Bikes & accessories worth £50,000 stolen
Last time I was in there they had a replica of Steve Peats bike, carbon everything, for £8,500!!’ 😯
So £50,000 sounds about right! I’d say i’d keep my eyes peeled, but I doubt they’ll be anywhere in the vicinity of Bury by now. That’s a big building! Cutting through a roof like that sounds like people who know what they’re doing! And clearly knew what they wanted! I’d love to know how they shift this stuff on. I’m sure I’m not alone there!Posted 4 years ago
Cycle Addicts in Rochdale was done at the weekend too apparently
Again? That’s twice in the 18 months he’s been open.
Edit: it appears so. Here are some pictures of what was taken.

I use most often) not far apart done in a few days. I wonder if it’s the same people? Hope the police get them.simmySubscriber
At Leisure Lakes Bury.
Anyone who knows the area will know the showroom is on the first floor so took some guts to go through the roof.Posted 4 years agoprojectMember
One of the problems is with bike shops is they usually have all the expensive stuff on display, just secured with a flimsy wire through the wheels, easilly cut releasing all the bikes, poor recording cctv, if any fitted,older buildings with access from the roof or rear doors, in properley secured, or ones that open inwards.
So bike shop owners, cctv, with secure dvd storage, decent alarm connected to monitoring station,
Steel plate on rear doors, with metal gate on the inside, hinges bolted through the brickwork,with decent locks, dont lock during opening times if a fire exit,
perforated roller shutters on all g/f windows and leave a light on at night so people can see in.
Razor wire could be installed in roof void, but then in a fire some fire man is going to seriously hurt himself,Posted 4 years ago
