re: Pittsburgh Stolen Schwinn Collegiate (recovered!) - Help from Pee-wee Herman
I've owned some fantastic bikes in my time. And had some of them stolen (well, and one wrecked too). Many hundreds of dollars that I won't see again. About all you can do is keep it out of sight, and as secure as you can make it. You have all my sympathies, for what it's worth. I hope, wish, and even pray, that somehow that bike comes back to you. You don't deserve to have to start over.
