    Damn man . . . that friggin' sucks. Make sure you file a police report. And you might be in luck . . . if it was in fact stolen from your car, guess what? It's covered by your auto insurance policy.
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    Already checked with my car insurance. The policy is that unless it's installed permanently in the car, it's not covered. I'm screwed. Gonna keep an eye out. Feel totally burned.

    Re: Stolen Bike

    to insure a bicycle, one option is to find a carrier that can insure it, can't remember the name of the company i am thinking of, but a Google search will help. another option is to schedule it with whoever provides your home insurance. it will cover it no matter where it gets stolen

    What I meant was that nothing in the car is covered unless it's permanently installed. A phone, purse, bike - not covered. A stereo - covered.

    That's REALLY weird . . . who's your carrier? Check with your homeowners/renters as well.

    I'd be bummed too man . . . I feel you. I've had a bike stolen too.

    Sure was. I assume 90% of the responsibility for this. Not covering myself, leaving the bike in plain sight, having been broken into before... I'm an idiot, and I know it. Still, f*cking sucks.

    If I had $100 for every time someone said something which pities me, I'd have enough for a full XT group. Thanks guys - I'll be sure to mourn with with you when your stuff gets jacked.

    Stolen Bike

    I remember a kind of stolen bike registry coming up on this forum once or twice, but not sure which it was. Anyone have any success using that?

    Have checked craigslist a few times but haven't seen anything. You might also want to check out the SF and SD craigslists too, I've heard stolen bikes can make there way out of their original city pretty quickly to avoid being found.
