Bike DescriptionRibble Carbon frame (Small 48cm) with Shimano Ultegra Di2, double-sided mountain bike pedals, lights, Mavic Ksyrium rear wheel, bontager front.
Theft DescriptionWas stolen from outside our flat in Roehampton - was locked, very sad :(
Recovery DescriptionBig shout out to Sam, who saw my bike listed on Facebook Marketplace and thought that it was too good to be true. He did a quick search and found the bike on here. I contacted the person who was selling the bike and offered a bit more money (I know you've had interest in the bike, I want to lock it in) as a way of making sure it didn't get sold to someone else. I contacted Police and after escalating the issue of requiring support to recover the bike through a meeting, I ended up getting some plainclothes police to observe my meetup and seek to arrest the individual but he legged it and got away. I was able to recover the bike without any loss. Thanks to Sam and the hosts of this site, and to Met Pol for their support in getting my bike back!
