BIKES STOLEN – Halifax
Two bikes stolen from shed 18th/19th Nov 2013 – locked, anchored and alarmed – obviously targeted and came prepared. Hipperholme, Halifax
2012 Cube LTD SL size18 Grey Metal Green – stock apart from Schwalble Rocket Ron front and back and stem angle reversed.
2013 Merida racelite 900 size54 – stock apart from BBB 11-28T cassette and 105 SPD SL pedals
Absolutely gutted to have lost these, would appreciate any help and people keeping an eye out 🙁Posted 4 years ago
thanks for the help.
Can’t be sure what time or even when between Sat 16th – morning Wed 20th. Busy working and not been out to shed. alarm sounded when i went in shed this morning so was still active – but obviously not heard anything through either night. grrr
will contact local bike shops. keeping an eye on ebay, gumtree…
plenty of retweets on twitter – hope somebody spots themPosted 4 years agoAntibobMember
Huddersfield Cube & Merida dealer is on the look out also.
There seems to have been a lot of bike thefts in the HD, HX area lately and has been confirmed by a local Bobby (Brighouse Condor rider had 3 road bikes taken recently).
So maybe worth taking extra precautions if you live in the area, especially in the run up to Christmas.Posted 4 years agoalibongo001Subscriber
Best of luck in getting them back. I have shared on twitter.
This is worrying me as I live in Hipperholme too.
How do you think they knew that there were nice bikes in the shed, is this one of the Strava thefts we hear of?
Where abouts in Hipperholme are you?Posted 4 years ago
i think the strava privacy zones should protect the exact location within 1km – I have a few set up around the area covering my house so shouldn’t be able to pinpoint the address either…(I’m not entirely sure how effective/secure this is though)- it could be strava related but I think it’s more likely that I’ve been spotted and or watched. None of the other neighbours (without bikes) had their sheds broken into so would suggest this?
saying that – I’ll be ‘starting’ my rides from the end of the road in future!Posted 4 years agothegeneralistMember
Sorry to hear about the theft.
Please could you tell me what ground anchor/chain combination was used?
This is not meant as a dig at you, more as a method of getting info on what works and what doesn’t. Security companies are keen to tell everyone how fabulous their stuff is, but we seldom hear the other side of the story.
Would really appreciate it if you’d tell. I got 4 bikes nicked last year and want to keep the new ones safe, and knowing what doesn’t work would help that process.

yeah no probs. nothing special… seems very naive of me now but thought it would do the job along with an alarm in deterring them…
looks like they cut through it no probs
a substantial motorbike chain lock in future I thinkPosted 4 years ago
