    put it in a van apparently so when police searched the area they couldnt find it, got a slight lead but nothing solid. rare bike to be sold online (cant find one on ebay) im keeping a look out, thinking of goig into halfords to get another but would mean ive spend 1300 on bikes this month

    I have the Boardman CX, great bikes. Don't understand the mentality at all of the thieving gits, to just take something that someone has worked for, their pride and joy. But guess its easy money for them and if the police happen to catch them, the courts dole out a soft sentence.

    Rant over, you have my sympathy.

    Even if it doesn't turn up at the car boot... a bike like that won't be sold for anything near what it's worth, so someone will buy it most likely to sell on (and hopefully they will do it online), might take a few months for that to happen mind.

    what i thought, if you look on ebay there arnt any for sale at all. ive set it up so i get an email with daily search results, and checking the other sites it could be sold on. determined to get it back. depends whether its been stripped for parts or not so it cant be traced
