one of the (now defunct!) walton cycles chain shops had a pristine mountain goat deluxe (oval tubes, remeber..) nicked, kinda on par with the newsboy for rarity.

We had a spate of bikes stolen from under our noses at the shop I worked in years back. It's surprising how quickly and easily it happens, one guy on the door, one runs in, grabs and is gone.....

although you would have thought a $6000 bike would have a lock attached somewhere!

Shiiiit didn't realise it was that common, are you in a city centre or something? Either way that sucks, 10 top end bikes must really eat into the profits.
