LETTER: I hope you enjoy my bike

Bike theft wrecks reader’s day

To the bike thief who stole my bicycle on the night of Friday, June 28.

You must be a professional. You should be commended. This bike has been locked to the metal railing for two weeks. After knocking on my door around 10 p.m., no rousing, you cut the railing with tin snips. Not too much damage.

So you got a 21-speed mountain bike, professional seat, plastic fenders, new hand grips, and near-new pedals put on by professional bike mechanics.

You have now, no doubt, found the rear tire flat. I was going to take the bike to the fix-it shop Saturday morning.

Too bad you didn’t wait a day. Did you find the GPS tracking device yet? Just kidding.

So, enjoy the bike. You deserve it. I didn’t, after putting about $700 into it.
