Ben explains his plight:
I am one of the residents displaced from my home by a fire at the restaurant Maverick a little bit ago. While most of my stuff survived the fire a little damp and smokey, in the time between the fire and when the building inspector said it was safe to return to the building to sift through our belongings, sub human scum broke into the units and took everything of value. While most of my stuff can be easily replaced the one thing that hurt the most was the theft of my beloved red bike. It’s a Surly Cross Check with the stickers removed. It has Paul brakes. In the rear there is one black brake arm and one silver one from a crash. The stem has an organic apple sticker on it that never fell off. Four years ago I used it to ride from Philadelphia PA out here to SF and it has a lot of sentimental value and I love her. I know it’s a long shot but if you guys could spread the word of this I would really appreciate it. And maybe she’ll find her way back to me.
