  • bike theft task force is dead no longer active, the images and video have been sent to all local stations, he is well known by brick lane bike, apparently cluless about bikes , ask for 100 quid or somthing .

  • well it sounds hopeful
    good luck

  • Dibs

  • Dolan Pre Cursa, contacted this guy as am looking for one of these, maybe its legit, but his responses were not reassuring. He's also seling a track champion and a 2009 silver langster if your missing one...­single-speed-bicycle/1049848970

  • If he's known by BLB why don't they just forcibly take anything he's trying to flog and kick him out?

  • lol have you ever been to BLB?

    they can barely be bothered serving actual paying customers let alone take the initiative to recover stolen property.

  • Brick lane bikes and stolen property. Not often something you hear in the same sentence.

  • ^^ obvs not too good with numbers either. No way that's a 52t.

  • I've had really good service in BLB recently, and if I owned a bike shop I wouldnt want to be doing a citizen arrest on every crim that tried to sell me something. They've provided a cctv shot of the guy, most shops wouldnt be bothered to do that.

  • If he's known by BLB why don't they just forcibly take anything he's trying to flog and kick him out?

    That's easy to type, and not so easy to do. The police won't be interested, and the guy is likely to kick a fuss if challenged.

  • Oh of course, although a shop full of vengeful cyclists might make things a little less difficult! Just seems such a shame for Ashleyh to have seen his bike again, in a 'friendly' environment no less, and be no closer to getting it back despite plenty of others offering to 'help' if they happen to see it out and about.

  • It would be very irresponsible for anyone to try and forcibly take back the bike. What if he pulled a knife and stabbed someone? It hardly seems worth taking the risk for your own bike let alone someone else's.

    2nd dibs for £100

  • I'd get stabbed for recovering a beloved Brooklyn. Won't be the first time anyway

  • I've just seen this:­e?c=MPSContent_C&pagename=MPS_CMS_Intern­et%2FMPSLayout&cid=1400021006142

    Might be worth a browse, but most of these appear to be fairly low value. Valiant effort, though, given the huge number of recovered bikes.

  • well i am sure the owner would have just taken it off him, but he was not at work, and at least they let me take the cctv , i dont blame them for not getting involved ...

    keep a look out

  • Noticed this guy has been selling lots of bikes.­259

  • Bunch of stuff stolen off a mate last night, Manchester so probably not likely to be spotted by most of you but the targeted nature of what was stolen mean it might pop up and the more people looking the better.­ic.php?f=4&t=289703

    I would be grateful for any information. :)

    Thanks a lot for your help.

  • 640pm from the bike racks outside tesco on the old kent road last night. They cut through a kryptonite mini evo and a kryptonite cable in a little under 20 minutes.

    It was just a hanger for shit parts so all I've really lost is the frame but it is quite distinctive so if anyone tries to sell you it, lemme know.

    57cm BMC trco1
    Cheap Quando rear wheel /black and white tyre
    Front high flange stock langster wheel /black and white tyre black spokes
    Generic no brand silver cranks
    Generic no brand black chainring
    Charge gold half link chain
    Gold hope stem
    M:parts headset
    90s cinelli criterium bars wrapped with orange lizard skin tape and black carol tape on the tops
    Easton carbon stem
    Specialized toupe saddle
    Shimano spd pedals with large platform... I forget the model

    I'd only had it for a few days so it's the only bike I had yet to get registered.


    Here's a picture...

  • raleigh connoisseur stolen last night from Evelyn Gardens, just off fulham road. Very similar to the picture, but the rear brake leaver has been changed for a black Clarkes leaver­ur-26-retro-1970s-push-bike-/00/s/MTExMV­gxMjIz/z/AMIAAOxyNW9SIhnQ/$(KGrHqF,!qcFI­h46kS73BSIhnQELgQ~~60_12.JPG

    That's shit news but thanks for letting us know what you were locking up with. I use a mini-evo, so useful to know :(


    Dark times

  • I'm going to start locking up in dodgy places and watch from a distance... Then cut the limbs off anyone who touches my bike. Like a cycle super hero
