Chicago Stolen Bike Registry Archives

01/02/2005 => 8/27/06

115 submissions

Go to the new Stolen Bike Registry at

click=>http://stolen.bikechicago.info<=click

(If a search has landed you here please use the "find" feature of your browser to locate the bike by model on this page)

The idea is hopefully simple:

You post all relevant info, and you increase your chances of getting your bike back in three ways:

1) Someone sees your blue cannondale and suspects it's stolen. They google "blue cannondale stolen chicago" and *poof* up pops this page.

2) Your stolen bike report propogates (with our help) to all the major Chicago bike-related e-mail lists. Someone spots your blue cannondale, calls a friend who has quick i-net access, asks them to pull up bikechicago.info (or google "stolen bike chicago" or similar), click on "Chicago Stolen Bike Registry", and get them whatever info they need to contact the owner or convince the police to hold the bike.

3) You offer the opportunity to others to learn from your experience, and good karma will help send your bike back to you.

Important: See Mr Bike's tips on IDing your bike before it gets stolen!

This is a unique bicycle, as it is not available

for sale in the USA. (It was brought over by

its owner, who is from Holland.)

There is only one other Sparta bicycle known to be in the Chicago area,

and it belongs to the owner's wife.

So if you spot a Sparta Athena bicycle,

assume it's the stolen one and call police.

Hi. I just wanted to let you know that I recovered my bike and the Chicago Stolen Bike registry played a major role. I posted the story on craigslist:

http://chicago.craigslist.org/bik/90396703.html

One thing I didn't mention was that the eBay seller was initially skeptical that it was mine, but he looked at the stolen bike registry and saw my listing. So thanks for this wonderful service. Evan

It was originally a Fuji VA Lite... one of the older ones, but ithad a new paint job from last summer so its totally white exceptfor some camoflauge duct tape (probably removed by now). Youcan't even read the serial number off the bottom of it and Inever put the tin label back on.

Black "Edge" cranksets

Mavic open pro wheel in the front with a Paul Mallard (sp?) hub (it also says D. Vogt in sharpie on the rim), Surly flip-flop in the back with a Soma cog on one sideand a Dura-Ace one on the other. Both wheels have gray trimmed Serfas tires. The bottom bracket is a Shimano (not Ultegra orDura-Ace). It

Pyramid plastic toe clips and straps with blackmtn bike pedals.

Ritchey-Logic headset.

There is a front-brake on the rider's left handle.

What was the bike locked to:

Bike rack outside of Jewel-Osco

General condition of bike:

It was a well cared-for track bike;

There are a couple of things someone might bring it into a shop for:

- the handlebar is aluminum and has a bent on the rider's right side from an accident.

- the handlebar tape is totally worn and needs to be replaced the original color is a gray, and the bars are profile design.

- the headset is loose. it would need to be tightened for sure in a few weeks if its at all ridden often.

- the wheels need to be trued, especially the back.

- the saddle lost its liner and is just hard plastic now.

I believe it to be done by someone in my building (the garage is locked to the outside world). I believe this means that either I will see them around the building (and they would have to be huge to ride it) or they will try to sell it. I have proof of purchase if necessary to confirm.

Other comments: I know the kid who took my bike. When I was parking the bike he asked incoccently for the time. I locked my bike and walked down the path. Then I forgot something and started to walk back when I saw him near the rack. I did not want to believe he would take my bike so I took a longer route to get to the rack and when I made it through the building my bike was gone.

ate Stolen (please include time of day): JULY22-23 (i was away for the weekend)

Other distinguishing features, serial number if avail.:

Amateur BLUE paintjob, black handlebars/seatpost/cranks, 16.5"

I mounted a set of Rock Shox, and the headset looks funky, there is a half inch aluminum spacer to make it all tight. After mounting the shocks on it that didnt match, I painted the whole thing a really bright metallic blue, carefully taping all the letters. then jumped the gun clearcoating it, so the blue ran all over from the letters. looks sorta cool and messy, but definately a noticable characteristic if you spot it. It has black straight handlebars, and black foam grips. black plastic pedals, one broken. oh, also while i was painting it, some plastic blew against it in the wind and messed up the paint on the horizontal bar behind the left pedal. (clearly an amateur job...im no pro here) thats definately noticable. aluminum kickstand that "boooooongs" over bumps n stuff. shifts poorly thru 3-5 gear. thumb lever shifters.stolen from my apartment a couple doors down from Rapid Transit Cycle Shop, while i was away for the weekend. again, the bike is a really bright metallic blue (previously black), the bars are black, and the letters are a dark navy.

Also, there is a cable lock wrapped to it, silverish, combination, and i know the combo.

This isn't a stolen bike report per se but I've heard a lot about other ripoffs at the blue line stop. Perhaps a warning should go out since there's always a dozen or so bikes locked down there. And the Montrose bus stops running in mid-evening so people coming off the Blue Line have no option but to bike.
