  • Small (49cm) turquoise gazelle champion mondial stolen outside Rushmore Primary school in E5. The frame was quite beaten up and I suspect someone probably cut through it and destroyed it to get the parts as the lock was where it had been left undamaged, so not hopeful it'll be recovered, but would be happy to see any of it turn up. Much sentimental value :(

  • That's shit. I think your suspicion as to the method of theft is probably correct, sadly. :(

  • Saw this little cluster locked at the entrance to Cockpit Yard WC1 yesterday evening. Looked weird, could be innocent.

  • Please look out for friends stolen Trek and Liv Hybrid.

    Stolen from a communal lock-up* near Westferry. Sometime between Thursday night and Friday midday.

    *In before Oliver, yes they are well known to be vulnerable to theft but sometimes there’s no other choice if you’re in a small flat.

  • Like I'd blame the victims. It's planning rules that need changing. Landlords need to improve security and put in place good management régimes for existing facilities.

  • We're the bikes insured?

    The security door got kicked in and the lock was cut by what I can deduce with a hand held angle grinder hence I do concur with +Oliver Schick

    You're paying service charge so why don't demand for better service?

  • Just been mugged for me old-man bike which I absolutely loved. If anyone spots it please let me know.­54366532726789

  • Crap news, Matt. Glad you're OK. And it's a completely bizarre incident, of course. If it cheers you up, they clearly mistook you for a pro racer on a £10k bike. Hope you get one that feels like an adequate replacement after a while, but I have old-bike-attachment-syndrome bad, too, so I can imagine how it feels.

    It’s real; see The Third Policeman:

    The gross and net result of it is that people who spent most of their natural lives riding iron bicycles over the rocky roadsteads of this parish get their personalities mixed up with the personalities of their bicycle as a result of the interchanging of the atoms of each of them and you would be surprised at the number of people in these parts who are nearly half people and half bicycles… when a man lets things go so far that he is more than half a bicycle, you will not see him so much because he spends a lot of his time leaning with one elbow on walls or standing propped by one foot at kerbstones.

    Sorry to hear about another bike theft; even worse when it was a mugging.

  • I'm OK. Just miss that bike - we had a lot of adventures together. I don't think I was targeted for profit, I just think I rode past the wrong group of ne'er-do-wells at the wrong moment.

  • Fucking hell, glad you are unscathed but be kind to yourself for the next few days too, these things can creep up on you. We were walking near there probably around the time (Bromley Rd shops) but didn't see anything notable.
