Anyone that’s ever had their bike stolen has fantasized about tracking down the thief and retrieving their bike. It usually involves a group of your friends and possibly a baseball bat, some pepper spray, and some steel-toed boots. Portland rider “Simon Jackson” took it a step better, kept it legal and took his revenge on a hapless bike thief. Not only was he able to retrieve his bike, but he documented it and shared it with the world. This viral video documents his quest and sucessful attempt to get his bike back when a thief posts his bike in Seattle.
