CHS neighbor niemcziek posted about a weekend burglary that netted what its owner told police is a very special bicycle:
Two high-end bicycles were reported stolen from a secure building on 16th and Mercer the morning of Saturday, December 31st. The bicycles were located inside of a locked storage room, one locked and one unlocked. The burglar also helped themselves to a pair of new Sidi cycling shoes. Combined value of the gear is estimated at over $10,000. There were no signs of forced entry to the room or to the building. One of the bicycles (a custom Seven Mudhoney make/model) is VERY unique with an easily indentifiable argyle paint scheme (see pics). The other is a red 2010 Specialized Allez Elite with a white saddle and handlebar tape. Any information you have or if you spot either of these bikes please let us know.
The SPD report on the burglary is below. The officer speculates that it could have been an inside job. If you’ve seen the bike, give East Precinct burglary detectives a call at (206) 684-5733.
