July 6: New on the Stolen Bike Listing

New Avenir Red Folding Bike (Bloor & Bathurst)

I bought the bike at Bathurst Cycle at 2 pm this afternoon (Sun. July 5, 2009) and it was stolen locked up outside Sushi on Bloor (Bloor east of Bathurst) less than 30 minutes later.

I am suspicious that it was an inside job done by the bike store. Sold me a crappy lock and then someone followed me. When I went back to Bathurst Cycle they were so unsympathetic it made me cry.

I have reported it stolen to the police.
