    Some scrote will be coming back for them later on, I’d imagine. Move them, maybe?

    Look on Facebook for stolen Specialized posts.

    If you find a blue Geometron it’s probably mine.

    As an alternative to being nicked, how about someone was injured and they ‘hid’ the bikes before hoping to collect them later? Where they are is going to determine the likelihood of this. Always wondered what I do with my bike if I had to call an ambulance as assume they wouldn’t take the bike too.

    Anyway, hope they are reunited with their owners

    Any chance they’ve been parked/stashed there whilst someone goes for a climb?

    I don’t get why the wheel would be off on one of them for any scenario

    Snuck off for a bit of extra curricular exercise, mid puncture repair?

    Stops it being instantly nicked, sort of implies there might have been an incident / breakage and the bikes have been stashed for collection later?

    Looks like the rear axle has been put back in the hub.
    I’ve asked her to report it local but she was mid ride and has inermittent signal.

    Should we be packing a Camo tarp in future, incase of emergencies.

    She has let some one at the Ladybower Inn know where they were and has checked on her way past on the last leg of the ride and they are no longer there.

    I’ve stashed a bike with wheels off and skewers / axles in my pocket previously but only in out of the way places so it is a thing.

    I’ve hidden a broken one, then running, getting a bus and coming back in the van to fetch it later.
    They would be much better hidden in that scenario.
    If it was intended to ride to a hill and climb it on foot they would be both much better hidden and locked to a tree or something.
    That looks dodgy as ****.

    There were two scrotes riding around the ladybower inn car park on similar looking bikes yesterday with a third one in a silver corsa. Saw them eyeing up my bike on the rack when we were sitting outside having a post ride pint, corsa pulls round to block my view of the car and as soon as I went over to investigate they buggered off. Two other bikers who were packing up said they saw them with big bolt cutters

    Sounds like the lads who “owned” these two bikes found them a bit too hot and stashed them until they could more discretely transport them to another location.

    If only there was some sort of discrete GPS device stashed in the steerer tube that could’ve alerted the rightful owner of their location when someone with an iPhone was within range.

    I hope they rightful owners are reunited or at least appropriately insured.
