Hi All,

Not been on this site before, but wanted to let you all know that a distinctive retro-looking mens mountain bike that I bought in Beeston on Saturday was stolen that same evening - they cut right through my lock! :(

Details:
- Plain black frame - not sure on make/model, but looked decent quality. Guy in the shop thought it may have been Orange bikes, but not sure about this.
- Distinctive orange Michelin Wild Gripper tyres (one labelled front was on the back / back on the front)
- Bright (tango!) orange gear and brake cable outers
- Deore Excel cantilever brakes

Picture below.

Happy to offer a reward for any info that leads to the return of this bike - I bought it as a gift for my boyfriend and would REALLY like to get it back.

Thanks,
Becky

Thanks, doing all I can! Any tips/advice gratefully received (other than buy an even bigger fatter lock next time, obviously!).

Surely can't be many bikes about with those tyres on these days? It's pretty distinctive. Hoping someone will recognise it.

Ha!

I had to hold my tongue to prevent myself from causing possible offence by commiserating you when I thought you lived in the Leeds Beeston!
