San Francisco, CA Makers help find a stolen bike!

Nice Racks - 06
I heard the saddest story last week and I am hoping makers in the San Francisco, CA area can help out. FIND THIS STOLEN BICYCLE! – Saul Griffith (MAKE advisory board member, co-creator of HOWTOONS, instructables, genius award winner…) was speaking at “Compost Modern” about the environment, energy, taking bicycles places – you know, earthy stuff. Saul had rode his wife’s bicycle to the event, he got this custom bike for her as a wedding present, it says “For Arwen Griffith” on the frame. It’s a yellow “pocket rocket” from Bike Friday – I know these bikes and they’re amazing, Saul will only buy something if he plans to have it for the next 100 years and to pass it along to his kids, this was one of those things. Any way – the irony of course is, speaking about good transportation choices at an eco-conference you ride your bicycle to means your bike will get stolen while you do your talk – this bike was stolen across from the Herbst Theater, Saturday Februrary 21st (Saturday) between 1-5pm. This bicycle is extremely rare, custom made and says “For Arwen Griffith” on it. It will be hard to sell and most people who know about bikes will be able to spot this. If you know anything about this bicycle there is a reward and also “no questions” asked – just email me. I told Saul that there are a lot of makers in the Bay Area and there’s a good chance we might be able to find this bike. It had a “New York” Kryptonite lock on it, it was gone too.
