    Welcome to Spokane Valley....

    Warning: Rant to follow.

    Dammit.
    Last night had 3 of 4 of our bikes stolen.
    Moved to GEG-valley with Mrs. D. because of work last month. Bikes locked, out of sight. Still no protection. Could have left 'em outside with a $20 bill taped to 'em and no one would have taken 'em where I was in ID. Live and learn.

    If anyone sees a silver Epic Marathon (2006-ish) or a yellow Schwinn Moab disc (2001) please p.m. me. Well, if there is a bright side (and it is a small bright side) - I kinda wanted to get a new full-squish XC. Got a reason to shop now.
    I was gonna stop by and see you, but the Jehovas witnesses came by. When they left I started drinking. Voicemail from Paul

    Sorry that happened... but yep, I hate to say it, bike theft appears to be rampant in this community, if my FB feed is any indication. I have friends who have had cables cut inside their garages, cables cut on racks in very small time windows, cars broken into and bikes removed....I'm totally paranoid now.

    The valley is rampant with bike thieves. Too many crackheads.

    Not just the valley. The thefts I listed happened South Hill ( cables cut in garage) Downtown (bike cut off rack) and N side ( windows broken, bike removed).

    Thanks Formica - gotta get used to life in the big city.
    Any favorite shops in the area?
