British Downhill Series have just posted about stolen bikes being recovered, after the owner spotted them on Pinkbike, ip address was tracked and four hours later knock knock Scumbag arrested! No more details atm
Show me pics of your stolen bikes
Great idea Fieldy...thanks for keeping it going
My Santa Cruz Superlight was stolen from Maidstone on the evening of January 9th. I'd been up at the Cyclopark in Gravesend, and someone either followed me home or saw me putting the bike away as they took only this bike, leaving my hardtail and lots of tools etc. No sign of her yet, but Barclays have been great with the insurance, and I'm just trying to man up and get myself out of the 'what's the point in getting another one as they'll only steal it' phase!

Seems there are more and more going missing....but some are being found!
This was stolen from Chepstow about 9 months ago. Unlikely to be found but there can't be that many PA frames with a 'Every time you change gear God kills a kitten' sticker on them...
Not a kitten lover but hey ho!
Eyes peeled peeps
Anyone lost a Trek road bike ? Wilmslow police want to reunite if with its rightful owner.
No takers on the Trek???
I had mine stolen back in 2010 was gutted but knew i'd never see it again so had an insurance replacement.Not long after a very kind member of the STW community found it on Fleabay at a cash converters !!
So some do get found .
Reassurance from Pitcherpro that some do get found
My Specialized Rockhopper was stolen on 12th November last year from Newport south wales, it has some pretty distinctive marks so i'd know it was mine! If anyone spots it let me know. Apologies for the rubbish photo, I never actually got to ride it.
Great thread, let's hope that we get some recoveries of our own
It's Worth posting anything that you see that looks sus(bike related).
Spotted both a Canyon Full Suss and and Norco long travel downhill bike in Stalybridge/Ashton Under Lyne, East of Manchester recently.
Just a heads up really in case anyones lost anything that sounds like them. Both times the rider didn't fit the bike.
oh god this thread is worse than looking at the dogs home website :cry:. good luck everyone
Cheers Jonah.........and bump!!!
This my first post. The guy from Holy Spokes recommended I post on here.
My bike was stolen from a garage on Otley Old Road 29/01/2014. It's a Kona Jake the Snake. Key things to look out for are the wheels. They are RS10's that don't match the frame colours - I had the frame replaced under warranty after a year so the wheels have blue and white highlights, while the frame is green and black. It has a black Charge Spoon saddle, mtb spd's, a Topeak rear rack and mudguards.
It's a pretty unusual bike. I've not seen anyone else riding a Jake the Snake. Let me know if you spot it.
tbh this thread is a great idea, if only to keep a record and create exposure at the number of bikes being stolen - would be great in a case to the police to take it more seriously!
yep i agree with plyphon. this should be pinned
Am I alliowed to agree?? Being the OP?
'waves at pitcherpro'
Also found an alpine recently but owner refuses to answer emails to confirm he got it back or not. bit weird..
both the alpine and pitcherpros pitch was approx 3 month after stolen so dont give up...
people do recognise bikes, especially if they own one similar as was the case both times with me
Stolen last night in Cambuslang.

back to the top
Gutted for you chief1409, getting one nicked is bad enough.
Looking at some of the other threads of late it appears these bikes do resurface after a while. Please help find any of the above bikes
How many people were using Strava prior to their bikes getting stolen
There's a lot if bikes going missing at the moment. If you can, please post pics of them on here and I will continue to bump it to the top every other day. Just might jog someone's memory!!
I will put a pic of my Santa Cruz TRc when I can!
Matt23 no problem.
Gonna keep this thread going as long as I can...or until folk stop stealing bikes!!
