I got my bike taken off me at knifepoint last night along the Lea Valley route by Springfield park. I was with two other cyclists and all of our bikes were taken, one of them being my custom built polo bike which I'm really hoping will turn up somewhere soon.
Custom built bike polo frame with columbus cromor tubing, fillet brazed, hooded track dropouts and painted black (with a slight sparkle!).
26" wheels (front disc mavic 317 black/black, rear has no brake and a white industries freewheel.
Avid BB7 x silver shimano DX lever with a silver disc rotor guard.
My seatpost doesn't match the rest of the bike. It's an old silver aluminium post with black fluting and a specialized saddle.
When it was taken last night it had a mallet strapped to top tube, 'polo is okay' sticker on top tube and a sticker of two faces on the head tube, also pink spokey dokes on the rear wheel.
This happened around 10pm when 4 masked guys stepped out of the one shaded part of that path next to the allotment. It looked like they fled Hackney way.
I'm offering a reward.
