  • More of the same; I had my Brooks nicked a few weeks ago, lock cut, was utterly furious (although now considering the prudence of replacing it)...Just a heads up in case anyone recognises the below:

    Im stuck in South Korea for a few weeks so I cant do anything but PLEASE if you see either of these pretty unique bikes then let the police know or let me know via the forum.

    Thank so much in advance!!

  • That's really shit. Sorry

  • ^ ^ this :(

    whereabouts in London is your flat Joel - might be helpful for people to keep an eye out if it's local to them or if there are known places where stolen bikes are flogged on.

  • Thanks, I live in Kentish town, NW5, around the Queens crescent area.

  • Just thought I'd post that my road bike was stolen on Christmas day from right outside my flat. (unlocked as I live on the 6th floor of a gated block at the end of a row, and was just popping in)

    Frame: Cannondale R500 in dark blue, 60 cm. some dents on the top tube.
    Wheels: Dura-Ace hubs, Ambrosio Excellence rims 32H 9sp.
    finishing kit was a mix of Ultegra and other bits, Tiagra shifters, cinelli stem, Specialized carbon seatpost, Black Flite Ti saddle, Bontager RaceLight cranks. pretty tidy bike, if you see it round london, especially near victoria park/hackney, please let me know.

  • Any pics Mobidog?

    Keep your eyes open for the bike in your flat. I'd guess somebody on that floor stole it. Why not go by their doors and ask if they've seen it. They might just confess and give you some lame excuse why they have it.

  • Mods, please delete this post as i have duplicated it and cant find a way of deleting it, sorry!!

    My rather unique Langster has just been stolen from outside Nev’s place in St Pauls Cray, Orpington, Kent.
    I suspect it was nicked by some local “oiks” because a really crap bike was dumped where mine was taken from.
    Please will you keep your eyes open to see if it pops up anywhere, either in the real world or on the internet?
    Description as follows as with the features that it had I think it’s pretty unique and quickly recognisable:-
    Dark Green Specialized Langster
    Brown bar tape
    Map holder attachment on bars
    Bar end shifter (3 speed) on right bar end only
    Brooks Swallow (brown) saddle
    Tubas fly L/W rear rack
    S/A 3 speed hub gear
    32 spokes in front wheel, 28 spokes in rear wheel
    Race Blade mudguards in imitation carbon fibre effect material
    Frame number 70689980
    Also registered with Bikeregister.com so it has a white code stencilled on the underneath of the down tube.
    Please also feel free to post this anywhere else you think may be useful.

    Cheers
