    If that’s not stolen I will eat me feet.

    …unless someone is just minted and DGAF.

    I’d be a bit miffed if I took a bike into the LBS only for them to post pictures of it online and accuse me of stealing it…

    Could it be it was already stolen. She brings it in. Her mate nicks it again. Boosh, £5k insurance fraud.
    Or is that just my mind.

    What butcher said.

    Does seem an odd bike to pootle around town on though. I suspect any nicked Jones’ would be pretty well known though…

    Oooh, are you offended?

    I felt it was worth throwing it up online on the slim chance that this is a stolen bike.

    …is all this is about.

    To be fair, if I had a bike so hideously disgusting to look at I’d want it gone too…

    I’m outraged.

    I’d guess if someone had a Jones stolen they’d report to the police so can’t you give them the frame number to check?

    You have that bike do you lend it to anybody? Do you need a LBS to fix a flat?

    If it is kosher then wow the world is so full of surprises

    PS If you were concerned as a shop owner could you not ask the police rather than post?

    I expect that like all jones bikes, it has been bought by someone with a fundamental lack of understanding of what a bike is and how the frame should work…

    … still, at least it has been built by a beard wielding man with a waiting list eh?

    ;P

    Maybe Balotelli bought it for someone?

    Not offended. And if it is stolen, I hope whomever it belongs to gets it back.

    But just asking if anyone had one stolen would be enough. Enquire within. It’s not like there’s that many.

    Thing is that she probably has no idea of its value and there are some well off people who wouldn’t bat an eyelid at lending out a £5k bike. I know people that lend friends £50k+ cars or ask them to drop them off etc. They are just not bothered by it, I’d say that if she thought it was hookey she would not have taken it to a shop especially for a puncture. It can just be a bit of a mad world!

    The pedals do not match … A bit like a Ferrari with cheapo event tyres innit.

    Ya, high possibility it is stolen.

    Yeah, but he has obfuscated his email address, and can anyone really be bothered to have to edit that shit?

    Yes, me, because the wife has gone out drinking and there’s jack on the telly except some bollocks about Nazi gold.

    Can’t someone quickly call the police if it is stolen?

    Then can we auction the girl off like in “Taken”?

    I’m 99.9% certain that’s my bike.. I’d need to check back for frame number but the Phil Wood hubs, hope brakes, modded crank together with dura ace thumbies, brooks saddle, Erikson post, prob six spd give it away. I knew someone didn’t know what they nicked. Is next stop Police???

    Contact OP. Tell them not to release the bike, then contact police.

    Proof that to the untrained eye they’re a lady’s bike anyway.
