4th September Rondinella Track Bike

This bike has been recovered

Thursday night, Homerton outside a chicken shop. Someone nicked Jack's orange Rondinella track 1970s frame.

A few days after this bike was stolen he son of the owner of Bobby's Supperstore http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?f=q&hl...=16&iwloc=addr offered to sell it to the a freind of the owner. The freind arranged to buy the bike, and went to contact the police, they said there was nothing they could do as Jack (the bikes owner) had not reported it stolen. As the police would not help, Jack's freind paid the seller of the bike 50 pounds, to get it back. The guy who had the bike claimed he got it from a tramp for 80 pounds.

8 September Gary Fisher HiFi Pro

My bike was stolen yesterday (8th September 2008) from the rear of my office 68 Wood Lane, London TW7 7EW. It is a 26inch wheeled mountain bike, a Gary Fisher HiFi Pro full suspension in satin white with very distinctive pink Halo Twin Rail tyres. The bike was set up for a 6 foot tall rider with a long seaat post and several spacers on the headset. Black wide riser handlebars and XT componentry throught. Unfortunately I don't have any pictures as the frame was a warranty replacement and only two weeks old. Yes I know - next time I will get pictures taken immediately.

We think the thief was disturbed as he came back for more but unfortunately the security gate to the 'secure' car park is never locked and the CCTV from the rear of the building which is watched by security guards is not working due to building work. The lock and cable on the bike was made short work of with some form of bolt cutter.

28 August Raleigh Ladies Mountian Bike

Hi all fellow victims of crime

My siver Raleigh ladies mountain bike was stolen Thursday 28th August from the bike racks out the front of the Hampstead Theatre, Swiss Cottage. The one day of the year I didn't park in my work grounds (Central School of Speech & Drama) across, due to building works. The theif left my front wheel and lock- how generous! The bike also has a silver panier rack on the back and black bottle holder. It is a very heavy bike which gave me back and knee ache. Good luck to whom ever has it!!!

12 July 2007 Trek 6000

Hi London cyclists,

My bike was stolen on Saturday 12th July 2008 in Holborn, Drake Street/Procter Street. It happened between 4 and 5 p.m.. It is a 2007 Trek 6000 Mountain Bike in silver, frame size 19,5 inch. The tyres I had changed to the thin Specialized Fat Boy and I had two black bottle holders fixed to the frame. The strange thing about it is that just when I locked it a guy (aged 15-20) was asking me how to get to Holborn Station. He was dressed in a light blue track suit, trainers (all Nike) and a baseball cap. He had a false diamond stud in his ear and looked as if he was from London, as if he knew where Holborn Station is. Spoiling his trendy look, he was carrying a small rucksack.

Having already excepted not to see my bike again I saw a guy cycling it today (Monday 28th July 2008) in Nelson Terrace/City Road, Islington. Unfortunately I wasn't able to get hold of it. I think the two persons, stealing it and cycling it could be the same person.

Although I dont have a lot of hope to see it ever again, I write this to let you know how things can come.
Cycling in London is a great thing but we have to be very watchful at any time to oppose thieves.

If you have any information on my bike email stolenbikelondon@gmail.com. If you find it, there is a reward of £50.

Best regards, Michael

7 July Carrera Subway 2

Hi all,

My bike was stolen on Monday 7th July 2008 between 09:00 and 12:30 from the bike racks in the middle of Holborn near to Holborn Circus (EC1N 2HS). This was the first day that I had ever ridden to work and I was really looking forward to keeping it up… how demoralising. The metal cable lock had been cut and left hanging on the rack.

The bike is a Carrera Subway 2 men’s mountain bike with 15 gears and disc brakes. It is a dark metallic grey with lighter grey logos on the frame and forks. There was also a small led light secured to the handle bars. A photo of the same type of bike (copied from an advertisement) is attached. Unfortunately I am new to London and was admittedly a bit na├»ve about the severity of bike thefts so I don’t have a record of the frame number. That won’t happen again.

Any information would be much appreciated.

Thanks very much,
Mark

12 July 2005 Gray Fisher Cake DLX

Hi,

My bike was stolen a little after 2 pm on Saturday the 12, of July. It is a 2005 Gary Fisher Cake DLX 1. It was stolen from the Tesco on Circus Road in St. John's Wood. It has a blue and black paint job and had carbon seat post and handle bars. The frame is extremely large 21 inch, so unless some one is well over 6 feet tall, the rider will look very odd on it. Also this bike has extremely unusual front suspension, a Maverick front fork, which is similar to a dirt bikes front shocks. There was a Specialized tire on the rear wheel, which was quite noticable.

The bike is in mint shape and quite a rare bike, I was just about to leave to go to France to ride in the alps for a few day on it. As you can imagine, I'm gutted, I built the bike from the frame up, and this bike means a lot to me. If anyone has any information on this, please contact the police (I have reported it stolen) or this blog.

Many Thanks,

Patrick

30 June Specialised Globe

Hiya,

My bike was stolen today between 16:40 and 17:30 from outside the library in Kentish Town. Broad daylight (naturally), and beautiful sunny day too. It's a Globe Specialised hybrid - only 1.5months old. Ha ha ha.

I'm wondering how many people have managed to retrieve their bikes using your website? And much as I previously disagreed wholeheartedly with the idea of purchasing stolen goods, how on earth can I afford a new one? No insurance...

20 June Specialized Langster

Hi, I got my bike nicked, heres a description and the thread from the single speed website I'm on under the name vedubkid:

My lovely Specialized Langster, the rust brown 07 model, was nicked from outside the Hope and Anchor last night, 14/06, between 22:30 and 23:45 from a lamp post between the Hope, and Budgens supermarket on Upper St. It had a yellow Time Again sticker on the top tube, and a US Bombs sticker on the down tube, probably bin removed by now, and a Crud Catcher mudguard. I have tried reporting this theft on the Met website but the feckin' site keeps crashing.

I didn't have a photo unfortunately. I've put a similar post on Gumtree, and bin down Brick Lane this morning but so far nada.

If you could put thi on the blog I'd appreciate it. Charlie

My bike was stolen from outside Liverpool Street Station between 3rd and 4th June. It was locked to one of the 4 bike stands just outside the main building, beside the outdoor seating area of Hamilton's Bar, and beneath 3 CCTV cameras. I'd been locking it there for 8 months. Blue-green Raleigh Lady's mountain bike, fairly old and battered looking. New rear tyre. Black carrier. attachments for lights at the front. One D lock through wheel and bicycle stand. One (new £40!) armour lock through wheel, frame, and bike stand. Strangely they also took the (cut/ broken) locks with them!

1 June Dawes Giro 500

Dear Stolen Bike London,

My bike was stolen on Sunday 1 June 2008 at 9:30am from outside Browns in Angel Islington.

It was a Dawes Giro 500 ladies racing bike, blue and white with bright blue handlebars and it was my pride and joy!!:(

Sadly, I actually saw the whole thing happen but was too far away to do anything. The thief casually walked up to the bike racks and I thought he was unlocking the bike next to mine. By the time I realised it was my bike he was already off down Essex Road.

I would recommend to anyone, if you love your bike, then fork out the extra £s for a decent lock that takes them at least a minute to get through!! I didn't and have paid the price.

27th May Trek 1000, Cannondale R500

Hi,

I was having lunch at Wild Honey W1S 2FB on St George's Street in Mayfair when my bike was stolen. It was parked outside no 30 St George's Street at 1pm and I came out to check on it at around 2pm but when I left at 4pm it was gone and the lock was left behind.

It is a black Trek 1000 with sliver wheels, not the standard black, with brckets front and back for lights (but no lights on them) and a computer with a broken clip (so can't just be removed) on the front handle bars and a pump and bolttle holder (without pump and bottle)...I assume if it is being sold this would have been removed.

I have tried the buildign and the council just in case and will go to Bricklane police station to see if it has been seized from those shops.

Any help or advice would be great, thanks.

If you have any information about this bike please email stolenbikelondon@gmail.com

I had been trying to find some one to take over the site for some time, as I had become busy, but had no takers. Due to this the site was not updated over the summer, I apologize for that, and will be back updating it now.

Today I will post the backlog of bikes left from last time I updated.
