Bad craic, but hardly news. This is what they do these days.
Honestly, I'm beginning to think that the only way to keep a bike is to buy a Boardman, slather it in Hammerite and lock it up with an Abus lock which costs 3x the cost of the bike. Then store the whole sorry mess in a freightliner.
We've had two lots of bikes pinched. The thefts stopped when we adopted a large, hairy dog. We give him free reign of the house and garden. I realise this solution isn't ideal for everyone but I'll happily pick up dogsh1t in return for a noisy bugger protecting me and my wee family.
