Just saw this on Road CC and thought I'd post it JIC.

"Madison Genesis have appealed for help in trying to track down Ian Bibby’s bike, which was stolen in Lancaster yesterday.

The Genesis Volare bike, worth £7,000 and pictured above, is one of only ten in the world and is finished in the team’s distinctive black, orange and light blue colours.

Made from Reynoldsd 953 tubing, it is equipped with a Shimano Dura Ace 9000 11 speed groupset, Dura Ace 35 wheels, and Pro finishing kit.

The bike was taken from outside the Music Room Café on Sun Square at around 3:30 to 3:45pm."

Amazingly, Lancashire Police have reunited Ian Bibby with his bike.

Good news. Presumably this is the same team bike that he came within a sniff of beating Tony Martin, no less, on the other week (see last Thursday's Cycling Weekly for details)?

I would assume so, as there are only just enough race bikes to go round.

Seems like the Police got a tip off and got the thief plus the guy he was about to sell the bike to.
