STOLEN - Boardman Race Hybrid Bike

Postby Dino » 13 Jul 2014, 12:12am

This wasn't the first post I was hoping to write....

Advertised one of my bikes for sale on Gumtree and some little scrote turned up and nicked it. Left me his iPhone (probably nicked too) as security for a test ride.

Police said that if no one reports the iPhone stolen I can have it back after 28 days. Ironically that's worth more than the bike.....

Here are some pics, if any of you fellow cyclists spot anything for sale that looks like this please let me know.

Distinctive scratch on frame:

Thin Shimano rims

Brand new Lizard Skin grips & Wellgo pedals

Will have a word with my contents insurance on Monday as I have bikes and valuables covered but I doubt they will pay given that I effectively 'gave' him the bike.....

Feeling embarassed, disappointed and a just a touch angry with myself for letting this happen!!! :o

Very sorry to hear about this Dino. Where did this happen? (So that those of us in that area can be on heightened alert).
