My gray Specialized Crossroads was stolen from the Falls Townhouses at 1:40 a.m. today. Two neighbors wakened by a car alarm saw a skinny white guy riding away on it. (Since I'm a skinny white guy, it didn't immediately occur to them that it wouldn't be me at that hour.) In several ways this crossover bicycle is easy to recognize: It has a folding saddle-basket on the right rear, a miniature Share the Road tag on the back of the frame-mounted luggage rack, and the horn of the saddle was mended with duct tape, now a bit ragged. Other detachable features include a mirror, map case and bell on the handlebars, a headlight, a tail light, a tire pump and a frame-mounted clamp for my cable lock.
If you see this bike, please keep your eye on it and call Miami-Dade Police at the Kendall station, 305-279-6929.
