My housemate and I had three bikes stolen from us in New Acton. We believe they where stolen the day after boxing day.
2012 Trek Superfly 100 AL Pro – Medium frame. Black, blue and white in colour with Maxxis Ikon tires (actual bike pictured below before tires where changed):
2011 Giant Trance X1 – Medium frame. Silver and black in colour with Maxxis Ignitor tires, a wide Pro handlebars and Jet Black flat pedals (actual bike pictured below):
2012 Giant Anthem X 29er 1 – Small frame. White, black and grey in colour with Shimano SPD Trail pedals (pictured below):
Please pass on any info you might have to me or the police.
Are you sure they were stolen? Seems entirely likely to me that when the third bike sung its giant anthem, that put the second bike into a giant trance (giant anthems always have that effect on me), which allowed the superfly to wing it over the fence with the other two in tow.
@trevar im pretty sure a 6 legged man stole these just imagine him riding off into the sun set like a centapide
There definitely seems to be a large and probably even organised ring of bike thieves on the lookout for pricier bikes. Having been a victim of bike theft myself, I definitely feel your pain. Hope you get them back.
I’ve since taken steps to secure & even track my new bike in case of theft, but frankly I would seriously consider bustin’ a kneecap or two if I ever caught a thief in the act. Just try to ride away on a stolen bike again with a shattered patella.
We had three bikes stolen in Braddon, keep checking with the police, when we went in to collect our bikes last Thursday they had over 20 bikes in the lock up.
At least it gives you a chance to replace these things with something actually good, ring Joe’s Motorcycles, they will help you out.
I found a decent looking mountain bike (none of the ones pictured though) dumped in Watson a few days ago (because the lazy pricks presumably think it’s easier to steal another one than to fix a flat tyre). I dropped it off at the cop shop in Civic.
Have you checked the number one reseller of stolen goods Cash Converters?
Are you in favour of Light Rail for Canberra?
