    Is that a clamp on the top bar, (Carbon bike) Don't like the look of that.
  3. Not only criminal but stupid too. Reminds me of them crims that were sawing through live cables with a hacksaw on the railway.

    What a scumbag. I always use a lightweight cable lock when mine is on the roof rack. If I was leaving it longer I'd use something sturdier.

    "The woman driving the car believes the attempted theft was deliberate..."

    As opposed to those accidental thefts happen all the time. Whoops officer, I've accidentally robbed an old lady. Again.

    And they believe it was planned. No evidence, that's what they believe. Not an opportunist light fingered scum bag like most of them, someone who deliberately stakes out road junctions hoping to steal a bike from a car. The standard of Daily Mail journalism makes even The Cardigan suddenly seem a decent read.

    I like the way the person in the car behind does nothing.

    I guess she meant premeditated as opposed to opportunist.

    If I was watching that I would have driven over his bike several times so he came back to a nice flat pack bike

    I hope that the driver behind ran over his bike to hinder his escape, but on second thoughts that was probably someone else's pride and joy too.

    I think she's bananas for the reasons stated.
