EXTRA: We've been overwhelmed by the number of informative/heart-breaking/frustrating bike theft stories, and we'd like to follow some of them up. If you're telling us yours and think it would help, then please provide an email or phone contact. We won't use this for anything else except to ask you more about your experiences.
