Cycling in and around Birmingham England
Long shot obviously and have listed this on all the usual sites but thought I would stick this here incase anyway see's it in the city.
Was stolen from Moseley on Friday 11th May, two people on moped with bolt croppers and tools to smash off my d-lock (don't buy an Oxford D-lcok it seems)
Also, always check your insurance documents, turns out my home insurers renewed our home policy but removed the bikes from the policy and I didn't check properly to realise this!
So sorry to hear this, Andy! How very upsetting - specially about the insurance. I'll keep an eye open around Moseley.Am sure I will tell you stuff you already know but keep an eye on ebay and gumtree just in case.
In terms of insurance mine was stolen from outside the baths a few weeks back and I cannot fault Co-op's claims dept in sorting it promptly, if you are thinking of changing provider. We had to specify the bikes on the policy I think but no extra cost and only £50 no claims. Sorry this sounds like an ad but I was gobsmacked by how easy it was to claim.
I';m about to see if I can start a thread in general discussions about how to thief-proof your bike...
