I'm pretty sure the idiots were drunk and hanging out beneath the complex next to mine (which is where I store my bike), because there was a pile of burnt matches next to the bike rack. I think they had broken my chain (they couldn't have cut it) 'cause signs of my chain were nonexistent -- and yes, I was going to get a U-Lock this weekend and no, my bike was neither insured or registered (something I was also going to do this weekend).
I'm also pretty sure that I was not the only victim, as another bike was left lying on the lawn next to my complex, abandoned -- I'm assuming the bike was either unrideable, or they heard someone coming.
So my question is -- am I supposed to report this to UWPD? I know for a fact that they can't do anything about it -- or won't do anything about it, because my bike wasn't registered, and it's probably being sold on the black market or something, but I'm wondering if this will press them to put out a notification informing the residents to look after their bikes, or at least to send around extra patrols at night.
Also, where's a good place to buy a bike? o.o I know Performance is on Roosevelt -- do they have pretty good prices? I also know of a bike shop on the Burke-Gilman, near Nordheim and U-Village. Anyone buy a bike from there?
Thanks for reading this long post!
