another stolen bike..
Grrrr. My son got his bike stolen in Chelmsford the other day. Locked, with a U-lock to an iron gate. They pulled the whole gate off the hinges and walked with the package. Dedicated thieves.
The bike was old but loved. I don't know that anyone will ever see it but...
Red Access aluminum frame-small!. Manitou carbon fiber fork-don't remember the model; an old one for sure, single speed with a singlator, Answer Carbon bars, Avid BB7 front disc, NO rear brake. Wheels were junk, shod with basically an aggressive street tire, flat pedals.
My kid absolutely loved this bike. It was not only his only mode of transportation but his sanity. We are keeping a close eye on Craigslist but if anyone else sees something...
On another note, Sean has diddly for cash but I really would like to get a ride for him. If anybody has suggestions of nice inexpensive bikes, or used parts I could buy towards a building a replacement. He loves the SS and the negligible weight of his old bike but compromises are what life is all about.
