I had my bike stolen yesterday (11-1-13) from Boerum Place and Pacific St, Brooklyn, NY. I’ve owned the bike since 92. Recently put new wheels (Mavic Crossrides) and tires (Ricthy 1×26) and had it overhauled. The frame is a Nishiki Ariel. I’ve never seen another in NYC, so good chances if anyone spots one, it’s mine.
It has several worn reflective decals on it, paint job is a little worn, Nishiki logo is in bright flourescent green.
Most distinctive feature are the raised chainstays.
Here’s a more detailed description:

Tires: New Ricthey 26×1 tires
