“Hi, I just found your blog, my bike was stolen last Friday (27th May) and I thought this may be worth a shot. I've reported it to the police today, but I'm gutted as it has a serial number but I can't find where I've written it down so I think the chances of recovery are otherwise slim...
Details of Robbery: From the bike rack outside Cardiff International Pool on Friday 27th May sometime between 6pm and 7.30pm. It was locked with a combination lock, which was also gone from the scene. Incidentally other cyclists should be aware that the CCTV around the pool apparently does not cover the bike rack area that they have designated (although there is no notice of this fact in the area) - so be extra wary of chaining your bike up there, although I previously have had no problems in the past, the area was very busy on this day as the school's had just broken up for half term.
Details of the bike: Giant CRS 4 Hybrid - Frame size M - Silver colour, Gent's version. About a year old.
Defining features: The bike was fitted with a drinks cage, pump holder and cat's eye's light fittings on the front handlebars and seatpost. The stopper on the end of the left handlebar was missing, and due to an accident I had previously there is quite a big patch of scraped off paint on the cross bar, and the Front brake mechanism is bent out of shape - but still works. No customisations though, so it's difficult to describe any further specifics.
Stock photograph of the bike is attached, I don't seem to have any of me riding it although I will ask friends. Spec on giant-bicycles.com
It wasn't the most expensive bike in the world, but I really enjoyed riding it, and as it was my primary form of transport so I am pretty gutted by this theft, and would appreciate it if you could list it on your blog in case anyone comes across this bike for sale.”
