Stolen green Rivendell bike

Jordan misplaced his bike on Wednesday. And by misplaced, I mean “misplaced” into the greasy hands of a no-good thief somewhere in the Mission. It was stolen is what I’m saying.

Anyway, he wants it back and was hoping to get the word out:

My incredible Rivendell Atlantis was stolen from me in the mission district on Wednesday. It has a distinct look, especially with the large saddlebag and matching front rack bag I had on it.

This bike has sentimental value to me as a gift from my now-departed grandmother. I have proof of ownership and know the serial number. There is a $200 reward for finding the bike if I’m able to get it back. Any advice on how I might track it down is greatly appreciated as well.

We’ve all been there, and it stinks. Give us a shout if you’ve seen it or know anything, and we’ll put you in touch with Jordan.

  1. This, and things like Allan’s SPCA posts, and many another, are what occur to me when I see pop-up dingbats in the comment section accusing MM of mainly dealing with issues that are not important to the community.

    Oh yeah?!

    Let’s see the local papers run a regular feature on stolen bicycles, with pictures and detailed descriptions. Sure. The newspaper advertisers will be OVERfuckingJOYed to subsidize something like that!

    Gen X fiftysomethings(?) underestimate the incredibly strange sense of misplacement that their skinny euro-cycles incite in the more working class neighborhoods of America’s inner cities, when they plop down there and write their Ph.D. thesis while sipping organic herbal tea in an oddly named cafe. Ironically, they are equally out of place in America’s suburbs and small towns. Woe is them.

      Ph.D candidates write dissertations, and they’re poor as shit, so I guess there just really isn’t anything to your post.

    Vic thank you so much for this post and for helping me track down my bicycle down. Currently I’m pretty hopeful I’ll be able to find the bike, since it’s quite unique. If you’re on the looking, keep in mind it probably won’t have the bags on it anymore.

    I’ll make sure to post here as things unfold with the search!

    Thanks again Vic and all missionmission readers for your help!

    that bike is really nice. that’s the kind of bike I would never lock outside and if I did, a big fat chain.

    Yo, C-Nerd. Hey! Maybe those Gen-X (thirty to fifty somethings) spent their hard-earned scratch to buy that bicycle, don’t own a car and live in a small apartment by meager means, but just love living simply “that much” but like a freaking elegant bicycle. How is that any different from being destitute and droppin’ mad cash on spinning rims? First off, it’s eco-friendly (yeah, eat it.), they’re a lot skinnier than you and it’s just a better investment. So while I write my dissertation, I’ll ponder your lack of sympathy and then give you my own for your ignorance.

  8. Hi, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog in Ie, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other then that, wonderful blog!

    Definitely imagine that that you stated. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the internet the easiest thing to have in mind of.
    I say to you, I definitely get irked at the same time as other people consider issues that they just
    do not realize about. You managed to hit the nail upon the
    highest and also outlined out the whole thing
    without having side effect , other people can take a signal.
    Will likely be again to get more. Thanks
