Stolen BMX bike: black Sunday Forecaster

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

My Sunday Forecaster was stolen from Muir Lake Apartments in Cedar Park. I kept it out front in al alcove thinking it was safe since this is a nicer area with a gate.

Learned my lesson. At least it wasn’t my mountain bike.

 Its black, like new, with pegs on the left. Here’s a picture.

If I am not mistaken this guy posted this one before the theft.

Are the tires the same? If someone is selling a bike for $300 it is unlikely that they would switch out the tires.

Tires are the same. Both pics show the valves lined up with emblems on the tire, pegs come right off, scratches on black bikes are easily fixed with a sharpie or nail polish. If it were my bike in question I'd be going to check it out.

Thanks for the advice. Im going to contact the guy to take a look at it. Any advice for how to do that? Maybe just act interested and not say too much?

Write down you're serial number and take it with you. If it matches, knock him the fuck out and get your bike back.

Listen to some Pantera on your way there if you need to.

 Hug him and ask politely for your bike back, only hug him around the neck, with a firm hold.

I just noticed the bars are different for https://offerup.co/rkekfBdn8X

those are two piece but mine were 4 piece

Not ruling it out yet

i found my serial number. I’m going to look pretty funny squinting at serial numbers on bikes I check out. all sellers will find that very suspicious. Ah well.

If the guy didn't steal the bike he won't mind you looking at the serial #. If he starts acting sketchy, don't get get into it physically with him. Just say "there's an online database of stolen bikes and I am not interested in buying anything that the cops can take from me. If it is hot, I'M the one out the money and the bike. If it's clean we have a deal and I'll swing back tomorrow to get it."

You've got his cell#, right?

Not yet. He responded to my initial “is this still available” then I expressed being very interested and asked for more photos. Haven’t heard back from him yet unfortunately.
