Fark_Guy_Rob: There are different levels of scumbag - but a guy who is willing to steal a bicycle isn't too far above a guy who is willing to punch some soccer Mom in the face.

Angry woman defending the nest > scared thug.

Ex-Texan: I*'ve done a few  century rides, as well as 150 mile rides, and run a few 10-20ks, but if I was equipped, I'd just use my .45 acp, and wait for the cops. 230 grains will stop them real fast. All my bikes are insured, so there's that. No deductible.
cheapest one I bought was a little over $1300, so there's that too.

Say, don't you have to be at the shooting range in 26 minutes?

Nothing puts bike nerds into a white-hot rage like bike thieves.  Dude is lucky she let the cops have him.

FatherChaos: That's a pretty brave lady.

It's the Pacific Northwest, not a huge chance the guy was an inner city thug. More than likely a white drifter dude who just wanted a free bike. If this was Cleveland I'd say she was brave.

"A West Seattle marathon mom refused to be a victim when she spotted a man stealing her husband's bicycle from her garage on June 6, 2013."

Awwwww, that's so sweet. And that dude better be treating her like a queen too.

I would hope that if you have a bike you can get away from someone running 10 minute miles even if they go 20k.

If only the thief had access to a faster means of escape...
