Incident Description: 
My bike was stolen directly out of my building's private, three car garage. I believe one of my neighbors left the door open. The thief likely walked into the garage, cut the chain and lock that was secured to the wall mounted rack within the garage and walked right out with my bike. Unfortunately no one saw the incident. Oddly my other bike that was also on this rack was not taken. The thief may have scoped this out prior to taking the bike. My bike has very unique features and upgrades including carbon fiber upgrades, red handlebars, and a small red bag attached to the seat post. The wheels in particular that are black carbon fiber with white letters that say Cosmic on them are very noticeable. Any help is appreciated.
