More stolen bikes in Hoboken

Have you seen this Diamonback bike in Hoboken?

Bikes are getting stolen more and more often in Hoboken these days, and Hoboken411 reader Joe is wondering if you’ve seen his sweet bike (valued at $400) which was nicked this week. Might as well spread the word.

“I have yet another Hoboken stolen bike story for you. My white Diamondback Insight 2 bike was stolen from a locked garage (where it was locked to a pipe) at 1st and Grand.

The bike didn’t even have a seat, which I keep in my apartment. Whoever stole it used bolt cutters to damage the lock (which they left behind). The bike is not exceptionally common, so I was wondering if you can have your readers keep a look out if they see something similar for sale around town.

The exact bike and color can be found below bikereviews.com.

Also, the serial number of the bike is v9yk27275. Figure the chances are slim, but its worth a shot as this will likely turn up for sale somewhere nearby. Thank you.”

    Had my bike stolen from the bike rack at the NYSC on 14th Street. It was a Cannondale F400, Very rare bike. Bike was locked up pretty good. Only at the gym for maybe 35 minutes…came back and gone. Not cool. After a quick Google search of “bike theft Hoboken” it it is clear that bike theft is a major problem in Hoboken.

    Wondering if it’s worth filing a police report…

    I recently watch three online videos about locking bikes, and then graded the bikes I passed in town. Most got Ds of Fs.

    Google “Hal Grade Your Bike Locking”.

    Locking your bike is like running from a bear. You don’t have to out run the bear you just have to outrun some else. You bike just has to be less attractive to thief.

    I have also read that some drug dealers will take bikes as payment then sell them to restaurants.
