I locked it up nice and tight outside Union Station Late saturday night because Metra wouldn't allow me to board with it cause of over crowded train due to Air/Water Show. when i came back for it early tuesday morning, it was gone. no lock, nothing. It had my florecent green aerobe frisbee locked w/it. frisbee had in red ink...my name, cell#, and names of all the dogs in my life. and it read...Chicago's Favorite Dogsitter! The flexible fende had bumper stickers all over it. One read in black/white...FREETHEWEED. I feel numb today! So Sad! I feel like i lost one of my limbs...so incomplete! paid $1200.00 and i still owe $700.00. It did have the wheel locks on it. Please keep and eye/ear out for my bike. No...i never got around to regestering it. I kick myself in the ass! Anyone have an extra bike i can barrow for Critical Mass next week? :(
Carl brings up a good point. Given the quality of your bike, if all you used was your Kryptonite EVO lock (in addition to the skewers), that's not enough -- provided the circumstances in which you left it. Take it as a lesson learned, invest in a Kryptonite New York Lock or better (or two), and try not to leave your bike even overnight someplace like that again.

I agree, I should have just left it @ a friends near by. I want to blame metra, but...
