Hey Folks,

My Surly Cross Check was stolen last night (wednesday 8/17) around midnight in Polish Hill, Morewood/Gold Way near the Bloomfield Bridge.

It’s a black 49cm Cross Check with a front disk brake, salsa fork, black brooks saddle. If anyone sees this bike, can you please let me know?

that sux. really hope you get it back (not an unreasonable thing to hope for, either, others have gotten bikes back).

I’ll ask, because others will, out of curiosity … locked up how, if at all?

Also, do you plan on filing a police report?

Morgan, So sorry to hear this.

And this is the third or fourth bike stolen from Bloomfield/Lawrenceville in recent days. Be extra careful in where and how you lock your bike these days!

Yes folks, learn from my mistake — I was just saying hi to someone in their yard and left my bike unlocked outside the fence for 15-20 minutes, at night on a quiet residential street — always lock up! I’m kicking myself.

In about 15 years of city riding both here and in NYC, this is my first stolen bike…

awe, man! that still doesn’t make the bike any less yours or in any way justify someone’s taking it. thieves suck.

Hey, just wanted to update that this bike was found a few years ago. It had been painted black, but the guy who sold it didn’t know what a surly was. Then, a guy named Rob Hawk bought it from his friend, the buyer in the previous transaction. Rob noticed it was Morgan’s bike because he knew him from Freeride, which he had explained when he brought it into Thick to get it fixed-up for his girlfriend. Well, Morgan just happened to be coming back through town in a couple weeks, and a mutual friend informed him of this development. Morgan called Rob, and Rob was all, “sorry bro, I can’t give it back, I spent all this money on it.”

Rob knew it was stolen, knew whose it was, and the brosephs at Thick stayed out of it even after learning all this.

Morgan lives on a fucking island or whatever, so it’s not like he’s crying about it, but the whole thing was such a bad look for so many people.

what did you expect Thick to do? b/c they consistently step up in clear-cut stolen bike situations. I don’t get you slamming the bike shop. The owner could’ve called the police (who are the people that handle theft).

I thought broseph was a term of endearment?
