Stolen! 4300 Trek Bike (Black / Orange) (Grand Forks)

6th at cottonwood

I am sad to say :( my bike was stolen from my garage on the 18th or 19th of July. Its a Black and Orange Trek bicycle almost new condition. Slightly broken front reflector/water bottle/ water bottle holder/ and updated bigger seat on bike.

I am hoping somebody just took it for a joy ride and it turns up somewhere!

If you see this bike please let me know!

Found: GT Outpost Trail.  It's been sitting (unlocked) in the same place for at least two days, so I'm wondering it was "borrowed" and the owner doesn't know where it is.

Reply with the color of the bike and the saddle and I'll let you know the location.

Hey Mick... thanks for keeping an eye out. Hopefully if someone knows who's it is, we can get it sorted out.

Hey guys-
A buddy of mine in the Forks told me that last week his mtn bike was stolen.  Im not sure on the details, but it was a green Gary Fisher Tassajara that is several years old.  I know its a long shot but let me know if you have any info.

And if your budget is really small, I have a women's schwinn 26" (cheap bike) that my wife never uses.   

It looks like:

Current version:

The thing has been used like a half dozen times and has been kept in a shed for its life.  Basically new.  You can have it for $75?

sorry, no pictures and the lock was rolled up in the basket. We read your handy notes about "go and take a picture now" and "write down the serial number" AFTER it was gone. Our bad, we know. We are thinking of getting a K-mart lady's "Cruiser" bike to replace it for the summer. Up until it disappeared we rode together every day--not much, just up and down the coulee, but it made for a pleasant exercise.


Bill thats awful. What type of budget do you have? And where are you located (In Grand Forks possibly?)... Terry at SBS may be able to work something out so you don't have to go the "crappy bike" route...

Let us know what we can help out with... tell Terry that UND Cycling sent you that way and I'm sure he'll be able to get you a deal. Tell him we insist :lol:

Missing: Red Schwinn coaster-brake "cruiser", picked up at police auction in June 2011, kept at the bike rack inside the Johnstone Fulton Smith courtyard. Distinguished by a nice wicker basket on the handlebar. Not a "valuable" bike by any means, but it was one that my wife finally found the suited her. Newly painted (dark red), no fenders, big springy seat. Checked all the bike racks within three blocks of here, no luck. We'll be here all summer. bill_jancewicz@sil.org

QFT!

This keeps coming up recently, so I want to make a few points.  It seems like every third person I talk to says something to the effect of "I did have a bike up here, but it was stolen last semester."  This is stupid, not because your stuff is getting stolen, but because it happened in the first place.  We have a lot of club members, we know a lot of people, and we can get the word out about your ride if it goes missing.  PLEASE post here if your bike was stolen, if only so we can figure out how predominant this sort of thing is on UND campus (I doubt anyone else is keeping track).

Not blaming anyone for their bicycle getting stolen, just ask that you ask for help if it does.

Some other things to think about:
- If your bike gets stolen, report it to the police (campus or otherwise).  If they don't know what is happening, they can't do anything about it.  Also, if you give them a good description or a photo, they can call you when they recover or find material that may have been stolen.
- Go take a photo of your bike right now (right now!).  Write down the serial number.  Then if it goes missing you have that much more information to give us and the police.
- Buy a lock and use it correctly.  Make sure the lock can't be slipped off the bicycle or the thing to which you're locking it.  You wouldn't believe how many bicycles I could own if I snagged every one I saw on campus that had a cable lock you could just slip off.
- Finally, keep your eye out for suspiciousness (I can't believe spell check is letting that through).  If it looks like someone is messing with a bike, or riding a bike that isn't the right size, or just acting jumpy, call them out.  Chat he or she up about the bike and remember what it looks like, then check here to see if anything is missing.  A physical description of a potential thief could help the police out a lot more.

We now return to what will hopefully remain a quiet thread--but only if this means nobody's stuff is getting stolen.
