Saddle Thieves in Seattle

Word has gotten back to me from several sources that riders are getting their Brooks saddles stolen from their parked bikes in Seattle, particularly from downtown. Suspiciously coinciding with this spree of saddle swiping, a couple of guys had earlier approached our shop hawking used Brooks. My boss turned them away, but in retrospect it would have been nice to have snapped a picture. Without the picture, the description is mainly limited to “scuzzy looking white guys”. Whether or not these guys are the culprits, someone is stealing Brooks in broad daylight in a calculated m.o. Keep an eye out.
