    I suggested that to the female police officer who came along when I reported it (she later sent the forensics guy down to fingerprint but no luck).

    I also said that the next time they came they might have to dig the thief out of the opposite wall if I put enough volts through the chains - the look I got was priceless!

    Did they check the local Special Needs School? Seriously anyone who go's to that effort to steal a Trek EX8 is clearly short of a few beans.



    But seriously, to go to that effort surely they must either know you, your bike or be very local to you?

    Going away for a weekend to Liverpool guess what my missus suggests...

    A) A nice 55 litre sac lots of useful pockets and lovely to carry.
    B) 45 litre climbing sac plus a small hand luggage sized duffle.
    C) The biggest 155L Base camp Duffel I own.

    It's a wedding, apparently we need to take every piece of make up she's ever bought, and three pairs of shoe per activity.

    And there was me thinking they were needed for the swag etc - based purely on the assumption that folk only go there "on the rob".

    Isn't that most people from there are "on the rob".

    I think robbers visiting Liverpool would come away with a few bottles of fake tan and some knock off Georgio Armani tracksuits.

    Ha. Ha.

    It was 'only' 5 years old though so well worth the effort... it wouldn't have been so bad except I'd only had one proper ride on it since getting the shock a full service and the fork rebuilt with new steerer/crown/stanchions and a full service on the internals - so basically a new F130 RL with older lowers. Just the $400 down the toilet then and they couldn't have nicked it before I paid out for that...

    There are other b*kes down there worth 100s of $$$ that they could just pick up and walk out with. My wife thinks that they either have a beef with me (but I can't think of anyone) or just got miffed that they couldn't do it before and saw it as a challenge.

    If I catch them down there (we still have the sis-in-law's old MTB and her 2 kids' 24"-wheel MTBs locked down there) they'll be in for a proper challenge...

    I also hope that they didn't realise that I had the brakes on UK style (opposite of the standard here) and, with no seatpost, that they had to brake suddenly going down the steep hill from here and slammed hard OTB.

    I have to comfort myself with the fact that I am really liking the replacement...

    ah, I understood that the stupid robbers lived there & the clever ones just visited to rob them.

    Sorry to hear about the b**e GT - I hope the fcukers get what's coming.

    I keep hearing that a GPS tracker for bikes is a no go but wonder sometimes if a small charge of C4 couldn't be secreted which could be remotely detonated if stolen. I wouldn't get my bike back but would have the satisfaction of knowing the thief would not gain and, hopefully, be caught when he goes to A&E to have a saddle & seat post removed from his arse.

    And I did look into it - you can get a tracker that you set when you lock it and if someone moves your bike without it being deactivated, a warning is sent to your smartphone and the GPS allows you to track the bike.

    The only stupid thing is that it has a little light that I'm sure a thief would see and know what it is...

    Yeah, every 'tracker' I've found is also removable to enable charging/battery changes. We can make toothbrushes with contactless recharging but not something useful :-/

    Er...... I think you might find that toothbrushes are really quite useful*...?

    Unless of course you are a fan of the 'Austin Powers look' when it comes to teeth.

    Christ Stan, she looks about 15 years old!

    Someone at least approaching half my age might be a little more suitable...
