This was a sad day for Jake Ricker (Laali), Jacopo Volpe (Dodici), Ryan Schuetze (Go Means Go), and myself (Patrick/PEDAL Consumption). Last night around 11:55PM, we returned to our U-Haul van that was parked a few blocks from the Rotture on MLK & Ash St. Immediately, we noticed the window was broken. Our bikes, two frames w/forks, and several bags were stolen. We know this had to be the work of more than one person. What’s strange is that the thieves didn’t take the third frame w/fork and a rim set. Maybe they had to much to carry… who knows?
