It’s been nearly a year since Igor Kenk was put of business. Kenk, who is accused of being the city’s most notorious bicycle thief, was charged with 58 offences related to stolen bikes last summer. Police discovered 2,865 bikes stashed in more than a dozen garages around the city and in Kenk’s rundown Queen St. W. repair shop. In the aftermath of the closing of Kenk’s store, The Bicycle Clinic, across from Trinity Bellwoods Park, the question has been out there: Are bike thefts down?
