That is a complete drag! I will keep a lookout for it.
I've been lulled into a false sense of complacency because I figured nobody would want my slow, heavy dutch bike. Finding out about this was the wakeup call I needed.
Hope the bike makes it back to its owner. Just posting a link in case it hasn't been mentioned here before: http://vancitybikewatch.ca/main. Post your stolen bike here so others can also be on the lookout.
