Stolen midday today, from locked car:

2008 LOOK 585 origin, medium, black and white with full dura-ace 7800 groupset, d-ace pedals, white san marco zoncolan saddle, trek computer and polar computer, basta lights front and rear, aksyium wheels with 28mm gatorskins. If anyone sees this bike around, could they please let me know. I know there aren't many of these bikes in the country.

Besides the bike, also stolen were rudy project helmet and sunglasses, shimano wr-80 shoes, team clothing.

Sorry to hear of your loss, that would have been a horrible experience.

If you don't mind me asking, have you spoken to the Indooroopilly police ?

Did they break the window of the car to get into it ?
And was the car parked in a conspicuous place ?

I was out somewhere in Bris during the week and in one street i did notice 2 parked cars that had drivers windows smashed, so perhaps there is a bit of this going on.
Hope you get over this setback,
Regards, Steve

Thanks Elantra

Yeah I walked straight to the police station (after phoning 000). There was no broken glass in the car park, there was actually another car parked where I did. One thing I'm glad I did was taking down the serial numbers of my frame and wheels and would suggest everyone do the same.

Just letting you all know I received a call from the police last night and they have my bike, shoes and helmet. Apparently a lady tried to sell it 1hr after it was stolen across town. Happy days Thanks for everyone's suggestions and support

I'm sorry - this requires some clarification.

You mum is a lady (and my mum is too).

Your wife/girlfriend/sister is also presumably a lady.

The festy skank-bucket who stole, and then tried to sell your stolen bicycle for drugs/smokes/VB tallies is not.

Let's just get that straight :D

I say we string her up to the nearest light pole with used bicycle tubes and throw used wet cycling socks at her..
What is it with cycling? 30+ kmh and lycra???!!!

Glad you got your bike back, considering building a safe in my shed to house mine.

Result! Glad you got your bike & gear back :D

Even inside a locked vehicle, it's kind of unwise to leave a quality bike visible to (oxygen) thieves. Doesnt take long at all for those F#%kers to break in.
