    Just copied & pasted to a mate who’s a cop in Stanley. Asked him to keep a look out.

    Shitter. What will you do differently to stop it happening again, extra locks on the doors, ground anchor?

    Will keep eyes peeled in Middlesbrough.

    According to the Gazette someone had a Scott Scale 15 also stolen in the last 24hrs in the Teesside area.

    Near Houghton-Le-Spring – will keep eyes peeled. If it gives you any hope, we had two bikes nicked last year, and early this Spring, I saw the wife’s bike being pedalled through Herrington Country Park.

    The rider was a speccy chap in a suit, smiling blisfully at the world. Given that the insurance had paid out and the bike had been replaced, I couldn’t find it within me to push him into the duckpond and retrieve the bike.

    Always worth a few hours driving around the local area – if it’s been nicked by scrotes, they’ll likely ride it around for a bit of a show off before selling (see Jedi’s bike recovery thread).

    Sorry to hear about the bike theft swelper.

    I had both my bikes stolen last Tuesday night from the Barnsley area.

    I drove round the usually scum hangouts and managed to get one of the bikes back on Friday. I called the police but the w**ker claimed he had bought it from the pub so i am still looking for the second bike.

    Have a drive round the rough estates where you live and you have a good chance of spotting your bikes.

    I spend large parts of my day around the scrote areas of C-L-S, Stanley and surrounds. I’ll keep my eyes peeled.

    I’ll keep an eye out mate. I’ll be up that way for a few weeks parents live in Chester. The scrotes probably popped down from Segga, or mebbes Pelton Fell. Hope you get them back!
