Hey, My Bike Was Stolen in Basildon, Essex

Posted on
  • Last wednesday I left my bike outside Argos in Basildon for 2 minutes (I know, I'm a fool) and some bastard stole it. So, I figured I would post this and ask anyone in the area if they've seen it around and to call me on 07882111125 if you have any information.
    Since this picture was taken, it now has a new narrower set of drop bars w/o bar tape and has had a front brake fitted with a blue brake wire. Also, the frame is now the colour in the second picture. I'm sorry i don't have a more recent picture.

    Both tyres are now the VREDSTEN Blue stripe tyres, one of which you can see in the picture.

    I have two recent photos (below) not taken from a great angle but they show EXACTLY what the bike looked like when it was stolen from me.

    The paint work is quite shoddy cause I did it myself, you can a white stripe down the front.

  • Was/how was it locked?

    Unless you are picking up a catalogue, you are never in Argos for only 2 minutes.

  • untill you pay and have to sit in the "theatre for the poor"

  • hey....you should never leave your bike alone in basildon duuuuuudeee!!! thats hell on earth that place!!!

  • I went in to ask if they had a tent and they didn't. So I had no bike no tent :|
    And I didn't lock it because IM A TOTAL FOOL.
    arghhh, so angry at myself.

  • probably picked up by some white loafer, ben sherman wearing, stella lout and trading it for a 20 rock as we speak!!

  • why was you in basildon? i used to live there for a while, not much to do but get drunk, shag and cause trouble, thats why i live in london again ;)

  • Unfortunately I live here, well in Pitsea which isn't really an improvement ha.

    I apologise but I was so chuffed with this I had to use it twice today:

    I hope you get it back, hard lesson to learn.

  • I'm trying to build a new bike now with a crazy tight budget haha.
    Lucky some friends have given me some of their old parts. I've got a crank I bought for the stolen one, a frame, drop bars and a tyre. Haha I'll get there
