    How tall are you (if you don't mind a personal question)? I'd be interested though 57 might be a bit small for me.

    cheers, was straight on to the police. Since I moved here I've been using the Langster instead of my Croix de Fer, as a form of insurance* against this happening. And I'm moving out in a couple of weeks anyway.

    *backed up by actual insurance.

    And just south from where that happened, I've just lost my Langster to a gang of youths. Didn't bother letting them go through the charade of pretending to be tooled up, I was a minute from home and figured the bike was an easier loss than phone/wallet etc. Stay safe out there!

    cheers, it's a bit old as Evans in Crouch End is shut now. First I'll see if I can make out the number on the frame and get in touch with Bike Register.

    seemed the most relevant thread to bump...

    Does anyone know if the Met always use Bike Register for these? I had my Croix de Fer stamped outside Finsbury Park station a while ago, and am sure I registered it all online, but there's nothing on bikeregister.com

    Are there any other databases I could check, or a way of checking the number that's stamped on the frame?

    These Passats were the car I used to want to have if I ever became a responsible grown-up.

    3rd dibs or whatever number we're at now

    Does this one have eyelets for racks and mudguards? I used to have the red steel Langster which didn't, made it less useful for commuting than I liked.

    Sue!

    That could've been her name, I didn't ask.

    Descending Crouch Hill at a nice pace, Transit ahead of me is turning right, filter down his left-hand side, Corsa appears from nowhere, carries on appearing from nowhere, my first reaction is "wow, that hurt a lot less than I expected", second reaction "oh shit, I'm actually still going and heading straight for the kerb". Was completely calm in talking to the driver, but I'm now shaking at my desk, drinking sugary tea and trying to tell myself that it really wasn't my fault but I should probably be more careful when filtering.
