Bike Description

Reddish orange, long tail steel cargo bike with rear child carrying setup, footboards, waist height rail and black material. 8 speed hub gear, roller brakes, front and rear dynamo lights. Very unique bike, possibly only 1-10 of this model in the country as it's hand made. Fairly new and had searched in vain for the frame number :(

Theft Description

Stolen from bike racks at Bedminster train station between 10.30am and 5pm. U lock mangled, prob bolt cutters. Mine and my daughter's helmets left behind.

Recovery Description

I used a couple methods but the one that got really quick feedback was a public Facebook post with pics, shared on various groups. 3 different people confirmed sightings, then by a stroke of luck the bike had been ditched at a boatyard that gets locked up at night, in good time for me to ring them in the morning. Thieves are described as teenagers, so that plus the uniqueness of the bike probably led to the good fortune of it being dumped in a public place.
