    GUTTED....we've had the second bike stolen in six months here in Leeds. NOT, I hasten to say, our lovely tourers (phew), but my little Dawes Discovery which I'd lent to a friend has been pinched.

    If you're Leeds based, knowledge is power...take a lock or two.

    Off to buy a stronger lock for Liesl tomorrow. Utterly gutted at the loss of the Dawes. We had some good times together.

    Just realised I've made a typo too. Doubley gutted now.

    I can't decide if I'm more mortified about the spelling mistake or the loss of George!! George, though, I think! I believe he was unlocked in a secure car park - which is exactly how we lost the Tank over Christmas so I can't blame my friend at all. We'll learn though!!

    Thanks for the lock recommendations. Cycling Plus recommended the Abus Granit X. Any thoughts?

    Having anything stolen is always upsetting in my opinion, I always wish someone had seen the scum that took it but that rarely happens!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
     
  11. Oh poo. On the plus side, you could get a new bike...

    That occurred to me too....Pashley? Or a second hand Thorn from ebay?

    Doesn't take me long to get over things, does it?? Am shocked at my own heartlessness.
