- Reward: Handsome reward for the successful recovery of the bike
- Stolen On...: Mid to late November 2011, weekday between 9 am and 10 am
- Stolen From...: Outside Wimbledon Library, Compton Road
- Frame Number: G07G0663
- Colour: Red, Black and Grey
Taken from the railings outside Wimbledon Library, it was advertised 2 – 3 weeks later on Gumtree by Ben (using the mobile phone number 07884001200). He claimed he bought it from Wimbledon Stadium car boot sale in good faith but had he checked the frame number with the local police station then he would have found out that is was stolen…so why was the bike stripped of the carrier, lights and bottle cage? yet the unique combination of tyres and unbranded wellgo style SPD pedals gave away it’s identity in the picture he posted of it. He even described it as an SCR 2 despite the model written clearly on the frame, and his authoring skills are not that of an illiterate. He continues to sell bikes, some clearly stolen, and others that perhaps are not.
Be warned when dealing with this guy…
