Hi all, Soma Wolverine stolen from communal storage overnight at the weekend - SE15.
It's a massive 66cm frame so quite distinctive.
They left the front wheel locked to the rack (I got complacent about securing it...) so wheels may not match or be as in picture.
Unlikely to see it again but posting anyway just in case! Thanks
My friend had his bike stolen outside stormbird in camberwell last night - it’s got quite a bit of sentimental value in our friendship group as it’s changed hands between all of us and was the bike that got him into cycling! Would mean a lot to get it back!
Blue pinarello Galileo stolen from N1 last night. De stickered rims, old fizik arione saddle, had flat tyres so not sure how far someone would have got with it… please keep an eye out was very special! Has black conti gators now as opposed to blue tyres in first pic
MY Wifes, green Brompton has been stolen by some fuckers from outside the front of Tate Modern in the last few hours. Classic 3 speed, 2017/18 I think, with mudguards, schwalbe front tyre and continental rear. Very angry, she loves that bike and has really got into cycling on it in the last 18 months. LOngshot I know, but if you see anyone looking dodgy with bike matching that description
Lost my Serotta last night (probably stolen but there's a chance I drunkenly left it somewhere different to where I thought it was and forgot).
If anyone sees it being sold online (or simply just locked near Shaftsbury Ave) please send me a message.
Currently this is the best pic I've got (will try to find clearer one):
Mostly Dura Ace 7700 on it, Araya rims, Rolls saddle - one difference to the photo is new blue/green/silver camo pattern bar tape.
thought these had built in security/tracking etc?
Reckon the vanmoof store in Covent Garden is it? Could track this down. Yeah think they all have tracking built in.
Yup, and a lock function with alarm which buzzes if the parked bike is moved.
Front brake is disattached which suggests someone has tried to remove bits from it.
Had my black Canyon ultimate Al SLX road bike stolen early this morning from a communal bike store in my block of flats near South Acton station. Size large.
Hunt wheels, specialized toupe saddle, SRAM force 22 groupset, FSA omega handlebar, time atac MTB pedals, Cannondale bottle cages, ritchey stem.
It was locked with 2 locks. An Abus D lock and an Abus chain lock. The burglars broke in through the main front door and smashed their way through two internal doors to get to the communal bike store. Possibility it was targeted as there were other bikes in the store, unlocked, that were left.
If anyone sees it, especially in West London, Chiswick/ Acton area, please let me know. It has been reported.
My Cotic X, and my partner's Trek Lexa were stolen from Lordship Lane in Dulwich this evening. Please shout if you spot them, they both have sentimental value.
Mate’s Bridgestone Anchor with 5 spoke wheels stolen from south London
Farrk, that's gonna be hard to shift hopefully and turns up somewhere.
Nextdoor neighbour had his bike taken from a cyclehoop bikehangar this week- no sign of forced entry to the hanger itself but an impressive cut through the bar he had it locked to.
Seen a few variants on bikes getting taken from these which is obv shite but probably fairly likely given how many there are about.
People in w London, or possibly even wider. There's been a series of break ins in Acton area, from communal bike stores. Same MO each time.
Breaking in through front door of building and then smashing through any internal fire doors etc to get to bike store. Seems to be an organised thing. Picking off blocks of flats one by one.
E17 thief alert
It does make you wonder if it's much harder to prove that it was this or that person if the mask obscured half the face in pictures or videos.
Riding a scooter with a bike over your shoulder must also be pretty conspicuous, not to mention that it probably causes a few balance issues. (I haven't tried it.)
hey could you link me to the fb post or dm me. thanks.
yep have done
Hello long time... my dear friend has just had a bike stolen yesterday from Brixton hill, he would really like it back its very dear to him. If anyones see this bike could you please get back to me thanks
Have just seen this on fb, smells a bit funky if anyone knows anyone that has had a Cinelli Superstar stolen recently
Stolen from a communal garage in Balham last night. Distinctive paint job.
Some of you might remember this bike as you were so helpful last time it was stolen (my 14 year old son was mugged for the bike back in 2019).
Amazingly, we got it back - through the help of someone who had bought it without knowing it was dodgy - but unfortunately, two years later it has been stolen again.
The bike was handmade by a relative. Adult sized black fixed gear single speed bike: silver rims, sturmey archer cranks. Different to the pic it now has black handle bar grips and black pedals (so not so distinguishing!).
Stolen by cutting the lock when it was locked up in Lower Clapton E5.
I'm not hopeful in getting it back a second time but you never know!
I had my Circe tandem stolen today while it was parked up outside a school. Tottenham.
