Damn, that's a sweet bike. I'll keep my eyes peeled.
Was it stolen this week? If so, Brick Lane this Sunday for you.
PS: I've renamed the thread so that all stolen bikes can go in here. Hopefully this will mean that when new ones are added, we see the old ones and it helps remind us of other bikes to watch out for. I'll sticky the thread if it (unfortunately) takes off.

A prolific thief who pilfered bikes from cycle racks across the railway network is banned from travelling on trains in the areas he targeted most.
Daniel Westrop, a 27-year-old labourer from Bromley, received an Asbo and a five month suspended jail term when he appeared at Woking Magistrates Court on Friday.
He was charged with 10 counts of theft of bikes and 92 offences were taken into consideration.

I can't believe he didn't get any real jail time. The guy was a professional thief, stealing bikes for three years. Yet with over a 100 offences taken into consideration, albeit only 10 charged for, the judge gave him an ASBO, some community service and a suspended sentence. Piff. They seemed most proud for banning him from the trains.

Hi all - had my singlespeed nicked from outside my flat in early June - had just spent lots on it, so was royally pissed - West London - Askew Rd. Haven't got any pics - but here's the specs - (I, of course, know every nut and bolt on there!)
V.large 20" unbranded plain alloy mountain bike frame using a hacked up rear Derr. chain tensioner. Black gaffer tape around main frame-tubes. Black steel forks (slight backwards bend).
NEW Fat slick tyres – ‘Schwalbe Big Apple’. Front wheel – silver rim + spokes (Wolber titanium light on old Deore).
NEW Rear wheel - 35mm WHITE PlanetX rim + BLACK spokes in 2x SNOWFLAKE with two 16t BMX sprockets on a BLACK On-One flip flop hub (really skinny Triple-butted spokes)
Handlebars – champagne colour Azonic flats with silver levers, black/green Lock-on grips and scratched black stubby barends NEW black Kore logo stem. NEW On-one logo saddle – high up! 44t Black Raceface chainring on Shimano Deore hollowlight cranks. MKS CT-Lite pedals with MT Zefal clips + straps
The most standout parts are the bent forks & rear wheel - seriously mutant - theres no other like it!
Went to Brick Lane 2 weekends running but no luck.... some crack head probably sold it for a score..
Damn I wish I could draw it for you! Cheers,

sorry to hear about your bike provenrad - that's a real bummer. that back wheel sounds pretty distinctive - I wonder if the thieves are smart enough to spot unusual looking parts and swap them out for something more conventional? I'll look out for it anyway.
don't give up on brick lane though - if at least one person goes in the morning and then pops into one the internet cafes at the top of the lane, he/she can let us all know what suspicious looking bikes there.

some bloke who works with me, but is considerably higher up than me so i bite my tongue,
was ranting on about how stealing bikes happens so much because expensive bikes are really
light and when they are locked thieves can just pick them up and walk off with them!
i really wanted to state how it is just absolutely lepers who lock their wheel to frame and nothing else
then trot off.
he stated this about 5 times and i was shaking with rage.

Yo guys, I know this was late last year but I had this old English nugget stolen from underneath my nose on the Lower Clapton Road. Early Novemberish, while i was buying some bananas at my local...15 seconds looking the other way and...WOOSH. To this day I have no idea where she maybe and i feel like a mupp. Many a sad Sunday down Bricklane, no joy. She was my bread and butter, working this death town on a daily messenging all over the shop. The week before she went missing we both survived, a total deck at the hands of some Cabbie w***er on Oxford St. God Blessed us...aah those were the days.
Have any of you seen my giant orange SID MOTTRAM???????????????????????????

OK people, here's one for you.
I ride a nice bashed up and quite wierd loooking old batavus for work (some kind soul put a londonfgss card in the wheel which lead me here), but my back up bike was stolen last friday. It's a standard issue ridgeback genesis day 03 (i know, I know), with all the trimmings, sans back wheel. some fucker, whom I'll come back to, broke in the window of the garage and stole it and my housemate's ridgeback somethingorother lady bike. (Ill get the details off her). Any way, we thought no more of it, scoured brick lane with no joy, and then at about 12 on saturday got a call from a nieghbour saying someone was in our shed. again. stupid fuck. our heroic housemate sam chased one of them and called the police, got in their van and caught the bastard!
which is all well and good, but no bikes have emerged so he's already sold it, or one of his cunting mates got there first. Anyway if you see a slightly battered genesis cruising around, with a mismatched back wheel and lots of chips on the top tube do what you will, in the spirit of sam the fearless bike thief catcher.

Found a slightly more recent (ie less than 10 years old) picture of my bike that went missing 3 weeks ago. Still a crap picture mind (phone camera) but at least it shows the whole bike this time. So, this is how it was in 2005 - since then the turn-ups on the end of the bars got sawn off, the bar tape went blue, and so did the tyres. Not much hope of getting back now I suppose - bastard cops couldn't be bothered to look at the footage from the cctv camera at the end of my road.

yeah, he was quite wary of that. sounded quite slapstick, chasing the bloke till he was well close, then the bloke would turn round and start shouting and sam would slow down, and then start running again. Anyway he's a hard bastard and would have battered the wanker. unless he had a knife i spose.

I know plenty of people who have been unluck enough to have their bikes stolen (one 5 hours after buying it!), and on a few occasions they have been able to get them back from Brick Lane (which has already been suggested) at the weekend, although they have been forced to BUY it back.
The other place to try is www.gumtree.com I have been looking for a good secondhand road bike for a while, and most of the adverts i have called about are clearly for stolen bikes, so i have told them where to stick it. I know all these things are a long shot, but it seems that when a good quality bike is stolen they are wise to the fact they can get better money for it, and so seem to take their chances more with an ad online.
Unfortunately the police couldn't give a monkeys about recovering stolen bikes, such is the level of theft in this town, and even if there is a CCTV camera pointing at wher it was stolen from, they won't even check the footage.

i dont hink it was the one thenmate, sorry to get your hopes up. I was offered a bike i have no doubt is stolen from my incredibly dodgy neighbour. Had another look last night, its a dark blue ridgeback racer, size 54, with lots of chips on the top tube. I checked the wheels and they are both the same. It also has a sticker saying what shop it is from. If anyone has lost this bike and knows where it is from let me know.
