On a business trip on Tuesday, I commuted on my red 2015 Fuji Sportif 1.1D (with Mavic Ksyrium Pro Disc wheels) from Silver Spring, MD to Chevy Chase, MD. After being told there was no way I would be allowed to keep my bike inside during the conference, I locked it with a big-ass cable lock (dumb, I now know) to a rack at the intersection of Wisconsin Ave and Western Ave. (map: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1UnUVWkFipNcm_PxNr9SQ1gyGZFA&usp=sharing)
I checked on it periodically throughout the day, but was unable to get out between noon and 3pm. When I did get out at 3, the bike was gone. I called the police; I called mall security. I put the two together and shared all the relevant details with both: serial number, description, value, etc. Both were less-than-optimistic that I would ever see the bike again.
This was the bike back in June. The only things that have changed since then were the seat (still black, but now a Fizik Arione) and the rack, which is now a Topeak BabySeat II Disc. If you see it, please call the Montgomery County, MD police: 240-773-6700. The case number is 16053593. The real telling attribute will be MY NAME emblazoned on both sides of the top tube, right behind the stem.
