Very sorry to hear that - glad someone got arrested.

My wife's bike was stolen from an underground carpark in our apartment block a couple of weeks ago. Looks like they got in and had a bit of a free for all in there - loads of locks cut around the place now.

She hasn't had any help from the management company (they have camera's dotted around the place) and she has had no joy in getting in contact with the garda dealing with the case.

Hope you have better luck.

Hi All,
Friday the 13th stuck last night.
I had my 3 bikes stolen off my 1st floor balcony.
Neighbour seen it at 2.30am, rang Garda, got one bike back and arrested one guy. Going to press charges. Found bolt cutter down below at the scene.
Will know more when the arresting garda is back on duty tonight.

Missing is a Focus Superbud double suspension MB. Predometly red with some black and white forks.

Also a Blue Claude Butler racer. Probably worth feck all but the one of the 2 missing I can't replace. Alot of fond memories on this beauty, my first +200km, first tri, College commuting. Devo over her. RIP Old Bluey

No house insurance as renting and never got around to getting contents only. Yes I know I am an idiot.

Any info or sightings I would be very grateful.

Things to learn for all, The bigger the better on the lock, Scum can climb and if your renting make sure your contents are covered under your lanlords insurance or get your own.

Not sure at all. They would give me my bike in the station this morning so I couldn't tell if there was much damage

Just to highlight, your landlord's insurance cannot cover your possessions unless your landlord is also a member of your immediate family. As a renter, if you do not have contents insurance, then your possessions are not insured.

Also, if you are housesharing each renter should have their own policy as nobody else's policy can cover your stuff.

For bikes specifically, ring your insurer to make sure that they're covered if you're leaving them outside on a balcony.

Sorry to hear about your bikes. Hopefully as they've caught them so quickly, they may be able to find out where the other two went. Whereabouts did this happen?

Ah thats a pity to hear, The garda was very helpful this morning I must say. Hopefully should find out more this evening.


Seamus,
It happened in the Phoenix Park Racecourse.

They had a few bikes up in Blanch garda station that they have recovered to anyone else that has had one stolen recently.

Got another bike back!!! The Claude Butler. Still down my MB which is a stinker but could have been way worse.

The lads were up in Court last Friday morning. There was a stuggle and one bite one of the arresting Garda.

So please keep a look out for the MB if you would. Its fairly distinctive and I have only seen one other about. They also took the saddle bag, cross bar bag and pump off my main racer which was is strange.

Stolen Bicycle: Fuji Sagres (Dublin 15)

I had my bicycle stolen from Castleknock Train station today (16/05/2011).

It was locked up at the bicycle stand to the back of the station (before 8am and gone when I got back from work after 6pm).

Make: Fuji
Model: Sagres.
(Example picture attached).

Distinguishing features:
Handlebar extensions (black).
Mudguards: Front & Rear.
Wired for speedometer (sensor and magnet still attached).
Front light dock (centre of stem)
Lock (Example picture attached).

Just in case anyone comes across the bike or is offered to buy, please keep an eye out! I've been searching adverts.ie, gumtree, donedeal and buy and sell.

Thanks.

Giant SCR 4 (2008) taken from locked shed. I'd only just put on new casette (11-34 SRAM), chain , chainrings, tyres (vittorio rubino) , brake blocks & rear derailleur.

It's the standard grey/black/white one you see around

http://www.giant-bicycles.com/en-GB/...ad/1399/29642/

Distingushing features. Ritchie's sticker, red race sticker on top tube, altura tool bag, shimano pedals instead of the original.

Any spots it, I'd be grateful for a PM

I am renting. I lock my bike in a shed at the back of the apartment block. The shed has a 4 digit code and the bike is locked with the New York lock.

What options for insuring the bike are available? Can I get contents only insurance? Will that cover the shed?

Sorry to hear all these bad stories guys. I'll keep an eye out for them. My brother gets the train to work every day from D15 and afew weeks ago he spotted two lads checking out locked bikes at each station. The lads were sitting in front of him on the train. Anyway they had a bolt cutters hidden under their seat so at his stop he reached down and slipped the cutters into his newspaper and walked away. At least they couldn't rob any more bikes that day!

We did have another thread on it a while ago, but it's a good idea to link it here also. I've updated the OP as well.

Thanks

SCOTT SUB20 + Diamond Back NEX Hybrid

Hello Guys,
this night sombody (probably more a goup of people) climbed over our 3m (!!!) high backyard-wall at North Strand/North Strand Road took our 2 Bikes and left again over the wall. The Scott bike was put together by myself after pretty much the same Bike has been stolen from the backyard of my old apartment (just 6 months ago).
If you spot one of the two biles please let me know, or directly call the garda. I would pay 300€ reward for the Scott Sub20. If you have any other informations please let me know.

SCOTT SUB20




I´m sorry I only have these two pretty bad pictures of the bike.

Details about the bike:

It´s Singlespeed, quite an eyecatcher is the red-wheeled tensioner.
Fork: Rock Shoxx Reba SL
Wheelset: Fun Works N-Light
Cranks: Alfine
Tires: Slicks - Schwalbe Kojak
Frontbreak: Avid Juicy 3
No rear break.

---
Diamond Back NEX Hybrid

Details about the bike:
The color is more greenish, I couldn´t get the tones right on this shot.
