    rear wheel stolen last night downtown near 3rd and burnside. xtr hub laced to mavic rim. single speed setup with a bunch of plastic cassette spacers on it. bontrager tire if it's still on there.

    Hit me up if a home bum tries to sell it to you. I hear the new spot is under the steele bridge.

    Brad Delay had his SPECIALIZED Seattle Edition? Bike stolen a few weeks ago. Not too sure if it's rare? It's green and white. And it has some small NW like pictures on it. Idk. I guess it needed a tune up and he got another bike, but still. He works at Historic Tattoo if you see anything and want to let him know. Or holler at me on here.

    Been seeing this around lately. Hope this person finds the bikes.

    Bummer, but I dunno if I'd of put the serial number out there for all to know and use it to claim the bike as their own.

    I've still got mine for the bike I bought new.

    And since it's a Cielo, the sales receipt is probably all fancy and suitable-for-framing and shit.

    My gf just asked me to post this one too. Serotta Davis Phinney with full Shimano 600 group. I guess there were 5 other bikes stolen from this person's house as well.
  • DANgerDANger Riding Level: 84
    Owner's name is Kyle and he works at Albina Press up on Hawthorne just up from 50th, next to Sapphire Hotel.
  • jerryjerry Riding Level: 4,339
    man if im spending 5k on a bike the seller better keep a copy of the invoice and serial number.
  • JoshJosh Riding Level: 824
    What part of town was that Serotta taken from?

    Related note: has anyone else heard the conspiracy theory of the underground bike theft network, ran by an obvious piece of shit in north Portland? Apparently there's like a main kingpin kinda guy, who allegedly buys bikes from junkies and shitbags alike, and sells them to people overseas?
  • jerryjerry Riding Level: 4,339
    there was a smuggling operation busted a while back that was sending surly's over to Japan, both stolen and bought from QBP, because they're super popular and super expensive over there
  • JoshJosh Riding Level: 824
    Well this guy has a name like "Billy Bike" or something, and has hired people who will pick up stolen bikes, from whoever steals them, in designated alleys and shit... Allegedly
  • CekteCekte Riding Level: 1,167
    Woah, wtf. More info please
  • JoshJosh Riding Level: 824
    Yeah that's pretty much all I know. Kate said a WBW customer told her all of this. Apparently guy's shit had been stolen a few times, and one day he asked a sketchy dude with an obviously stolen bike, where all the stolen bikes "disappear" to, and sketchy dude spilled the beans. Seems super elaborate and farfetched, and maybe the dude was trippin balls and making shit up, but it would explain where all these bikes randomly disappear to... Except Jerbro's CAAD9
