Basic Bike Info
Fixed Gear / Track Bike
Condition of Bicycle / Distinguishing Features:
This bike was used but in good condition. I had blue handlebar tape on it and I had a black bike rack installed last month. It's a red bike with white and yellow stripes. I bought it from a friend last summer and it was one of the best bikes I've owned. It had some wear on the body and a black bicycle seat.

How long was the bike locked in this location?:
The bike was parked at Damen and Armitage, infront of the liquor store on that corner. I work directly across the street. I must have not locked it up properly - I was in a rush because I was running late to my job so I don't remember exactly how I locked it - I knew that I could see it from my window at work so I wasn't too worried. Although, a car was blocking my view for a portion of the afternoon which is when it must have happened. I was taking the garbage out around 4 or 5 when I noticed it had been stolen. I thought I had the U-lock locking the bike body to the bike rack but the U-lock was attached to the bike rack and the cable was cut. I'm really bummed. I would pay to get it back, if someone needed it that badly I wish I could have just given them money instead of having my bike taken.
