Terrible news Ben, as above, get the pictures up here. I'm sure every one of us will be scouring Gumtree and Ebay in the quest to have them returned.

How the hell did they track them down to your place?

This needs to be posted on every sub forum in my opinion guys.

Someone should sticky it somewhere.......

Here you go Ben, let's cast the net wider for you:

I also created a new post in the 'Lincolnshire, East and South Yorkshire Area Group Rides & News' area for our locals.

Probably opportunist, apparently many bikes are going around here.

Who knows.
Will get some pics up but shed now cleared out. Annoyingly I always take them out when I'm not here, just didn't have the time this time.

Most annoyed about my sons bike as hell be devastated (being 8 in a few days), but its easily replacable.

The alu-o doesn't bother me other than the time spent getting it right and it has Andy b's bars on it I I'm going to have to remember what I had on it.

Altitude is sentimental of course and I'm going to now have to realise how much I spent on it :oops:

Also the joys of getting money for classic collectable bike compared to old bikes.
Anyone dealt with Wheelies? I think they evaluate them for our insurance company.

I had a dream the other night about my bikes getting knicked...ended up getting up at 6am to check the shed! I would hate to loose my Team as its not the money, but the chances of finding another like it...

...really feel for you mate...

Yeah, I've dealt with Wheelies before. Excellent outfit IMHO.
They handle our home insurance claims at work if anyone has bikes stolen.

I also bought a bike from them and service was excellent (mail order)
