@Sumo >> OMG !!!!! yes that's it... have just PM'd the guy ...
... NEW build up project ...
am looking for a NOS Planet X Carbon Pro TRACK frame (or complete bike) in M or S , with forks taking front brake as road fixie...
Ok, so this the Official thread for Stolen bikes... have already posted but let me do so again here ... as am recovering from the numbness and in some aspect morning the loss of a beloved GF :-(
... but my fantasy of catching a bike thief in "flagrant delit" nicking someone's cherished bike is bordering into Texas chainsaw scenes, where fingers are quite simply snapped off for good ;-)
Stolen from lower Sloane Street - Friday / Saturday 3 March 2018
Posted - https://stolen-bikes.co.uk/stolen-bikes/planet-x-carbon-pro/
Been looking at ebay, preloved, onceridden, gumtree, freeads, shpock, loot ...
Reporting Monday to obtain crime number etc...
@AlphaOmega - Cheers !
PS: I presume Eagle Eyed cyclist will snap a picture of the person's face up close and say
"nice bike, where did you get it ? "
if they suspect it's a stolen one ? ... well, am guessing and don't know what the etiquette is , but I can presume if the frame / cycle is confirmed to be stolen by the owner, what follows is to upload the pic to Facebook asking if anyone can identify ... which is like a "naming & shaming" of the shister ?
Have got myself to blame, but it smacks of planning - what are the odds thieves carry bolt cutters under their jackets on the streets of London for opportunist bike thieving at night ?
I did lock it that way simply because it felt easier to unlock/lock, as one has to go up some stairs to street level, and then go past a gate...which was unlocked since Wednesday night for rubbish collection on Thursday... I did not think a thief would persevere, which suggest a planned return with bolt cutters on Friday night ...
