STOLEN: 2010 Mongoose Maurice - Carlton, Melbourne

Postby Derrick Loi » Wed May 12, 2010 10:34 pm

Hey guys,

My bike just got stolen yesterday(May 11). Chained it up at the visitors bike rack at College Square Swanston (opposite Melbourne Uni near the tramstop along Swanston street) at around 5:30 pm and when i returned at 10 pm, my bike was gone! Reported it to the police right after that. My guess is that the thief might have been observing it for quite awhile since i chained my bike there quite often. Anyway hoping that anyone who might have seen it could give me a hand and contact me at 0413942405 or leave a comment.

Here is a link to a picture of a same model bike as mine. Singlespeed, medium size, otherwise it is exactly like the one in the pic, just that i added on a rear black basket. In good condition as i bought it only 2 months ago. Would be grateful if anyone who have spotted or seen it to contact me (0413942405).

Cheers.

Hmmm....

EDIT: this is in no way implying that the seller is selling stolen goods, merely point out that there is a second hand bicycle of the same description on ebay.

Thats Terrible!

Check Ebay!
Bike thieves usually don't want the bike but the cash, so they sell it on Ebay, Bike-Exchange or Bicycling Classifieds.
Set your search preferences to "Your Bike" and then set location as "Carlton, Melbourne" or anywhere around that place.

I live in North Melbourne so i'll keep an eye out for it.
Did it have anything that I could identify it by such as Trip Computer, Light or Sticker?

Hope you find it!
