My wife’s bike was stolen yesterday, and even though it’s a longshot, I’d appreciate it if you keep an eye out. Practically, this bike is her primary mode of transportation. Sentimentally, this is the bike she’s ridden from Vancouver, BC to Los Angeles, CA. If nothing else, it would be nice to finish the tour to Tijuana. Details are listed below. Please give me a call at 9328939 (the orange county zone code is 714) if you stumble across it. Thanks!
