What I was hinting at was you may just have to go there and look and see if your bike is there just with different parts but again if you do find a good deal scoop it up…
If not contact your insurance company and have them handle it…look at it as a great way to build a new bike.
Many bike shops will write up an estimate for your bike with new parts added so you can submit it to the insurance.
I too have had parts stolen not a whole bike I’m sorry to say but I looked at is as a way for me to upgrade what I had.
The summer is not even here you have plenty of time to buy or get another bike and make it more than what you had before…nothing more.
Sorry for the lose…
u can also file a report over the phone if u dont have time. i did that with the last bike i had stolen. nothing came of it tho...scrap yard bound since it was a stupid bum with tools. good luck man.
Nobosy else is in for a trip down there tomorrow morning?
Sorry to hear the news, Heather, but ummm, yeah, leaving a bike outside over night, especially a Bianchi, isn't really the best idea. Also, why work with your roommates with regards to renter's insurance? Renter's insurance is cheap. All the years I rented solo and with roommates I had my own policy. Don't wait for roommates to look into renter's insurance.
heather stratton said:Yeah, unfortunately getting renters insurance turned out to be one of those things that I kept meaning to do, and brought up with my roommates, and never got around to.
If there are lessons to be learned here, they include: don't leave my bike outside overnight, and get renters insurance to protect the remaining bikes. I'm glad I got this shake-up with the bike that never fit me well and to which I wasn't emotionally attached. I'm more annoyed (well, and out a big chunk of cash) than sad. dav said:Don't forget that your bicycle can also be claimed with your homeowners or renters insurance. You may not be able to get the complete value, but it should get you on your way if the swap-o-rama thing doesn't work out. Good luck.
If you find your ride, you might ask to see if your U-lock fits on it. Then refuse to unlock it.
