    Ace. Well done. Bike ok? Was this the Ritchey?

    Edit: as Coventry eagle says, good idea to notify the police as well!

    I wouldnt faff around. Iirc this is that lovely Ritchey Breakaway disc gravel bike? Cant be many of them about. I'd recognise one of mine in the street as well. I'd be all over retreiving it by what ever means and follow up with the paperwork afterwards. If needs Id sit there with a hack saw and spare blades for half an hour. What are the police going to say even if they do bother to stop if they see it? I have sat in Cambridge town centre cutting a bike free years ago when I lost the key. No one batted an eyelid and just walked past me.

    Unlikely the current "owner" is the person who nicked it anyway.

    Yeah as many locks as possible and take all the parts you can off it - not like you can be nicked for doing that. Go back first thing with an angle grinder and retrieve the frame

    My neph lunched his alfine using a chinese motor kit. Too much torque. Obvs there are different motor units. Went back to derailleurs

    Yeah, they will probably work, but personally I would go for something like a mulefut 27.5 x 50 (internal). Pop up pretty cheap from time to time.

    That green frame is very pretty!

    If you fancy a drop bar fat, have a look at @substandard8 on Insta. Rides a drop bar Ti fat smokestone. Think he has got the weight of it down to 10kgs. Proper quick as well. Finished 4th Gbduro this year.

    A fat 4" tyre will be pretty squirmy on 42mm internal rims. Bit too narrow imo.

    I would still go Hope over WI hubs. Not as pretty, but available adaptors mean much more versatile across different Fat standards.

    Thats a lovely looking bike. Mate in RVA has an FBM 22" BMX - really nicely made bike.
