    Basically after the restaurant we went across the road to the pub which is where my drunkenness levels went through the roof and apparently at some point I just ran off. Blacked out for a bit and came to my senses at the kebab shop/talking to the rickshaw driver. So I think if I had moved my bike it would have been during that blackout bit when I was on my own. Had a good look yesterday all round that area and couldn't see it anywhere.

    Not sure I can because location and WiFi were both switched off. Looking into it though, might be something else on the phone doing tracking

    Sorry to hear about your Ottrot. A Parlee's not such a bad replacement though!

    I think I might go down the pub bike type route for my next one. Something I don't need to worry about.

    Cheers all.

    Any luck looking at Google map tracking your location?
    Or if not, would bank card usage act as a bread crumb trail?

    Never have location turned on on my phone sadly but did indeed manage to retrace my steps by looking at my bank app. Not a sign of it though unfortunately.

    Was just reminded about the bike sellers on Brick Lane, annoyingly missed it today but will be going up next Sunday to have a look.

    Lost my Serotta last night (probably stolen but there's a chance I drunkenly left it somewhere different to where I thought it was and forgot).

    If anyone sees it being sold online (or simply just locked near Shaftsbury Ave) please send me a message.

    Currently this is the best pic I've got (will try to find clearer one):

    Mostly Dura Ace 7700 on it, Araya rims, Rolls saddle - one difference to the photo is new blue/green/silver camo pattern bar tape.

    Thanks

    So I have lost yet another bike. RIP

    Got very pissed on sake last night at a Japanese restaurant and failed to return home with it.

    It was locked with a Kryptonite mini outside the Bloomsbury Tavern at the top of Shaftsbury Avenue. I've just been back to where I left it and and there's no sign of the bike or the lock so there's a small chance I cycled it somewhere else and it's just locked up. I remember taking one of those rickshaws from a kebab shop on Charing Cross Road to my house so if it is locked up still, it'll be somewhere in the vicinity.

    It's a blue/green Serotta with "Coeur d'acier" written on it although it's actually a Fierte (my own paint job), Alpha-Q carbon fork, Dura-Ace 7700 groupset and an Araya+Dura Ace wheels. Only photo of it I can currently find is this one below:

    Only difference is new green/blue/silver camo pattern bar tape. I will try to find a clearer photo to post.

    If anyone sees it on Gumtree or eBay or anything, or even just locked up somewhere near Shaftsbury Ave, please send me a message on here. I have actually had two stolen bikes recovered, one of them thanks to the help of someone on this forum, so I have a small amount of faith that I'll see it again.....

    Many thanks
    William
