Just like with a missing child "Amber Alert," this "Yeller Alert" demands a quick distribution, hence the blog post with picture.
I had been perusing the Trek Omaha store with my daughter and was just about to walk out the door when Bryan called out the news from a Twitter message from Brady. The news:
OLD YELLER WAS STOLEN! (link)
Keep an eye out for my bicycle - it's kevlar cable was cut and stolen in front of the downtown public library today after 2pm (link)
I think of this collaborative blog as one of the voices of Omaha's diverse cycling community. Given its wide readership and number of people out on the streets cycling, it's my hope that getting this news out quickly to the local community might help Brady get his bike back.
It's easy to spot. It's the color of a yellow UP locomotive, or yellow like a school bus. Also, the little triangle under the seat made by the GT frame where the seat stays join the top tube make the frame easy to recognize.
If you see Old Yeller, call 911. Then call or message Brady.
This theft is so very unlike Omaha. I wonder if, with RAGBRAI, the professional bike thieves are in town.
