Can you help find stolen bicycles?

Bournemouth Echo: Can you help find stolen bicycles? Can you help find stolen bicycles?

Thieves stole two bikes worth £12,000 from a garage in Bournemouth.

One of the bikes is a Cannondale road bike valued at £5000 – a 2011 Supersix Ultegra hi-mod. It is white with black writing, has a 2011 standard specification and is made of carbon fibre.

The second bike is a Cannondale mountain bike valued at £7000 – a 2011 flash carbon team. This is a rare model and one of only 10 in the UK.

It is made of carbon fibre and black, green and white in colour. It is unusual in that it only has one front fork. It also has a faulty front brake.

Police Constable Sarah Hodgson, of Bournemouth police, said: “I am now in the position to release pictures of the two bicycles that were taken.

“I am appealing for anyone who witnessed this incident, and anyone with any information about the person responsible, to contact me as soon as possible.

“I would also like to hear from anyone who has been offered bikes of these descriptions in unusual circumstances or at an unusually low price.”

The incident, at a property along College Road, happened between 11pm on Thursday 22 November 2012 and 6.45am on Friday 23 November 2012.

Would the echo run a story for my £250 bike that was stolen? Probably not so why are they running one for these expensive bikes?

Err because they are unique and v expensive and the owner was able to provide a photograph of them. Did u report your bike stolen ? Did u have a photo? If u did ask the police, they might just run a story for you.

They are not 'unique' - just top of the range bikes. My bike was reported stolen and a photo i took provided to the police - the ones above are simply taken from the web. And yes I chased the police for updates to no avail.

They are stock photos, unless the bikes were kept in a white garage, with excellent lighting and the only security was not having any pedals!!!!
