    So if your bike if worth £600+ you'll get the full £350 if it's stolen - usually!

    Some house insurance does cover the full value of any bike.

    Otherwise buy a bike specific policy. I did that but it cost me £80 for 1 year to insure 2 bikes with total value of £1500

    I forgot to say: bike specific policies are most useful and straight forward if the bike is new(ish) and not modified much - ie. an off the shelf bike. Some insurers will insure custom built bikes but you'll pay through the nose, and will require a receipt for every component.

    that's not my experience

    and yes, there are several to choose from. Evans cycles even has one on their website now. Instant quotes too!

    Try a different insurance company - I use CIS - they have £1000 bike cover, plus you can specify certain items/bikes of higher value, and insure on an extension.

    Lots of other companies out there too....
