    It'll require going into one of the shops. Done it a few times with items stolen from where I worked.

    I was thinking of fingers ,what were you thinking of ?
    Good Luck I hope you get it back, A guy on the Audax forum recently got his bike back after spotting it on ebay so there is at least some hope.

    Unsupported protocols, mean search engines are not too keen on letting you access it.

    glasgowcyclist Bang on!

    Have you listed it on www.stolen-bikes.co.uk ? They are integrated with www.findthatbike.co.uk which trawls all of the main UK classified adverts for bikes for sale each day and lists them on its site. You can search by make, model and area.

    I did, thanks @glasgowcyclist.
    Finally I found time to report it to the Police, the man that took the report said he never had such a detailed description of a stolen bike, it was all Greek to him!
    I stopped short of giving him the gear ratio :laugh:

    Must be the season, we had 3 bikes stolen from our work bike shed last week on the Wednesday night circa 1830hrs, came back two nights later to try it on again but were spotted and done a runner. All bikes now being kept inside the building for the foreseeable.

    Same in my work, Health and Safety man can go take a hike.
    I'm going to a Belles dinner later ... taking the train :sad:
    Was in the Barrows market earlier, in the off chance I see my bike.
    Did not see it, but saw a shady character doing the rounds, trying to sell a Focus MB to the stall holders :cursing:

    Just seen this Pat; sorry to hear of your misfortune at the hands of thieving toe-rags :cursing:.
    To think that I have left bikes unlocked at the SECC :sad:, but only while I nipped into the toilet, inside the building. Won't be doing that again!
    I will keep an eye open for the Trek if I'm up in the big bad city; you never know.....
    It really pi55es me off that we have to be so careful about where we leave our bikes, even with good locks. It actually puts me off using it as transport at times, if I know I'm going to have to leave it unattended somewhere. It gets a bit restrictive if you can only use a bike for home to home loops.
