Stolen Specialized Globe Vienna - London, Old Street


New Member
Hi all, never thought that my first post on CC would be to report that the "usual good fellas :evil:" have stolen on the night between the 26th and 27th of April 2010 my bicycle:

Make: Specialized
Model:Globe Vienna
Colour: grey
Frame: 57cm
Frame number: WUD80835490D
Saddle: Specialized Recreational Saddle
Tires: Front and rear tires and rims are different as I changed the rear ones
Area: Old Street
City: London

I had an ordinary Kryptonite U-lock.

Obviously it was reported to the police and there were almost 4 CCTV keeping an eye on my bike. I'm checking Gumtree and eBay constantly. Any other suggestions?

There appears to be number of 'suspect' London sellers on gumtree and ebay so it's worth keeping an eye open. Otherwise I wouldn't hold your breath! A bike is stolen every 71 seconds in the UK and almost none are ever recovered.
You don't need to check ebay constantly - it can do it for you. Set up an alert for your bike and tell ebay to email you as soon as a new listing matches. I think some theives must steal a whole lot, wait until the trail cools, and then post them all very very quickly.
