  1. Some more info in the narrative would improve the educational value of these posts.

    Red Star gets the impression that only the front wheel (and tire, obviously) was u-locked to the rack. If that’s accurate it would have been a simple matter for the thief to loosen the front brake and the quick release skewer and walk off with the bike or put it in the trunk of a waiting car, blowing off the front wheel.¬† That’s the wrong way to secure a bike…two u-locks (one securing the frasme and rear wheel) would have been better. Or, ideally and if possible, bring the bike inside at night. (yes, it’s true, Red Star slept with his surfboards years ago in SoCal)

    In any case, if the victim is a student living away from home, the parents’ homeowners policy may cover the loss…a couple phone calls on Tuesday might clear that up.
