I would like to take a moment to thank Krissy for her not-needed, but extremely generous and much appreciated gift she gave to Hunt and me. About a year ago we were driving through the North End and saw someone riding a Surly Cross-check of which was reported stolen to us at the shop earlier that week. I hate bike thieves and so does Hunt.
We whipped the car right in front of the guy riding the Surly and confronted him about the bike. Apparently he “bought it for fifty bucks” and was “gonna need that cash”. “Ha-ha and LoL” were our responses; essentially. We told him we’d run it by the police and check the stolen bike log, and that if he wanted to come by the shop to verify ownership, he was completely free to do so. He didn’t want much to do with the bike anymore all of a sudden.
So long story short, we reunited Krissy with her long lost friend and were rewarded with the headiest dozen of bombers (beer, fool) available. I’m currently drinking one that’ll be this week’s brew review. Thank you so much Krissy for the card and beers. Honestly, we just hate seeing bikes go missing and can sympathize with the feeling of loss. We have the same relationships with our bikes and the more I’d hear about bikes being stolen when I was working at the shop, the more intense my locking strategy would get.
Thanks you again for the beer. The card was very nice too 😀 Here’s to Doing The Right Thing.
PS. If you have a bike stolen, feel free to email us: firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, be sure to report it to the police and call your local bike shops as well. Comb Craigslist and eBay.
