    I had my lovely 2003 s-works fsr stolen from my lock up recently. Any Brightonians see it about then please get in touch, it’s got a crime number from the police in case a ‘citizens’ arrest is carried out 😈

    It’s a large frame in red and has lots of custom parts. Silver Fox f90sl forks, 717 rims, nobby nic tyres, gold hope bulb hubs, hope x2 tech brakes with 203 fr and 160 r rotors, s-works carbon bars and seatpost, specialized stem, black hope headset, m970 xt cranks, xtr rear mech, yeti grips, three carbon cable rub pads on the headtube.

    Any news please get in touch, a reward is offered, you have my permission to use reasonable force to restrain the scrote πŸ˜‰

    Thanks, Shawn.

    That’s helpful jimmyjames. Thanks. The description is pretty detailed if you know your bikes.
    I was going to post a pic later anyway πŸ˜‰

    I don’t know my bikes, I’m afraid. Will keep my eyes peeled. Seriously, I didn’t mean top be rude but it’s much easier (for me at least) to remember a picture than a list of components.

    I hope people are more sympathetic than that when your pride and joy wander off.

    SB, where abouts was it stolen from. I am up & down Lewes road every day so might be of use.

    Thanks for the replies all, I’m still really pissed off about it and thankful for any interest.
    It was stolen from the Preston park / London road train station area. I recently moved house and stored it at my lockup temporarily mid move when it dissapeared. There is a church next door and the god botherers occassionally leave the side gate unlocked which means you can with a bit of balls get round the back and into my lockup – my insurance company aren’t interested because of this 😑 My lock up was full of dewalt and makita tools, very good tools to be honest, my wifes golf and my old escort mk1 mexico and nothing else was taken. My guess is someone saw me unload the bike there and was only interested in that; a smackhead would have emptied the lockup! I think the scrote knows what he’s got and is probably going to keep and use it. The local Specialized bike shop – Rayment cycles knows of it and are keeping their eyes peeled in case the idiot takes it in for a service or puncture repair.

    Thanks again, my apologies for being a bit grumpy last night !

    A nice cash reward is offered like I said, the more pain given out to the theif the more it is πŸ˜†

    NEVER give up mate. Had a bike nicked a while back and found it locked up at Brighton station when they used to have boot sales. Got it back when a guy returned to tell the policeman he had got it off a stranger in a pub !?? I go to stanmer / SDW a lot and will keep ’em peeled. GOOD LUCK

    Stick it on Immobilize if not done so already so if Police find it they know who to contact.
