Ok, so I've totally slacked off, and not posted about the rest of OLS2008 yet, but this post is more important than that for now. I was out at the Pride Parade today, then went to meet up with a friend. I locked up my bike at ~17h20, to the racks outside Waterfront Station (I wrote Centre in my Twitter posts, but then realized it was actually Waterfront Station at that spot). I came back at 20h30, to find my bike was gone :-(.
Description: Norco model 7030 (only 95% certain, can't remember exactly), mountain bike. Olive Green and Beige, with some white lines. Front white LED from PlanetBike (batteries quite worn down), no rear light. Stock seat. Rear aluminum pannier rack. Bike lock was an OnGuard Doberman combination lock.
I bought the bike used, almost 3 years ago, from the antiques/junk store on the corner of 31st and Main, for $50. It was probably hot merchandise at the time, but it was a good deal, and in reasonable condition. I've put in probably $50 of maintenance, and the lock+rack were another $40 approximately. Not a lot of money, just enough to be annoying.
