Did You See This Yellow Bike? It Was Stolen From Roosevelt Island Subway Bike Rack


This Is The Stolen Yellow Bicycle

Received the following message from a Roosevelt Island resident who had the bicycle pictured above stolen from the Roosevelt Island Subway Bike Rack.
Last Tuesday at 9 AM I locked my bicycle in the bike rack near the
subway station, as I usually do every day. Around 7:30 PM, when I
returned, I found only a broken chain on the floor. I communicated the PSD about the situation right away (I heard that this is not the first case). Well, the stolen bicycle is a yellow folding one and it was almost new (I bought it 3 months ago). If you see somebody riding a bike like the one in the pictures, please tell a police officer.

P.S.: I'm living in here since last April, and when I was searching
for an apartment, the rental agent told me that the zip code 10044 is
the safest in NYC :-(

Broken Bike Chain Found on Floor

Bike theft seems to be a growing problem here on RI. A couple weeks ago, one of my bike's tires was stolen as it was locked in the rack behind 30 River Road. The thieves also stole tires from two other bikes parked in the same area.
Why anyone would steal the tire from my old, pretty worthless bike I have no idea.
I suppose it was my fault for not locking both tires...

On Tuesday afternoon I left my bike on the subway rack *unlocked* because I had forgotten my keys at home. I remember coming home uncertain if was going to find my bike there. I picked up my unlocked bike around 5 pm. Probably they stole it after that? or maybe my pink bike wasn't so attractive to the thief.

Since your rental agent told you it was the safest place in NYC, why don't you ask your agent to reimburse you?

I hope you seriously didn't base your decision of using such a lame lock in NYC. It's pretty much common sense that s/he has a conflict of interest when sharing that info with you.

Get a better lock e.g. a chain one!

I am so sorry that your bike was stolen. If you have renter's insurance you can claim the bike and get reimbursed for the current value. After having 3 bikes stolen in NYC I now use a combination of three different locking systems and am happy to report that I have managed to hold onto my current bike for over 12 years. The more time it takes a criminal to steal the bike the less likely they are to steal yours. If you have the cash, spend the money on top-end Kriptonite locks.

Here's what I use:

Kriptonite "New York Fahgettaboudit" chain: https://www.kryptonitelock.com/products/ProductDetail.aspx?cid=1001&scid=1002&pid=1169

The "Evolution, Series 4": https://www.kryptonitelock.com/products/ProductDetail.aspx?cid=1001&scid=1000&pid=1203


And the "KryptoFlex® 1007 Looped Cable 7'" cable: https://www.kryptonitelock.com/products/ProductDetail.aspx?cid=1001&scid=1001&pid=1124

Hope this helps and maybe, just maybe the bicycle Gods will be kind and return that yellow bike of yours.
