    This is a pretty vintage inspired “city” bike. It’s a light turquoise “mint” color. It has brown leather seat and leather wrapped handles. It has hammered aluminum fenders. It also had an aluminum bike basket.

    My bike was stolen around two days ago, I’m really upset that somebody dared to break into a closed parking space and somehow stole the hall bicycle from there. The bicycle is almost new I got it less than one year ago from my parents. It’s silver and the seatpost was changed as well as a seat, so the seat post is silver and seat has a button for a back lighting on a bottom. It also has a phone handler on a frame.

    Attn kmart shoppers.

    I see these posts all the time on our nextdoor neighbor group website. Unfortunately thieves think nothing of entering locked or unlocked backyard areas to steal whatever they can easily find. Including garages, especially gated garages for apts/condos those gates are always open long enough to access.

    So lock up those bikes to something. A big ugly chain will work just fine & not cost that much. Much easier to do while you have the bike…

    The bike is matte black with gray logo texts on frame, and had front and rear lights, a rear kickstand, and a dark metal chain around the seat post with padlocks when stolen (thief likely clipped that).

    The thief stole my bike 2 days ago by clipping my u lock in daylight in front of people and traffic.
