The photo is from a reader reporting an e-bike theft: “My partner had his brand-new bike stolen from our storage at the Huxley [Fauntleroy/Edmunds] over the weekend. It’s a $1,700 bike, still in the box. He uses this bike for work as a courier. If anyone has any leads, please, please let us know.” It’s a black RadCity Step-Thru. The placeholder report # is T20021439.

    Get it on Bike Index right away – and also post it on the Seattle Area Stolen Bikes facebook page! Other information would be helpful: like how many miles/hours are on it. Also, watch OfferUp and Craigslist and set up alerts; use multiple search terms, as most of these drugged-up thieves cannot spell (or they purposefully don’t list the brand)

    Register it as stolen quick on bikeindex website! Your receipt or bike shop should have the serial no. if you did not record it already.

    If not found, hopefully there is renters insurance to fall back on.

    Having a bike stolen sucks, $1,700 is more than the cost of an older model used car!

    I’m so sorry…wonder if one of your neighbors was watching when you put it in the storage locker.  So sad.

    Hasn’t that new building has multiple break-ins since it opened just a few years ago. Sounds like the building needs to spend some more money on security and cameras.

    We have a Bike Index success story (thanks to a vigilant neighbor) so it is possible to get stolen bikes back through that registry.  This is a good reminder to take photos and write serial numbers down.  I am so sorry this happened to you!  As an ebike commuter I know how devastating this would be.  😢

    Check OfferUp….there is a post a couple of days ago…may not be the same but may be a lead.
