Tell him there isn't two victims, just you and a guy who's 'great deal' blew up in his face.
Anybody who buys a high-value item like that with no way to track down a verified seller deserves everything they get.
'Victims' like that drive the thefts in the first place.
I’ve effectively replied outlining all the ways in which the police didn’t help me and yet have deemed these mudguards to be of the highest priority. And that life is unfair but this is perhaps the cost of making stupid decisions on gumtree. And I’ve just started a formal complaints procedure with the office of the PCC ...
What I really need to do is alert the staff seargent or the police Constable of the police station in question but not sure how to get in touch. A quick google only provides a complaints form ...
What a proper farce, just reinforces that they only interested in going after legitimate folks (stand a chance of a useful response/resolution) rather than scallies. Just to clear up, you've had several bikes stolen and this is only one of them found (by you) the others are still out there?
i've gone out and found 3 of them ... 2 were with various drug dealers who I had to buy them back from ... but at a minimal cost, basically here's a 50 for your troubles ...
Well done on the formal complaint with the PCC and yeah drop off the guards at the nearest police station.
Did the officer contacting you identify themselves?
Contact me if possible?
Did you acquire his bike or are you trying to make a sale?
Posting for a friend, what appears to be a cable operated brake aluminium diverge.
Stolen from Queens Yard 'ackney Wick, presumably using cordless angle grinder.
Any sightings please hit me up. Thanks
USA Ali frame/forks/Shimano 105.. lifted from Hackney around 29/12/19
Edit. Photo is not how bike was locked at the time :-) they went in via a heavy locked shed and cropped the good lock that was attached to the shed. Also took a massive chop saw, big arms?
Never seen another. Nothing spesh but a lovely bike if you happen to see it around
There was a blue SE Draft left next to the east lake in Victoria Park this afternoon. Presumably stolen.
Yes please contact me AS SOON AS POSSIBLE ,
Please contact me regarding this bike thank you https://instagram.com/eastlondoncycle.co?igshid=olszi17isxpy
Anyone lost a Surly Disc Trucker/Straggler with flat/riser/swept back bars?
Had a puncture hence was walking my bike home by Elephant and Castle station and a kid was on it weaving past pedestrians on the pavement heading into the estates.
Hi, I’ve messaged you via Instagram
Spotted this Surly Long Haul Trucker (canti brakes) on Facebook market place. Seems pretty suspect.
My friend just had his (locked) bike stolen from outside sports direct in Whitechapel.
It’s a new, white Basso Laguna.
What should we do? Contact the police and keep an eye on the Saturday markets?
This must be hot what a ride
Unfortunately my sister in law had her road bike stolen from outside Parsons Green Health Centre yesterday. I am posting here in case anybody spots the bike anywhere either in SW London or beyond.
It is a Liv Avail 3 from 2016, same black/purple colourway as seen here: https://www.liv-cycling.com/gb/avail-3-2016
It has 2 Liv bottle cages attached, shimano road pedals and a garmin mount attached. Otherwise it is stock.
I know it is unlikely but I thought it worth posting all the same. Fingers crossed!
Stolen just now on Bethnal Green Road, belongs to a very good friend of mine. Please get straight in touch if you see it anywhere.
Had bullmoose bars on it rather than what's pictured here
If anyone hears about a missing Trek Madone SL6 2020 disc in black/neon I've just seen one.
I had the back wheel of my bike stolen in Parsons Green the same day. Maybe a group going round.
Had my Brother Kepler stolen in se15. Has a pizza rack on the front, time atac pedals and a Wizard Works tool roll. If you see it lock it and let me know please.
Super unlikely it will show up on this forum, given the type of bike and the location, but we're posting it as many places as possible just incase:
2018 Specialized Turbo Levo FSR E-bike.
Stem spacers have been changed from gold to black, stem changed from nukeproof to Specialized and the mud guards have been removed, other than that it is as pictured.
Reported to the police. Serial number unique to the motor has been added to the police report.
Stolen from BH10 area in Bournemouth - 08/01/20
Please get in touch if you see anything suspicious
