whats worse than bike theft - you just answered that!
Sorry to hear about your bike. I just got mine back and first ride was from the shop in Austin where it was repaired to Waco. I sure enjoyed the ride but been sick and that made it somewhat uncomfortable. Don't know what I'd so if someone messed with my bike. It would not be pretty though if I caught them.
I am sure the repair will be swift and easy and you will be back in the saddle soon.
