    Stolen Bike Alert!

    Stolen from Bear Creek Regional Park, Colorado Springs @ 7:15pm Thurs, 11 Jul 2013

    2008 (I think) Trek Fuel EX 5.5. Black with flat pedals and Conti 2.4 tires. Size small.

    My son's. He's pretty broke up as am I--he's my best riding buddy.

    (I know there's a sticky, but not everyone goes there)

    You know there's a sticky at the top of this forum for stolen bike alerts, right?

    Yep--threw it here just in case since not everybody reads the sticky.

    In any case, bike recovered quickly--caught the thief riding it in the park a little over an hour later. All's well.

    Sorry for the interruption

    I would pay some good money to see that.

    Just held him in place until the police arrived. The police were able to get the boy's home phone and they called his dad. I decided letting dad handle it would be the best course. He seemed like a good man and in no way willing to let this slide; the kid may have had an easier time had I decided to press charges and the cops hauled him off. It was really handled as two dads just trying to raise their kids right. The officer from CSPD was excellent as well--calm demeanor, very professional, and a perfect facilitator for us parents.
