that is really sad.
in toronto it's good to have insurance for the expensive bikes.

Agreed. Being robbed of something that you work so hard for, and need so much is a horrible feeling. I hope this bike is found.

For TO, seven years is a long life. I hope he is found.

I'm going to go ahead and still blame Igor, that piece of shit.

I'm sorry for your loss. I too know the feeling of losing a bicycle to theft. It really is an unfair crime to cyclists.

Yeah, it's a shock, a violation and a bummer. You'll spend hours scanning passing and parked bikes. I lost two bikes before I bought a Stock lock for $100. Haven't had any trouble since.

I'm pretty sure Stock Lock is an Ontario company :)

Stocks Lock is based out of Waterford. There basic U-Lock seems expensive but, I've never had an issue locking my bike up in the 4 years I have had it. It's a good product.
