Stolen in Seattle

I hate getting emails like this: 

 I’m sending my sad story to all bike places/people in hopes that I get my ride back. My bike was stolen today. I’m near Queen Anne/Interbay and thought maybe someone might see it go by. It’s an 80’s lugged steel Trek road bike with special custom powder coat, sparkle orange.
Thank you friendly local bike blog!!!


More info from Betsy:

1987 Trek 400 Elance 50 cm-ish (I don’t know the exact size, but right around 50)
Powder Coated Orange Sparkle
7 speed bar end shifters 105 group
Sugino crank set triple

I know of at least a handful of bikes recovered through posting to the blog and social media and then concerned citizens keeping an eye out and being vigilant- so this is hopes of good results.

Death to bike thieves.

    Sorry for your loss. My bike was stolen from the Fremont/Ballard area on March 23 too! I tweeted to, Seattle Police, and made a CL ad. There’s a thief out there that must be caught! Ill let you know if i find out anything. It feels like part of my soul was just taken.
