So I walked outside this morning only to find that someone had stolen the fork and handlebar assembly from my bike. I’ve got a couple of questions:
Is it worth reporting to the police? I’ve had success in the past getting stolen bikes back, but this was in a small town and it was an entire bike that was missing.
Is this a common occurance? I always thought I was being very careful by locking it up through the front wheel and the frame and everything.
What’s my best bet for getting a replacement part? Are there online shops you guys use? I can always go to a local shop, but I’d like to do this as inexpensively as possible, and I figure the bike guys on here can give me some tips.
The bike was a fairly new Fuji Roubaix. It’s my own fault for leaving it outside the past few nights, but I wish I could’ve caught the thief in the act. Oh well, live and learn. Any other bike theft stories?
