Awesome end to the story, but I gotta ask 2 things... Are you commuting on this beast? Was it locked up when stolen?

This is my only bike, so yes, I use it to ride places every day, but I live in the inner city so I'm not covering large distances on it. It was locked, but it was a cable lock, not a U lock. I never leave it for more than 15 minutes, but clearly it doesn't take that long to steal it. Nevertheless I've learnt my lesson and I'll definitely be getting a better lock after I get my bike back from the police.

yeah it's great to know you got it back! i was just wondering about the lock mainly cause i have ridden to the shops without a lock and was so paranoid about it. i took mine inside the shopping centre where i knew the cameras were and put it right in front of coles. mind you it was my old hardtail, so wouldn't be without a bike if it was lost unlike you. what happened to the bloke who stole it?

Awesome outcome!!

I had a roadie stolen twice and recovered twice, Cops spotted well known characters riding a roadie they prob shouldn't be riding.

Save yourself the pain and buy yourself a an old clunker to get around!


Really hoping for much of the same as my bike tends to stand out. flyers going up tomorrow so hopefully someone sees something
