Custom bike stolen - UK

Post by cwah » Sep 13 2019 5:09pm

Hello,


I've unfortunately got my bike stolen. The thieve did that on day light and CCTV has captured his face so I'm hoping that maybe we can someday catch him. And the bike is so unique it can only be sold to DIY enthusiasts... so it makes sense to post it here just in case.


Here's what my bike look like:

You can see the guy stealing it on this CCTV footage. It happened this friday 13th (is it a sign?) at 15:06 in King's cross, London:



Please contact if you find anything



Thank you

Holy shit. I'm sad that the first I've heard of this impressive looking cycle is a theft post.

15s14p ncr18650pf battery split in 2 side of the bike. So it's a 60v 2kwh battery
Phaserunner controller
DD motor (no name) with 16" moped tyre
Frame is a giant revive

Rest of the parts are not expensive and he can't make much money out of it...

Next time perhaps you will remember to use a U-lock. Even the shabbiest of those would not have given it up so easily.

So pointing out an easy, inexpensive measure that would have foiled the theft shown in the video is being such a dick? My impression was that this is a technically oriented forum and not an emotional support group.

Sure. Lock Picking Lawyer probably wouldn't take any longer than that to get into my house.

But never once in more than 30 years of urban cycling and bike shop life have I ever even heard of a bike thief picking a lock. There was that brief episode many years ago when it was discovered some round key locks could be worried open with a pen tube, but even then I never heard of any actual bike thefts that happened that way.

Bike thieves use brute force attacks, or they exploit people's inattention. If they were clever, they'd have a better way to make money.

Nah. You were just being a dick, and you're emotional about it because you got called out.

I wonder why you presumed to know my feelings about it, if any.
