Boo to attempted abduction Glad you got it sorted this morning though.

A Bernese colleague was telling me about a Bernese traditional where people will just take an unlocked bike to get home of an evening and then ditch the bike wherever they are going, ready for the next biker-in-need to come along.
Sorry to hear...

I know what you mean about this. My wife's family live on the outskirts of Burgdorf in Bern, right near a steep street on one side & apartment blocks on the other, and it's not uncommon to come outside on a Saturday or Sunday morning and see a bike out the front...
Gets me annoyed every time!

That sucks!

Well, the "bright side" is that you still have your bike?
Where I was living before (the fair city of Baltimore) you couldn't leave your bicycle at the Starbucks, much less the train station.
I'm from Baltimore!

Re: Poor bike

Your M-Budget bike got bullied - you two need counseling.
