    Brings me great sadness posting this, but last night/this morning our shed door was bolt-cut open and locks cut through, taking both mine and my wife's bikes.

    Hers is a Vitus Razor, mine slightly more distinctive, a copper Brother All Day with tanwalls, wide bars and a front rack. Both the bikes have baby seat mounts on the downtubes, as seen in the photos. Small chance, but if anyone spots anything there will be a reward for any information. Or at least throw a lock on it!

    Happened in Finsbury Park N4, just off Brownswood Road.

    Imported from Copenhagen from the now closed Track Bike Shop — https://www.facebook.com/pages/category/­Bicycle-Shop/TrackBikeShop-1395726494286­63/

    This is a fun, fast and responsive bike that has served me very well over the years riding in London. Selling to make space for something more child-friendly. It's a bit mucky in the photos, but will be cleaned before collection.

    A few marks and dings from use but structurally sound and never been crashed. All painting chipping seen in photos is due to locking up, not crashing.

    This is not drilled for a rear brake so this is not suitable for a single-speed conversion and should be ridden as a fixed gear. Sold as seen but pedals not included.

    Collection only from N4.

    I'd like £400 all in — I'd prefer to not split if possible but will take any sensible and reasonable offers.

    My friend Jowey has had his Stinner Refugio nicked from inside his flat in North London. It's a pretty unique and noticeable bike setup.

    — Custom forks
    — SRAM Red eTap
    — ENVE wheels
    — Compass gumwall tyres

    Hit me up on here if you see this about or hear anything. Not an easy one to miss.

    Ripped a sweatshirt and rain jacket in a crash two weeks ago — sent off to Rapha for repairs and had them finished and returned less than 10 days after I posted them, practically as good as new. 10/10 next level service.

    Unfortunately I've had it for longer than the Kask replacement scheme covers and I also do not have the original proof of purchase which places like Wiggle require in order to qualify for a replacement...

    Cheers thread, will probably just bin it.

    What does one do with a cracked helmet? I came off on Friday afternoon and hit the deck pretty hard and as a result my helmet is completely fucked. I'm guessing the best thing to do with it is just bin it, correct? Or can it be recycled somehow?

    Potentially interested in a pair of the bib shorts pending a few questions. I'll slide into your PMs...
