I just had my bicycle stolen tonight.  It was a 1986 Raleigh Marathon 53cm converted to a fixed gear with bullhorn bars.  Some details here. Any information or assistance in recovery would be appreciated. More info and a picture here.

Bicycle Boulevards "pop-up" public meeting

Comment by Marian Boutet on July 27, 2014 at 9:08pm

Bicycle stolen from the middle block of Melrose Street about 1:00 pm today.  It's a Schwinn 10-speed, light blue with new tires (beige sidewalls).  Please watch for him and for the bike, and call 911 - wow these cameras are great!
