Condition of Bicycle / Distinguishing Features:
It's a beater of a mountain bike, with a gel seat with a tattered cover, glow-in-the-dark handlebar grips and a front wheel that's been painted several different colors. The frame is aluminum or perhaps an alloy - very light. It had a seatpost bag containing hand cream, a clear plastic poncho, chap stick and one of those string backpacks. Bike answers to the name of Fury, which basically describes the only emotion I am currently capable of feeling.
How was the lock defeated?:
Lock is missing, along with the bike.
What was the bike locked to?:
Which type of area was your bike stolen from?:
Sidewalk in front of an open business.
How was the bike locked?:
Only the frame was locked a solid object.
How long was the bike locked in this location?:
Bike was locked there about one hour, gone when we returned to it.
Bike was locked to a city bike lock at the corner of E. Jackson Blvd and S. Michigan Ave., on the sidewalk right by a Divvy station. No other bikes were locked there, but we figured it would be safe enough. When we returned, we saw that the bike was missing, along with one helmet that had been locked to the bike. The thieves left the other helmet clipped to the bike rack, as a nasty taunt.
