several other bikes on Wabansia, on a bike rack, next to a Divvy station and behind some cars. Ate lunch outside across the street (Small Cheval). Went back and bike gone — Small Cheval was able to locate exact time and video through their surveillance video. At approximately 3:24 pm, a man approaches the bike. You can see him bend over by the lock for a couple of minutes. He stands up and walks down the block, out of the frame, while on his cell phone. Returns to the bike 1-2 min later, grabs it and rides off going East on Wabansia, under the L and through Park No. 529. When I returned to the bike rack, a different, pretty beat up bike was sitting next to where mine would have been, with no lock.
