    Any further specifics? Colours etc and any usual spec changes.

    Also were they locked at all, it's useful for us all to know which locks are vulnerable

    Sorry,

    The Road Speed L had a non-stock Mavic front wheel which was slightly buckled. It was a light yellow colour. Beige suede seat also non-stock.

    The Mongoose was essentially a beater. No break shoes. Pretty knackered wheels. Generally in crap condition all round.

    They were locked together, but stupidly, not to anything. The lock was an Asus D-Lock, but this wouldn't really make any odds as they weren't locked to anything (The assholes broke through the gate and round the back)

    Had 2 bikes stolen last night from West Norwood. They were locked in my garden

    Koga Miyata Road Speed L
    Mongoose Maurice 2010

    Not holding out much hope. But if anyone spots either of them being sold please mail me at

    Thanks guys. Really gutted about the Koga.. I loved it. :(

    Miyata frames are around the same weight as Reynolds 531. Usually they come with all Shimano bits. £450 seems a little steep tho.

    They said this was the case with me. Only no card. Nothing left with neighbour. Poof. Bike gone.

    Paid by PayPal. I have been in lengthy discussions with the guy who sold it to me. He's been nothing but completely helpful - Even to the extent of phoning premium rate lines in the UK from Holland...

    I understand that it's in the hands of the seller to a certain degree. He has done his best to track down what has happened to the bike. But keeps hitting brick walls when he has to deal with HDNL / YODEL... All we want is Proof of Delivery. Neither of us seem to be able to get it from them.

    Just put in Yodel Reviews or HDNL reviews in Google for other tales of absolute woe. Just awful.

    Sorry to bore you all with a tale of woe.

    I ordered a bike on here a while back (4 weeks or so ago) and it was shipped by the reputable and very helpful person on here I bought it from, by TNT Post Netherlands.

    On the 8th September it allegedly arrived at it's destination. According to the TNT Post tracking system. Only it hadn't arrived. Nor was there any form of calling card.

    I then go away on holiday and contact the supplier, who tells me that the Home Delivery Network are the courier who dealt with it once it reached the UK.

    Once I get back from holiday I call them to ask where my parcel is. They tell me it's gone 2 doors down to my neighbour. I knock on their door and they have not seen it. They weren't even in on the 8th September.

    I am now in the process of trying to get information about where my bike has gone. A very difficult process, as they refuse to give me a proof of delivery - The driver didn't leave a calling card, nor did he get the name of the person who signed for it.

    There is literally no end in sight. I have lost a £275 bike and nobody seems to be able to help.

    So .. Word of warning. Do not, under any circumstances use The Home Delivery network or Yodel to deliver your precious cargo. They are completely shit, will lose it, chuck it in a skip or simply steal it.
