    Hi all!
    Beware of leaving your bikes at the Secc (Glasgow) bike racks, 5 bikes have been stolen from there in the last few weeks, including mine :sad:
    Thieves have been operating at busy evening time and also during the day.
    One one occasion they have abandoned two bikes for better ones, I took a picture, if they are yours talk to the SECC security.
    One is a large frame Btween, the other a small frame Pinnacle.
    If you see a matt black trek front disk brake, rear V-brake, with rack, panniers, yellow rain cover, black mudguards with a Glasgow Cycling Festival sticker on the back it's mine!!!
    Thank you, here is the picture of the abandoned bikes, SECC security put a chain round them.

    Sorry your bike was stolen :sad:
    Maybe check local Gumtree ads, just in case, or if you're on Facebook post a wee pic?
    Hope you get bike back, undamaged.

    That sucks! Hope you get your bike back Pat. Also, in the spirit of Christmas, I hope the thieving scumbags fall off one of these stolen bikes and break all their limbs :angry:

    Thieving scum, hope the feds manage to find it, I'll bet they have a good idea of who it is by which little scrote has just been released.

    This might cheer you up. Thieves in the centre of London in the middle of the day try to steal an expensive motorbike, but were thwarted.

    Does the SECC have CTV in the vicinity?

    Thanks @Mrs M, I've alerted everyone I could think of, plus I've set alerts on gumtree and ebay.
    I wouldn't have thought that kind of bike is desirable, quite hefty, a typical commuting workhorse. Mind, the components are quite expensive, but it's a hybrid flat bar, not a carbon racer. Maybe they'll strip it for the parts :sad:

    Well, they build the bike park about 3 years ago, supposed to be secured, because they were fed up of all the bikes hidden inside, a fire hazard and so on.
    We know now that security cannot see a thing the way the camera is placed :cursing:

    I feel your pain. Having a bike nicked really hurts.



    IMHO punishment should suit the crime. I would use the thieving scums lock cutting tools to remove various bits of their anatomy.

    I got castigated on here a few years back for suggesting a return of the 'Stocks' for the scum, I still support that view but 'hacking bits off them'.................

    Have you been into cash convertor. Local one has a way of alerting the other shops to stolen goods. So long as you can prove they were yours. I'm not disputing what's been said, it's a requirement on their part.

    Well, we don't know the sex of the perpetrators, maybe there are no bits to hack off :whistle:
    Anyhow, there are now 2 abandoned bikes, left for stealing better ones.
    I feel for the poor owners :sad:
