    Exclamation Have you seen this bike?

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    Last seen: in my garage in Seattle, February 4th
    Color: candy apple red
    Make: Rodriguez
    Year: ~2002
    Frame size: 42 cm
    Components: Shimano Ultegra
    Wheelset: 650 C Bontrager, with purple spoke nipples
    Pedals: Speedplay Frog clipless (photos pre-date these)
    Seat: Serfa women's gel
    Accessories: Cateye headlight, Avocet cycling computer, patch kit, rearview mirror; but what I really care about is the FRAME!

    As a petite woman, it is very difficult to find a bike that fits! If you see this bike, please, please, please let me know when/where you saw it. If someone tries to sell it to you, be aware that it is stolen property.

    I will be eternally grateful to anyone who can provide information as to the whereabouts of this bicycle.

    Thank you!

    I would suggest you get this info out to your LBS. Also, regularly check craigslist and ebay.

    put in a police report too.

    Not only check craigs list but put in ad of lost bike.

    Put in a report at your local police station with pic.

    Also, put in a word in at local radio station to announce.

    I am sorry to hear of this. Very sad! People need to keep their hands off others things.
    We live in a society that teaches and allows people to do what they want and when they want, these days. Self control is lacking.

    Alert Recycled Cycles, too. www.recycledcycles.com And I assume you already put a "stolen" note on your National Bike Registry entry? www.nationalbikeregistry.com I doubt the thief would try to take it back to R+E, but it doesn't hurt to make sure Smiley and the rest know the bike was stolen.

    Good luck!

    Good advice already and I'm sure that you've alerted R&E, right? Dan, Scott, Smiley et al usually make sure to recommend registering every bike that they build or sell with the Seattle PD...I'll keep an eye out for it, as it's unique enough - sizing and color - that it should be pretty conspicuous...I have a Rodriquez too and couldn't bear to have it taken...hang in there.

    I'll be on the lookout for it.
    they stole it out of your garage? May I ask what part of town you live in?

    Put it on Cascade's stolen bike list too! http://www.cascade.org/Community/stolenbikes/index.cfm

    and put your posting on their message board as well

    You can search all craigslists by doing a google search such as

    Rodriguez bike site:craigslist.org

    It will then only search craigslist listings. I hope it shows. Out of your garage! The nerve of some people!

    Thanks everyone

    . . . for all the advice and support! The guys at R+E have been very supportive. The downside is I'm the second owner of this bike and neglected to write down the serial number or register it. I guess I figured I'd get around to it eventually. I had three guys at R+E trying to track down the serial number based on what I knew about the first owner(s) and the history of the bike, and of course they were able to get a lot of info just from the pictures I had . . . but no luck.

    I guess my other takeaway lesson is this: even if you store your bike in a secure location, lock it down to something!

    The police do have the bike's info, but I don't want to "scare" away someone who might have a change of heart . . . I just want to believe someone will do the right thing.

    I will definitely, definitely add all your suggestions to my list!

    The person who asked what part of town I live in: it's sort of the area where Wallingford and Green Lake overlap. Key words: Tangletown, where Honey Bear used to be, just a couple blocks up from the Good Shepherd Center/Seattle Tilth. Pretty close to the 50th St./I-5 on ramps.

    Thanks again all, you're beautiful!

    I used to live there. M and R produce was next to Honey Bear, and I bought lots of nice fruits and veges there. Of course, that was 20 years ago...

    the Tangletown pub (Elysian brew co.) is really popular with cyclists...maybe pop some pics/alerts up there and at Zoka, if possible? Nothing wrong with turning up the heat on the thief, if they hang out there too...?

    I saw your flyer at gasworks today and thought of another place you could look.

    I just checked, it's not there; but it's another resource. Good luck.
