Bike DescriptionBlack and blue Cube 2018 with internal gears and carbon fiber belt (no chain or external gears). BRIGHT BLUE Cube pedals (not the ones in the photo) Very recognizable as it has large Schwab balloon tyres, security bolts on the front wheel, marked by BikeRegister. Nearly mint condition as normally never leave it outside!
Theft DescriptionLeft outside the cineworld on Hertsmere Road on Saturday September 25th at 5PM. I think there was a teenager sitting on the bench waiting for people to go into the cinema.
Recovery DescriptionUse Bike Register. It works! (Also use better photos than I did) I was contacted via the Bike Register site by a local resident who had bought the bike on Facebook Marketplace and then later discovered through the registry it was stolen (he says he probably put the incorrect frame number in at the time of purchase). I paid a finders fee that covered the 150 pounds he had paid for it. The bad news was the thieves did quite a bit of damage to it and stole or ruined all the accessories. Bike has been repaired and is safety home - new scratches and all. This is the second time thieves have tried to have this bike in Poplar. Not a good place to lock a bike, sadly
