Tampa: Stolen Bike Alert!

I just got a message from bicycle advocate extraordinaire Alan Snel…his bike was stolen today in south Tampa. In fact, the bike was so new that he hadn’t even gotten to snap a photo of it, so he provided a description:

White aluminum Ridley road frame with red lettering and red water bottle cages.

Black handlebar tape and saddle.

Police Unity Tour saddle bag.

Bontrager rear wheel.

50-53 CM small frame.

If you see the bike, please let Alan know by dropping him a line at alansnel[at] or by calling Officer Curtis Adkins of the City of Tampa Police at 813-276-3200.

    The good news is that Ridley’s aren’t super common.

    i can’t help, but would like to offer my condolences. i’ve suffered two thefts. neither made any sense. the last was a beater bike. i hated the bike, but i still haven’t gotten over the loss.

    The epidemic continues…last night City Bike Tampa was the victim of a smash and grab by the douche in this image taken from one of our in store security cameras:

    He got away with one 2010 Kona Worldbike (3 sp internal). Pics of the bike are here:

    If you see one of these around town being ridden by the inked up loser in that pic, please give a call to TPD, they have the s/n of our bike.
