My Bike Was Stolen =(

This past weekend (July 13-16) I was out of town. Friday morning before my wife went to work she noticed a bike left in our yard. Odd, but nothing too surprising. She didn’t go into our garage all weekend. Today, as I was going to make my run to the bank, I opened our garage and could not find my bike. I remember specifically placing it toward the front of the garage, since I knew I was going to be gone all weekend. Checked the side door, and sure enough it looked like someone had gone in through our side door. It must not have locked or something.

Trek 7300fx
This isn’t my bike, but it looks just like it.
Here’s an actual picture of my bike, more amusing picture

So now I’m without my beloved Trek 7300FX. It was my first bike that I bought, and it cost a lot. If anybody notices it, let me know, unfortunately it’s a mass produced bike so there’s others with it. But if you notice something around Calhoun Area, just let me know. Hopefully I can be on a new road bike by August. I’m really-really-really bummed.

    My condolences. I lost a Trek 2 years ago. Someone stole it while it was locked up to the bike rack at work during braid daylight! Just snipped the chain, and I don’t know how they got my U lock.

    Maybe it’ll turn up for sale on Craigslist. I bought a bike off craigslist last summer. I thought from the ad that the seller was a non-native English speaker. Turns out it was some 12-year-old kid who had about five bikes listed at any one time. I’m sure he was supporting his family in some way. I didn’t even want to know how he came to have all these bikes.

    SAD! I’m so sorry to hear that.

    I’m sure Karma will catch up with him or her;)

    My wife’s bike was stolen in CARAG, too- Wednesday the 12th. Our bikes are on our three season porch, but I often don’t lock the door if I’m home. Well, I WAS home, working in the yard, and someone walked in & took her blue-green Specialized Allez, all customized with Campy triple! You can’t even see the bikes from the street, either.
    She doesn’t want a new bike, she wants hers back. It’s her commuter, her tourer. Got her helmet, packs & all that too.
    See it at

    Yeah, I’m patrolling craigslist as we speak… who wants to check out some bikes on Lagoon and Hennepin ;)
