Locking descriptionCable lock
Locking circumventedThis bike was one of six stolen from Dandelion Bikes on Monday May 15th at 4:25am. Four people used a U-Haul truck and a large chain to bust our front doors open. With two angle grinders, they were able to grab six bikes in about two minutes.
Don’t cry for us. We are fully insured. Using all of the video footage, we have already identified our weaknesses and set up additional locks and booby trapping. These guys were looking to clean us out, and they only got six bikes. I consider that a win.
We are not expecting to see these bikes advertised in Seattle. Most likely, these will end up in another west coast city on OfferUp.
If you are one of the thieves reading this, I gotta say you guys looked really prepared when you started running in with grinders a’blazing, but god if you weren’t sloppy and disorganized once you started trying to roll bikes out of here. You really gotta practice that stuff together! Also, you guys are dressed like crap for this kind of stuff. A couple of you had to keep pulling up your pants. Get some active wear that fits!
