Alright guys, as you’ve guessed from the title, i had my single stolen today from melbourne uni @ 2:30’ish (you’d think in a main thoroughfare someone would notice a guy going at it with bolt cutters…)… unfortunately i finished getting it all together on Monday so I didn’t have pics as yet.
But if anyone sees a:
Red front tyre, black rear.
Tange 900 Double Butted frame (classic steel setup, horizontal ends etc)
Shimano 105- cranks, hubs, levers, brakes etc.
Only top half my drop handle bars were taped
I’m keeping an eye out on ebay and gumtree but if anyone knows any other auction sites that it might pop up or sees my ugly arse setup it’d be sweet if you let me know.
I will reimburse anyone who incurs legal costs when delivering severe beatings to caught thief.
it was a really thin cable, they almost managed to snap it by pulling at it but came back with some wire cutter of some sort and just wheeled it away. i was horrified to see it happen, although i was a few storeys up i was yelling at them but they didnt hear.
i run a pretty thick cable with a pretty crappy lock, i’ve been keeping indoors til i get something better though
Sorry to hear… to late for the lock now though.
May be a pointless exercise but report to police at least, I heard that sometimes that may help.
I’ve had bikes stolen it’s the shitiest feeling, knowing someone else has your bike and wont give it back, have a look out but you’ll come to the realisation soon that you’ll have to get another.
Cash convertors. Pretty much everything they sell is stolen.
Pawn shops, although not many of them are left these days.
Apparently at one stage there was a small racket stealing bikes from Melb and driving them in batches up to NSW where they would sell them. The Melb Uni guards knew about it because heaps of bikes where being stolen from Melb Uni.
If you can stand having your bike just slightly defaced, you can take it to the copshop and they’ll put an engraving on it so it can be identified and cant be sold at cash-converters n places.
Its free too.
