  • Impressive. Must've been a good hub.

  • I don’t understand what happened there. Why is the rim bent like that? Why is it apparently cut but the tyre isn’t? Why, and how, is the lock shackle mangled like that? Did they try and compress the shackle arms together, leading to that crack on the grey lock plastic cover?

  • More than one incident. One: take bike and leave wheel. Two: kick-in the rim/bend the lock etc. Three: cut out the hub for keeps. Not even the same person?

  • Someone stole the bike leaving the wheel.

    Someone else took a fancy to the hub and tried to use the wheel as leverage to break the lock resulting in damage to lock and rim but ultimately was unsuccessful so then resorted to cutting the spokes.

    Would be my guess.

    The bit on the rim that looks cut is probably just the joint. It’s opposite the valve which is where it tends to be.

  • I think hub was cut out because the wheel was secured in with a pitlock or the like.

  • Outside a music festival. They’ve obviously bought a quite sturdy lock so must have some grasp of physics?

  • Middle of Carnival next to a sound system. I guess the hope is that there’ll always be people there so it won’t get twoced?

  • what's the point for the crims in stealing what I assume from the rest of the bike was a probably old / low spec set of wheels?
    just for the scrap value?

  • Through two spokes.

  • Of course it's possible this person had a d-lock cut through at the same time and we should never blame the victim but...
