Looks suspicious to me:
https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/inala/men-s-bicycles/specialized-silas-elite-carbon-mountain-bike-/1163667370

Specialized "Silas" elite (actually a Sirrus). "Carbon" (actually alloy). "Mountain Bike" (actually 700c flat bar). Lights and computer function unknown.

Could have come by it honestly, I guess, but is really ignorant if so.

Thanking you in advance

It's really frustrating when our bikes get stolen right? For me, prevention is better than cure. So it is very important to always keep an eye on our valuable belongings.

This looked 'interesting" to me...
Quick snap by passenger over my shoulder just in case someone recognises the bike.

- 5L petrol jerry can in left hand. Can't see can in photo but can see shadow on ground by front wheel
- Heavily bandaged left foot. No shoe. Presume on pedal for cleats.
- Hed deep section front wheel which was mismatched to rear wheel which had...
- Rear quick release open...what knowledgable rider would ride any bike like that?
- Of course no helmet
- And one extra issue which is legal but shouldn't be. Butt no tatts there.

If legit then the back story will be an interesting one... Just sayin.......


I had to refer to this pic....

I rode home from work earlier this week on my R5 fancy electronic Cervelo. In work boots, tracky dacks, high vis shirt and vest, no helmet or lights, holding onto a plastic bag of goodies. I reckon anyone here would have put me up on show :lol:
