Today, I finally received the bicycle I ordered months ago. It was an expensive custom-made bike which perfectly fit my 6'9" frame. Today, that bike got stolen. FML

It shouldn't be too difficult to find the 6'9" thief. You giants stick out like sore thumbs. Just look for the guy wheezing from breathing the thin air up there and other assorted tall people jokes because you're taller than I and I'm totally NOT bitter.

Tell the cops to be on the lookout for a guy riding a bike with a phone book on each pedal. Shouldn't be too hard to catch.

i would like to be taller but not quite that tall.

the thief doesnt have to be tall. he could also just ran away with it or put it in his car

I'd like to be 6 ft 2, 200 pounds and a kangaroo

Short people got no reason . . . Oh, um, sorry Doc!

Dude that sucks! Get a bike lock.

a bike lock is a liiiitle late now since he has no bike lol

It was custom made, it would be smart to have already had a lock before it getting stolen. Check Craigslist incase someone might have posted it!

I hope whoever stole it was tall too

Personally I hope the guy was short as fuck and can't really enjoy riding it

You didn't lock it up?

Obviously not if it got stolen....

Okay, correction; it could have been not locked up good enough if it got stolen. I kinda realized that after my first comment, lol. But that makes me wonder a lot. How bad could it have been locked up if someone stole it? Are some locks just shitty?

Bike thieves can cut most bike locks like butter. With the right tools (which are very simple to buy) you can cut through just about anything. I don't know about solid steel chains, but I wouldn't be surprised if there was a way to cut that as well.

#23: yeah, I guess so. Thanks for telling me so I'll be more aware. I've never owned a bike lock of any sort.. I'll keep that in mind when I buy one. My neighbor is quite a bike thief.

Some thieves don't even need a cutter. Liquid nitrogen or helium and hammer would do the job.

Liquid nitrogen isn't exactly easy to get a hold of...

Actually 56, it isn't that difficult. All you need is the right container and to be 18. That's what my old Chemistry teacher said atleast.

Is that how many months old you are?

It's just a joke. No maliciousness intended.

His name is BJdog, I think he may lack a few chromosomes.

OP is Six feet. AND 9 inches!

YDI for stealing those extra 14 inches from me.

As in a dick, or your redneck rifle?

Nope, beer gut.

Are the soul's you're consuming very fatty? Do you eat soul's and wash it down with beer? So many questions!

Never saw a rifle that was 14 inches.. Shit barrels on the rifles are longer than that.

Number 27, I know what you mean! You've got those 14 inches up your butt!

You should have locked it up good, OP. if I had a custom bike made I'd make sure to keep it secure when I'm not using it, that's for sure.

Double lock next time! Maybe even triple!

There wont be a next time were you not reading

I'm sure op will own another bike at some point in his life. So yes, there most likely will be a next time

It sucks that your custom bike was stolen but you really should have had a bike lock on it our a chain if some sort. YDI.

Who said that OP didn't have one? I've SEEN people in the United States pop those locks in anywhere from 30 seconds to 3 minutes and walk off with the bike. It isn't hard, it just takes bolt cutters and an attitude like you own the place and people wont even notice majority of the time.

A set of hydraulic snips and a so what attitude and you can have any bike you want in 5 seconds or less. That's why couriers take their seat, so nobody wants their bike.
