End of an era
« on: June 22, 2022, 12:07:40 PM »
Sad news folks. The amazing STella was stolen from our driveway overnight.
Police due here shortly to investigate.
This is quite upsetting. Keep an eye out around the traps.
Cheers, Diesel

FOUND! A few streets away. About to go pick her up after forensics have finished their biz.
Thanks to everyone for you concern and help. A lot to be said for happy endings!

I'm glad you'll get her back,  and hope the thieves are caught.    I also hope the CSI's didn't go too nuts with the fingerprint powder as it can be very difficult to remove from old surfaces.

What a bummer!
Here's hoping the scum left it in one piece after they abandoned it...  :X

I'm assuming they ran out of steam after pushing it that far?  :think1

Great news mate. Hope STella is unharmed. You do grow attached to them that's for sure. 15 years ownership for mine coming up in September.

That's a relief!  I agree with Rusty- it would appear they pushed it that far and gave up.  Looks like you need a disk lock or big chain.
Even thieving scum obviously know quality when they see it!
For the modern man who lives in the city, riding a bike might be one of the only ways to escape the humdrum monotony. To take off and ride. To be both at one with nature and one with the bike. To feel masculine. Adam Piggott
