story on Seattle Bike Blog through a tweet from Jonathan Maus of Bike Portland. Comes with shaky, but riveting phone video, so check it out. Ending: Adored ivory Double Cross with shellaced bar tape recovered and bike owner owes friend many beers.
Don't know how much this story and many others like it influenced Bay Area bike enthusiast, Jenny Oh Hatfield to start a petition on change.org to make including serial numbers mandatory on bike sale listings on eBay or Craigslist. What do you guys think? If you think its a good idea, go sign the petition today.
