- Always hoped I’d never be starting this thread.
What’ya singing there?
Not sure, but at the time I was under the impression that it would somehow make me go faster. Or at least ease the pain.
My normal old commuter bike has suffered a bent hangar, so while I’m waiting for a new hangar to arrive, I was using my rockhopper to get to college for a few days. Really annoyed. Just so unlucky.
Thanks a lot longweight, really means a lot to me.Posted 8 years ago
Had my bike stolen from Eastleigh today.
Specialized 08 black RockHopper.
White Rockshox Recon forks.
Rear wheel is a red hope pro II, with a 717 rim.
UST Continental Mountain Kings. The ones with TUBELESS written across the sidewalls in big white letters.
Its my only mountain bike. So I’m missing what was going to be a really good ride tonight, and probably one on Thursday, and probably one on Sunday. Dont want to think past then right now.
Only real picture I’ve got of it here. Not very useful unfortunately.
If anyone sees it, follow the guy who is riding it home, then give me their address.

Sorry to hear that 🙁 Is that the lock? Unfortunately it sometimes takes an event like this to prove to people how w*nk cable locks are. People think they will be ‘reet until this happens. I caught two scrotes just finished cutting through (a not inexpensive) one of mine. D-Lock D-Lock D-LockPosted 8 years agoCaptainFlashheartMember
That’s a shitter and no mistake. As mentioned above, cable looks are worthless, unless they’re monster Abus or Krypt ones.
WCA and the rest of the Scumpton massive will, I am sure, keep an eye out. From the days when I ran a shop in town, could I recommend that you also ring around the bike shops? Let ’em know that it’s gone and offer doughnuts in reward. They’re on your side….!Posted 8 years ago
Its a shimano deore hollowtech crankset.
The really annoying part is that I just purchased a load of parts for the bike, including cassette, chain, new chainrings etc. as all the old stuff was really worn. And now I dont need any of it.
Think you might be right about cable locks, I’ll look into getting a good D lock next time.
