Stolen Trek 1000SL - Mile End, London

Postby countertony » 8 May 2012, 8:29pm

Locked my bike to a Sheffield stand in a residence courtyard on the Mile End campus of Queen Mary, Univ. of London today - I last saw it at about 1 p.m. The one time I didn't use a D-lock (that was locking up a friend's bike, over at Waterloo) and some thieving...thief bolt-croppered the cable. I came back at 5:30 to find the chain cut and the bike gone.

Type: 2006 Trek 1000 SL (essentially identical in appearance to the one at http://www.trekbikes.com/uk/en/bikes/2006/archive/1000 )

Additions: black pannier rack with London Cycling Campaign sticker, Shimano M324 cleated/platform pedals, bell, mounts for lights and cycle computer, mount for Altura rack pack. The rear wheel is from Easton (and prominently logo'd.)

Notes: the bike was marked/registered at a Met Police registration stand using Bike Register, and a warning label was attached to the top tube. The courtyard has a CCTV camera - it is possible that the theft was recorded (I have spoken to campus security and to the police.)

I've had that bike for five years - it feels like I've lost a friend. :cry:

If only you'd had this lock

Hi

Could this be your bike that was listed in Hackney on Gumtree last night?

Just saw the same ad, and the same guy also has another ad for an underpriced genesis!
