I know this bike can't be compared with an Ernie Clements design classic, and other such £20 car boot bargains I tend to post on here
. But some people love them, so it's must be just as heart braking to have them stolen. And when it happens on your birthday when you're out having a meal with the Misses, it must be even more upsetting. This happened to an old friend on Monday in Bristol City Centre, when his red Trek 2.3 was stolen from out side the pub.
Being a clever kinda guy he visited the Pub opposite and asked if the incident was recorded on their camera. He was lucky, and although the quality isn't that great I'm sure any one who knows the Gent could easily I.D him.
Anyway he's taken the footage to the police hoping the chap in question might be familiar to them, and posted the video on youtube for all to see...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ThmqXNa_rK8
What I found really shocking in this video was how 'professional' this Gentleman's technique was, I'm sure he's done this many times before, and I can't see many bikes being safe from him. So, look and learn, lock your bike up somewhere safe 'cus I'm sure he's looking for his next bike, or maybe even his next but one bike. He's a fast worker!
