This is a brand new bike; it was locked to a rail outside the Chinatown public library, but unfortunately someone managed to steal it, possibly around 4pm on October 15th. The bike had a black pannier attached, with a black helmet inside. I filed a police report, and of course it's not clear if we will end up finding it.
