Sad to report that my son's Giant Boulder (black, small, rack and marathon tyres so not usual for an MTB) was lifted from outside the bank in Lochee today. Police have been on the case, it is covered by CCTV.

Stolen from Hassocks - 2012 16 inch On One Inbred. Specialized saddle, Marzzochi Bomber forks and one heart broken owner. How am I going to do the SDW this summer now?

Bummer. Any pics ?  When were you planning to do the SDW ?  I'm guessing that a 21" Orange O2 would be too big for you ?  Would be happy to lend it if it fits and the dates work for me.

The only photo I've got of it is a night time shot at the top of the tank tracks - I had the bike just a few weeks. Bloody Hell Fire! it wouldn't have happened in Hurst you know.
Thanks so much for the really kind offer but I've got really short stumpy legs  ;D

Another York theft >:(

Quote
Walter Angerer and his wife were visiting York from Munich, when the ['Lepierre'] bikes were cut from a secure carrier on their car overnight on Saturday.

Easily recognisable?

With the current trend of Chavs biking around city centres, i would think it is highly likely the bikes will be dumped somewhere.

Better to forget and claim on insurance.

Coventry area
Brompton stolen.
It is very distinctive as the white frame has been entirely covered in the black and white camouflage used for prototype cars.

Other detail are 3 speed SA gears, rear rack, front hub dynamo lights and front carrier fitting.

In sunny ipswich, 4:50pm 1/9/17 ouitside brunswick road co-op, I left it outside the co-op once too often it seems:
my fixie
the only sit up and beg fixie I have ever seen
short cranks (155mm)
rack front (alu, nomrod with shelf) and rear (black sjsc 60kg one)
non-matching mudguards with flaps of shampoo bottle (front) and lime green toilet duck (rear)
lightbottle rack on handlebars - was black, fading to bronze and metallic)
bars are north all rounder, chrome
front brake only, empty lever for rear brake
rusty bottom bracket and chain stays
step through frame
home made wheels
double sided pedals, toe strap on left pedal only
nurse's lock

cable lock was cast aside at the end of Khartoum Road, I found it the next morning.

I did all my fixed audaxes on it, and it's my runaround - hence rear rack rating, I used to cart the little dears around on it, when it had bmx pegs on it.

This takes despicable to a whole new level.

What kind of lowlife scum comes along to a pair of roadbikes and, instead of stealing them, cuts through the cables and steals the handlebars, stems and levers?

If it hadn't happened to a customer's bikes I wouldn't have believed it. It's soul destroying.

I FUCKING HATE BIKE THIEVES. . . !

Exact same thing happened to a guy at work, left the frame and stripped most of the components in the same way with liberal use of cutters!

Wow!  >:(

Do the people at Corley Cycles know about www.bikeshd.co.uk ?
I know it is London-centric, but it does monitor sites like e-bay, gumtree, and all the others.
It was instrumental (along with the METs cycle task force team) in recovering my Aussie friend's stolen Condor - re-uniting bike with owner.
