The Cierra 2000 from the post below was stolen. From out front the train station. I somehow thought that the area was high-traffic enough that a cable-lock would be enough. It wasn’t 😦 It was a really nice and thick cable too. Gone.
1. U Locks ONLY.
2. Continue to research GPS/radio transmitters, design lojack for bikes.
I updated craigslist posting to “Stolen” with pics, filed a police report, a report on the fantastic Chicago Stolen Bike Registry, and posted to the Chainlink forum with pics. I have high hopes for this one, since the frame has unique decals. Hopefully it’ll be as it was in Japan, when I was able to steal my bike back from the thief. Man, that was one of my finer moments 🙂
