"Just looking," the shopper told the inquiring clerk. The innocuous conversation was taking place Saturday afternoon inside Budget Bicycles, 930 Regent St. The 51-year old "tire kicker" suddenly grabbed a $590 Raleigh and headed out the door. The salesman gave chase and was able to pull the bike out from beneath the rider as he attempted to peddle away. His description was broadcast to responding officers, and one spotted the suspect walking on a bike path near Orchard St. He was arrested for theft.
