- Bikes Stolen – Wirral
Worse post to do got up this morning to go for a ride, just about to make breaky and noticed the side window to my garage blowing in the wind. Feckers………. 2 Bikes gone. Strange though they left my brand new (first ride yesterday) DMR and new children’s bikes that weren't locked and took my Cove Handjob and wife’s Specialized FSR Comp, that were. Only good point is my "proper" bike (Titus Elguapo) was in the house ready to go out this morning, so guess I get the last laugh……Did I mention Feckers……..
Small Specialized FSR Comp – 2008 Model. Standard apart from forks swapped out to Recons from Tora's.
Cove Handjob Orange (well it was last night) 17' frame, I think its a 2007 Frame, but I got it new from Oneplanet this July. Reba forks, Elixer R brakes, Mountain King on the front and race king on the back. Mainly Ritchie. Pretty distinctive, so I'll know it when I see it and they know me. Even worst of all it had my Lupine Wilma 5 on the bars, Got to be useless to them cos they've left the charger. Did I mention feckers……….
But they didn't get this one and its living in the house from now on(insurance will be pleased)…. 🙂 so **** you.

Thanks guys, was just a sickening feeling this morning. All ready to go out for a quick morning blast and all. Garage has recieved some major upgrades today (although it wasn't bad to start with).
Police were pretty good, here in an hour, but not a lot to go on. They think it was probably 2 local scumbags (bike each to ride home) as apposed to a pro job who would have more than likely taken the DMR and the childrens bikes.
Insurance have been good so far, already passed my claim on to wheelies (who say they can replace the Cove) to replace our bikes and light.
Fingers crossed should be sorted quickly. Helps, but still really pissed.
Rob its my Titus El Guapo. Can't believe how lucky I was that it was in the house. Any other night and it would have been outside and probably long gone.

From Barnston, will be out and about locally tomorrow with eyes peeled for robbing scum in trackies, reeboks and 'northface' coats finding it hard to ride
Good luck in recovery.
Both my bikes are kept indoors under the stairs, couple of ground anchors with front wheel removed and hidden, still not 100% safe but makes me feel more comfortable. Ironing board, hoover and rest of understair junk now rehoused in garage, alot easier to replace if/when garage gets screwed.

Bit of an update. No news on the missing bikes (I will find them, one day), bugger!!! But my insurance company have come through (mostly) pretty quickly. The only down side was my light was included in the value of my bike so lost out "a bit" there, but they did pay up for my jacket. But I'll be upgrading my light to one of Chris's nice Troutlight LL's(Thanks Chris). Replaced my wifes bike with the new FSR XC Comp. Decided to go for something different to replace my Cove (couldn't bear the pain, sniff sniff). So one of these is putting the smile back on my face.
Garage and bike security have been heavily upgraded.Posted 10 years ago
