Ben Deakin has turned to social media to help retrieve his 2 stolen bikes be on the lookout!
“Professional Opportunist” thieves have struck the home of Ben Deakin’s parents where he had left 2 of his downhill bikes. The two bikes were locked up at the home, and Ben believes that the thieves broke in to take jewellery and other expensive items but came across the bikes too.
Both of Ben’s stolen bikes are Pivot Phoenix models, one of them his old Phoenix downhill bike in blue with black RockShox Boxxers.
The 2nd, more distinctive bike, is a custom patined Pivot Phoenix in light blue with pink DMR Bikes branding, featuring Fox 40 downhill forks and an assortment of DMR kit.
