    I assume everyone has peeked through http://veloshare.com/

    Nice site, but needs more bikes.

    Not sure how many here use Twitter, but I've set up an account http://twitter.com/CycleBlogs. It tracks the rss feeds from a variety of cycling blogs and tweets each time there is a post to one of these blogs.

    It's automatically updated from about 30 cycling blogs, but if anyone would like to suggest a blog to add please do.

    Anyway, it's hopefully of use to some people here.

    Lucky this time, Jon.
    Did they get the scum that stole it?

    They apparently have photos of him and know who he is

    Much to my joy and surprise my Holdsworth has been recovered.

    I reported it to Tower Hamlet's market officers Martin and Neil yesterday(Details here- http://www.londonfgss.com/thread3948.htm­l) and lo and behold they found it today at Brick Lane market.

    They are very nice blokes and asked me to pass on the importance of taking photos and putting a serial number on your bike so that if it does get stolen it really increases the chances of them recovering it.

    Really sorry to hear about your loss.

    Was this the chain you meant by marksman?

    No it wasn't this lock, perhaps a slightly weaker looking version of this.

    EDIT; just seen number

    Bummer, what lock was it? I'm getting up early this Sunday for a bit of Brick Lane action, post a number and I'll txt if I see it, or something

    The lock was given to me by a friend. It's not a D-lock, but what I thought was a pretty sturdy chain (Marksman, if that means anything to anyone) although after seeing it in it's cut through state perhaps it's more flimsy than it looks.

    sorry to hear that mate.it seems to be the season of bike theft. I hope you find it, I'll be looking.

    Thanks. What annoys me is that I'm so cautious about locking my bike up at night. It was literally left for an hour an a half outside my work between 18:30 and 20:00 with what I thought was a sturdy lock.

    people, post your phone numbers if you've lost a bike. that way if your bike is spotted, we can slap a lock on it, then call you sharpish to come collect.

    i'ved added my phone number. Thanks.
