BIANCHI VIA NIRONE 7 C2C 2012 ROAD BIKE - BRAND NEW CONDITION 55cm £200 reward
was selling my bianchi to a guy who gave me his wallet and phone as an insurance. Low and behold the wallet had a load of pointless cards in it and the phone it turned out was a pay as you go samsung. He never came back. Can't believe I fell for something this simple. If anyone spots this online or in the street, I will give a £200 reward if this leads to me getting it back. It is a 2012 in unused condition, this is what makes it easy to spot, it's a year old but unused. I don't care about the money so much as the principal, and I want to trace this guy, so even if it is someone who he sold it to it could be possible to trace back. If anyone sees anything in this size please contact me, my number's 07925984489

There A website that shows all the bikes being sold on gumtree / ebay other classifieds. Keep a eye on that for your bike. Im always driving around london if i see him i @@@ @@@ @@@@. did you have the serial number for the bike?
Next time I let A stranger try A bike Im Selling Im going to ask them to leave Cash value of bike.
would that be bikeshd.com? I think the frame code is WBK035308F.
Yeah, if it comes up on gumtree or ebay i will arrange for a friend to view it and then turn up with several other friends when the deal is going down and give the man a good seeing to! Not to mention taking my bike back!
Wow that sucks - sorry to hear it. Will keep an eye out. Thanks for sharing your story. Good warning.
SOB! Will keep an eye. Hope you'll find it and find it soon!
I assume you've reported this to the police?

Got any pics?
That is so wrong.
Errrrrr.... seems to match the parts....?
Errrrrr.... seems to match the parts....?
Wow. If it's the guy that operate with this vile method I wonder how he got 15k+ positive feedback on ebay... Mental
Bad luck, what a rotter.
Would help to add the location, time, description of the miscreant, as his M.O. would suggest this is not a 'one-off' theft.
It's got the white writing instead of the black.Just uploaded a pic of what it should look like. Although I requested the frame number from that guy on ebay as I wouldn't put it past someone touching up the decals in black so it doesn't appear to be the same bike. Thanks for the input, if anyone finds anything that leads me getting the bike back or discovering the guy, I will give a £200 reward as I'm currently £700 out of pocket! This happened in herne hill at around 5.30 on Thurday afternoon, he cycled off towards the city centre. Around 6 foot tall, North African/ Morrocan looking, light skin, black beanie smart outfit and shoes. Pretended he was just coming from his graduate job at the bank. I've reported it to the police but I'm pretty sure I've got a better chance of finding it than they do.
One on gumtree now in Glasgow that matches...
Sorry wrong size
Looks the same to me?
3 day auction?
5 feedback? (mostly negative)
Making a point out of having the 'reciept and manuel'??
he's just sold another 2 bikes in the last week also...bit odd for a guy with such limited/shit history
Worth Pming dhughes ASAP??
@keepitmencamp I saw it as soon as it was listed. Little does he know I shall buy the bike back myself
and turn up with the police
Good luck, hopefully he gets completely screwed (and potentially two other people get their bikes back)
thanks alot for the info about the two other bikes I will tell the police about these as well as I'm sure they're stolen. Can't wait to see his face when I turn up to buy it
Please get a friend to take it for a test ride, and get it back that way before letting the police at him. I'd be happy to covertly film the prick's reaction.
he left an economics book in the bag with me and his feedback has negative for some economics books in his profile. claimed he was in a graduate job scheme with a bank. Not for long!
Might be worth making him an offer to buy it now,just in case someone else does so and the listing vanishes.If that happens it may prove hard/time consuming to get ebay to release his details on the basis that untl you've seen it there is no hard proof (as far as their concerned) that it's your bike.
