Peter Sagal recently had his bike stolen:

I came out today, my bike shoes clattering, and spent a strange thirty seconds staring at the space where it was, denying to myself that I couldn’t see it.

Anybody see anybody riding it on the streets of Chicago, hit them with a rock, but try not to scratch the paint.
