See, now if she would have been wearing a helmet, none of this would have happened...... although, she is blonde.

Emily Finch's (currently missing/stolen) Bakfiets/Cargo bike.  I'm quite certain there's not another one like it in the North America.  Note rear bike towing bracket.  Find this bike and return it to Emily.  Massive amounts of good Karma will be directly deposited into your Karma Bank.  #portland   #pdx

Copied over from my FB Feed    PDX Folk, be on the lookout:

Person's name is Megan Holcomb.

"As many of you know, I just rode across country from Washington DC to Portland OR. My 2nd to last day visiting Portland, my touring bike, that I built myself, was stolen this morning sometime before 8am PST on west Burnside St (NW). I am absolutely heartbroken. I dont have many friends/connections here in Portland but posting this anyway to get the word out for those who are nearby. If you know people in Portland or surrounding area, please tag. Could be already in the marketplace or several weeks before the culprit sells it.

Details:
Surly - Long Haul Trucker 
Black 46cm frame
26'' wheels (Continental Tour Ride)
Honey colored Brooks leather saddle (possibly under black seat cover) and matching tan handlebar tape
Teal cable housing
Headset has a unique spacer thats a lime green beer bottle opener
Shimano bar end shifters
Black front rack (old man mountain) and back rack the front rack cannot be removed unless they find a new quick release for hub mounting
Front and back Planet Bike fenders with lots of bright yellow reflective stickers
The right of the top tube only says "Trucker" on it (compared to all/most LHT bc I scratched it off).
27 speed. Large chain ring is black, middle and small are silver.
Pedals are MKS step-in flat on one side, clips on the other
I had a nameplate on the back fender that said "Megan" from Natural Bridge, VA but likely was removed.

Unfortunately I dont have many pics of the bike unloaded because I finished building just before the trip.

******
UPDATE 1: My bike and I are still apart. I am still hurting. BUT, the love, support, and community I have felt from social media is unbelievable. You all sharing my story has made a HUGE difference in exposure. The local news picked up my story as well as the Oregonian. Unfortunately, there is nothing new about a bike theft story in Portland... but the story is not about theft. Its about people caring. And relating to my loss. And not wanting their beautiful city to be known for this. I promise you all I will not remember Portland for the loss of my 2-wheeled companion. 16,000 shares? That has given me more hope than I could ask for. Its a community search party! And we are going to find this bike to show what all of the "good" can do to outshine the few "bad"! Thank you. Deeply.

******
UPDATE 2: REWARD $500
Three leads popped up in the last 12 hours but all unfortunately were dead ends. I know this is about so much more than money but your time and attention means the world to me. I am making flyers right now for a cash reward. $500 to whoever can get ahold of this bike or can provide the final lead

My heart goes out to you.  That bike looks nearly identical to my day-to-day commuting rig.  The black LHT was an inspiration when it was first released.  And I never questioned putting on Brookes saddle and handlebar tape.  I hope that you get back you lost love.

Stolen Bike. Really REALLY nice stolen bike. Boost the signal!
A local builder's high-end carbon fiber road bike — worth nearly $15,000 — has been nabbed from his northeast Portland garage.

You could tip either up and walk with it. My three wheeler is heavy but rolls nicely once you pick up the rear.

Portland/Seattle Folks (and anyone else on the West Coast).  I don't know if you know who Emily Finch is, I don't believe that she's on G+.  At any rate, she is car free using only a cargo bike (Bakfiets like mine) to manage a household with 6 kids.  It was Stolen over the weekend, please keep an eye out for someone either riding (or trying to sell) a bakfiets.  I have to believe that they'll look way out of place.  I'll post a picture of the bike in a few minutes, I have to find a representative photo.

I'll keep posting until this bike is found and returned to Emily.
Keep your eyes peeled for this distinctive bike. The photo above was taken three weeks ago and is pretty much what the bike looked like when it was stolen (except for the firewood). One feature that should set it apart is the "Follow-Me Tandem" attachment on the rear rack.

Really great Fish & Chips. It's the only place we go for F&C in Victoria. For those who have written poor reviews, not sure what you're looking for, this place is excellent.
