    Beloved singlespeed BMC MC01 team edition was nicked outside a pub in Farnham this evening (the fence was smashed to get the bike free). And I’m gutted. I get to Farnham station and there is the scamp about to carry it onto the train.
    I remonstrate somewhat forcibly and he keeps complaining that is his despite me having the key to get the Hiplok off. I just give up, kick the shit out his knee and when he drops I get on the train with my bike and head home.
    Almost makes up for the 3 bikes I never got back.

    Edit: I’m 68, weedy and try to keep out of trouble. But I just lost it.

    Were you wearing hard soled cycling shoes?

    Glad you’re ok and got the bike back!

    What shoes for knee kicking?

    Sadly I am wearing my nice comfy Sketchers after a long day at the test centre. It was probably like a chiropractor’s kiss rather than the Jack Reacher restructuring of his lower skeleton that I intended.
    Luckily for me. At least I stopped when he was on the floor. I’ve never lost it like that before.

    Fight night on the train to Guildford! I’d buy the t-shirt.

    From what I can see I should be able to request the footage.
    Let’s hope the drunk scooter doesn’t do it first…

    Rule one. Stop kicking when they are on the floor. Never jump on their head.
    (And it wasn’t as cool as that. He was younger, bigger but proper passed. I rather wish he hadn’t panicked when I mentioned getting the police involved.)

    Nice one. I hope you really bent it the wrong way and messed up some tendons.

    Plot twist: your key didn’t fit and it was an identical bike.
