Stolen Bikes: Montana Sport, Redline, Trek Alpha & Raleigh

From Craigslist:

My white Montana sport 10 speed mountain bike was stolen on Feb. 2nd around 8:30AM, near speedway/harrison. It is all white, black handles and black seat. Says Montana Sport down the diagonal middle bar. It’s a woman’s mountain bike. If you have any information about my bike, or see it, please email me.

Thanks!

Stolen early this week chrome Redline 24″ cruiser. Any info would be helpfull!!! reward if returned. Call ED 850-1052

From Craigslist:

I had a VERY LARGE black Trek 4500 alpha stolen from infront of Walgreens on Speedway and Country Club. The grips were black, but had green masking tape over them. Please help! I am 6’7″ and I think the bike was somewhere around 62cm or 25″, something like that! If you even see it on the streets, please let me know. I WILL find this bike, and its infuriating because I just had my ipod touch stolen as well. Thanks to all help!

From Craislist:

Some misguided soul stole my silver Raleigh mountain bike and left a single speed ( “fixie” style) flat bar bike with a blue Raleigh frame in its place. The blue framed bike might have been stolen too. If you can describe the bike that was left, well enough to prove that it belongs to you, we can arrange to get it back to you. If you just wanted to trade bikes for a while and want to return the mountain bike and get your bike back, fine. Email , leave a phone number and I’ll call you.

The bike exchange was my post to craigslist. I got 1 sympathy response from a UA chemist who had the same thing happen to him a few years ago. He said that the bike that was left was almost as good as the one that was stolen and that he's still riding the trade-in to work.

Wow - I can't say I've ever heard of someone leaving a bike in place of the one they are stealing. Anyone else heard of or experienced that?
