Stolen 6/18/2015: KHS Urban Xcape, black, medium, wheel size 700c, serial number D12A02793, license number 40944
I left for a trip to the Bay Area Sunday night 5:55pm June 14th and left the bike in the Amtrak covered bike parking. I returned June 18th 12pm and found the bike missing. The spot where the bike had been had no sign of the bike or any bike cable remains. The bike had been locked in place with a braided insulated Avenir cable lock and Kryptonite cable to lock the wheels and baskets. All the older bikes that had been present when I left the bike were gone and only two newer bikes remained. It is possible my bike may not have been the only one stolen from that area.
Bike is a KHS Urban Xcape, black, medium, wheel size 700c, serial number D12A02793, license number 4094460. Bike has a Topeak bike basket carrier rack with two black bike baskets in the back and a front silver bike basket with struts attached to the front wheel frame and bolted to the handle bars. The handle bars have an extender making it taller than the standard model. The seat has a water proof covering with pins holding it in place. The seat has a spring loaded piston, not the standard steel bar. Seat and back baskets are locked in place with kryptonite mini cables and pad lock. Front handle bars have a Topeak Bar Extender for a front light to place the front light over the front basket. The bar extender is the most noticeable feature. Bike is a B&L built bike with a label from B&L bike with my name on it on the main body of the frame.
This bike was my primary mode of transportation and being a student I do not have a car so this loss is significant to me. I am willing to give a $150 reward for information leading to recovery of this bike with ALL the parts and accessories intact. Contact me at: slittle(at symbol)ucdavis.edu

STOLEN NIGHT OF DECEMBER 5, 2013 IN EAST DAVIS - BAKFIETS
My daughter's Bakfiets was stolen from their apartment complex on East 8th Street overnight. It was chained to another bike and a pole in the parking lot with a heavy duty chain. It also has a lock integrated into the rear wheel which can only be unlocked with a key. The other bike was locked to the Bakfiets with a u-lock. Both the chain and u-lock were removed somehow and, curiously, the other bike was left behind. We are beyond sad about this since this is our daughter's only means of transporting her 2 children (1 and 4). As a family we have been car free since 2003 and my children (both adults) have never driven cars, relying solely on public transportation, their feet and bikes. This is like someone stealing a family's only car.
