Alastair's Dark Blue Felt Z80

Alastair writes;

"Reporting my bike that was stolen tonight, 23rd November at 9pm.
Location - outside Heath Sports and Social Centre [ Heath Hospital], bike resting against bike stand.
I unlocked my bike then realised I'd left my helmet inside, left bike unlocked for 2 minutes and when I returned it was gone.
Description of bike - Felt Z80 road bike, 105 spec, dark blue, one blue tyre and one red tyre. Reasonably good condition.
Other info - A white mongoose bmx with model name 'Subject' was left at the scene. This bmx is now in safe keeping inside the sports and social centre incase it belongs to the thief - possibly finger prints could be taken."

Paulo's Black Charge Duster

Paulo writes;
"I couldn’t believe it when my insurance replacement for my stolen Cube [ featured here ] was also stolen, from the same place!

Charge Duster 2010 Medium hardly used but covered in mud.
It has a leather chain guard and superstar components BB’s in red only 9 gears XT cranks and formula brakes. I’ve changed the ODI grips it only has some cheap ones and riser also with a bright red Brontrager bottle cage. The saddle is a Specialized BG from years past and the seat post is another oldy from an Orange Evo2 I used to have.

Apparently thieves were seen going into Bute Park with Kryptonite lock still attached, someone dialed 999 but police didn’t want to know."

Aleksander's Brown Rudge Ulster Tourist

Aleksander writes;

"I would like to report my stolen bike.
It was stolen on Sunday 21/11/2010 from Cardiff University car park between Cathays train station and Sengennydd Road. The theft took place between 9:30 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. The bike was locked with a cheap combination lock to the only bike rack in the middle of the car park, next to a lone lamp post.
The bike is Rudge Ulster Tourist, a rather old English 3-speed bike. The frame is brown, the mudguards are metallic orange. It had black boxy pannier bags on both side of the rear rack. There was a blue-white helmet with a yellow fabric rain cover in one of the panniers.
I reported the theft to the police and also have the bike on immobilise.com. I will be grateful if you can post this on the blog, thanks"

Kevin's Burgundy Kona Dawg Supreme & White Giant Terrago

Kevin writes;

"I had 2 bikes stolen from my locked garage in the Thornhill area last Friday [12th].
Lesson learned - up and over garage doors are not secure at all, even when locked and appear to be easily accessed with very little damage. Also appears to be targeted theft as nothing else was taken.

The bikes were:

Kona Dawg Supreme - 2008.
Metallic burgundy, black DMR pedals, front crud catcher. It's a full suspension bike and is very noticeable and clearly desirable. Hydraulic disc brakes. Fox Float forks and Fox rear suspension. Handle bars. stem, seat post etc all black ' Race Face.' 18" frame. Mavic wheels & Maxxis Ignitor tyres.

A Womens Silver/White Giant Terrago.
