Stolen: Scott FB Road bike; Cultural Centre Brisbane

Postby biker » Thu Jun 11, 2009 3:53 pm

Had my 8 month old black Scott FB Road bike locked to bike racks outside the Museum on tuesday.
Went to get it for the ride home and it was gone. no expectations of seeing it again.

I don't know if anyone else knows those bike racks but they are in a corner that is quite well hidden and i suppose, are therefore a target for thieves.
I won't be locking my bike there again (when i get myself a new one) :(

Sorry to here that man.
I myself have recently just had my 5 month old Giant Talon stolen.
First day i rode it to tafe it gets flogged. Nothing can do bout it though.
It is a shame. It was a really nice bike and had some awesome rides with
it.

would you say that brissie is equally dangerous bike-theft-wise in comparison with other big cities? I lock my bike up with two big cable locks at southbank everyday and fingers crossed that its still there when I go back. Interestingly I had my derailleur stolen when I locked my bike near the southbank bus stop with the front wheel off (presumably the safest option) method... Gotta be careful guys!

I don't know if Brisbane is any worse than any other capital city but I feel like a magnet for bike theft!I had my Giant ATX 870 stolen back in 1998 from Queens Park in the city(D locked) and now my trek from the PAH (cable lock). I'm doing the double with a kryptonite D lock and a basta cable lock now but I still worry!!! I'm really sweating on the RBWH cycle centre to open up.
Does anyone use the one in the city? If so, how is it?
Cheers and commiserations all,

I am very sorry to see that there is this sort of serious mischief occuring in such places as PAH, Southbank, and Museum.

I don't know what the solution is but obviously it is not safe to leave a good bike even adequately locked at some of brisbanes more iconic locations. :shock: :x :cry:

If it makes you feel any better I had 2 bikes stolen from a locked garage - junkies from next door broke into the garage, cut the lock that chained them to the wall, cut the lock that chained them together, broke garage door getting them both out. Police - not interested. Insurance - not interested.
What can you do?
