The Chainlink

I found a bike in front of The Oasis (Pratt and Sheridan) last night/early this morning that was leaned against a pole for at least twenty minutes with no one watching it. I brought it home in an attempt to find it's rightful owner. If you were up there and lost a bike, let me know. If you can describe it, I'd be more than happy to get it back to you.

Bump.

I'd really like to get this bike to it's owner. It has been loved, and I'm certain the owner misses it.

I should also mention that I took it after twenty minutes because some sketchy dudes walked up and started talking about taking it. My wife was with me, so I said that it was hers and went home. I wasn't just trying to get a free ride, and I'm not interested in any reward other than the joy of finding the rightful owner of this bike.

Could have been stolen, or stolen and changed hands a bunch of times before being left.

Did you search here:

Yeah, I did.

I suggest putting up a flyer there (ask first), and let the bartenders know (Gigi, especially), in case someone comes and asks about it. 

Thanks for making such a conscientious effort to find the owner.

It might be worth your while to set up a google alert for "stolen [make] [model] Chicago."

I haven't printed a flyer yet, but April and Eric are friends of mine and they know. I haven't seen Gigi in a while.

I search those terms daily. Still nothing.
