red brompton - reading


New Member

I'm posting more to console myself rather than in hope of seeing it again. I had my two week old brompton stolen from my garage yesterday afternoon. It was an opportunist who walked up my drive and helped himself/herself while I was only a few feet away in the house. By the time I had got my shoes on, they were gone.

The bike is a brand new brompton S2l in red. Obviously there are a few of these around and I haven't had it long enough to give it any distinguishing marks...the only addition is a saddle bag with a few tools in it. I have the serial number if anyone sees something.

Anyway, the moral of the story is that there are desperate people out there that will take a big risks to take your bike.

Sorry to hear :-( Usually a benefit of Bromptons is they are pretty safe from theft as you don't ever need to leave them outside, but as you say, if someone is dumb enough to take a stupid risk to steal something ...

Check out Gumtree and Craigslist - lots of stolen bikes show up there.
