last year i found an alloy frame. someone had cut 4" of the seat stay out with bolt croppers!! so it doesn't matter how good your lock is, because your expensive thin wall frame is easy to cut through!! :shock:
i can only presume it was built up with decient kit!

pages from porno mags :shock:

I used to find them scattered all around the trail through my local woods, never did find out who put them there, the Porno Fairy I assume? :?


I want those back when you are finished with them.

Pumps, lights, mobile phones ( I've been told I'm quite observant ). People pay so much attention to their bike set up, tyre pressure and so on, then hardly notice they've left a pocket unzipped or velcro undone.

Did that the other day in swinley. Stopped to take off my broken mudguard and when I got home found I'd left both compartment zippers open. Didn't lose a thing #fistpump.

Rode by it for a few days before picking it up when passing in the car! Had obviously been there for months by the state of it but scrubbed up quite nicely.
