Chicago man wants to buy back stolen bike

Charlie Dennis, a 27-year-old Army veteran from Chicago, is willing to buy back his stolen bike -- no questions asked.

Chicago Sun-Times columnist Mark Brown today shared Charlie's story in today's column. Charlie's Salsa road bicycle is a big part of his life. Two years ago, Charlie rode the bike from Denver to Chicago. Two weeks ago, it was stolen from his apartment complex.

"Please, it means a lot to me," pleads a sign posted outside the complex. The sign provides a phone number for the thief to call to make ransom demands and to arrange the bike's return.

I recommend you go over to the Sun-Times Web site and read the column for yourself. It's a good tale of a man's attachment to his bicycle, something all cyclists can relate to.
