My Kona Dr Dew has just been stolen from outside Moseley Road Baths in Balsall Heath.

A bright almost electric blue colour, with a curved down tube. Bike register sticker. Serial no 1106K0594

Looked like this one, but dirtier.

Black Brooks saddle, black rear rack, metal toe clips, flat handlebars with barbag bracket.

Incredibly squealy brakes, you will hear it coming!

Have reported it via police etc.

Doesn't look like this forum is so much used now but do let me know if you see it. Thank you.

(Bastards - it was my 40th birthday present from my family too.)

Bastards indeed. Good luck in getting it back- I'll watch out for it...

What type of lock did it have? Is there CCTV?

Thanks Hugh and Nick. It had an old but sound Kryptonite D-lock, not top spec but still a d lock. I have actually never known a not-top-of-range bike be stolen when a D lock has been in place, so I can;t help wondering if I did something stupid but I do tend to lock it on autopilot after 15 years of D lock use, so it would be strange. We're hopeful there's CCTV from the swimming baths, and I'm one of the group currently taking it over, so hopefully the staff can share it with me tomorrow.

How old was the DLock - I know Kryptonite did have a problem with some of their locks being defeated by a biro pen lid. This is going back to 2005 though.

Not quite that old..! I remember that story too. I'd be interested to hear if other people have heard of d-locks being defeated for bikes that aren't titanium or whatever. I must say I've always thought with a d-lock and an average-good bike, I'd be OK. My very kind colleague Mark has now sat through all the CCTV footage and it does look as if someone used a tool to remove the d-lock, though the action happens just out of shot. Needless to say this will be passed on to the police.

Thanks

Karen

I hope they get caught and you get your bike back or it's covered on your insurance. Keep an eye on ebay and Gumtree. I've heard of people getting their bike back many months after they were stolen when they appeared on ebay.
