Hey, that's my (emergency repair) bike shop. I never get a claim check either, and I'm always terrified somebody will walk away with my (unlocked) $6000 bicyle. I really need to stop reading this police blotter.
W. Coast Highway, 4500 block: bicycle theft, Oct. 10. The owner of a 50-year-old Larry Biehl custom-built bicycle brought the bicycle to Chicago Bikes to have repairs done and left it with the shop's owner without obtaining a work order or receipt. He returned a few days later and the owner told the victim that he had put the bicycle in front of the shop with other bicycles and it had been stolen. Estimated loss: $1,000.
