Friend of the blog and top Brownhillian cyclist chap Lee Slater has contacted me with this tale of abject woe from his friends in Rugeley.
It seems two mountain bikes were stolen from a house in Rugeley in the early hours of last Thursday, 16th August 2012.
These are high end, specific bikes which will be quite distinctive. I advise the owners and Lee to keep an eye on eBay and Gumtree as nicked bikes often reappear there.
Having your bike nicked is a horrible thing indeed. The arseholes that do this are beyond comprehension.
Here’s the details of my mates and his wife’s bikes stolen from his garage at home in Rugeley:
My bike is – Giant Trance X4 2011, it’s white and 27 speed.
It’s got wide silver nukeproof warhead riser bars, yellow nukeproof grips, white nukeproof pedals with black pins. The tyres are Maxxis minion DHF on front and back on the front tyre left side there is a purple and yellow ink stain. The saddle is standard on the stem it’s got my GoPro camera mount and lights which are held on with a rubber band the lights are usb charged not battery made by Moon.
Wife’s bike is a GT Outpost, XS frame, mechanical disk brakes front and back. 24 speed, serial number SNMNG09H50549. The bike is red and white but can’t tell you any more about that only got it Wednesday night
