I’ve just had the bikes I love stolen

UPDATE: I’m now offering a £100 reward to anyone whose info directly results in me getting my Brodie Loki back. 

Those of you who know me will know I don’t own a car and I cycle most places. Well that’s come to an abrupt end as both my bicycles were stolen recently from the locked communal store area in my flat in Glasgow. That’s me above chatting to some pigs with the Brodie Loki that was stolen.

The bikes in question are:

Brodie Loki full-suspension mountain bike (photo below and above) RRP £1799

Full Brodie Loki spec. Mine also has Shimano M525 pedals and Crudcatcher mudguards.

Edinburgh Bike Co-op Revolution Courier S1ngle singlespeed (photo below) RRP £250

- Mine also has Zefal slim mudguards, Wellgo Grey Platform pedals and a child seat fitting under the seat.

Given the value and rarity of the Brodie Loki I’m most annoyed about having that one knicked. But I really did love my singlespeed too, I now have no way of turning up to meetings sweaty.

The bike was imported from Canada, I’ve never seen anyone with one before and there’s literally a handful of the them in the UK. If that bike comes up for sale in Scotland I’m 99.999999% sure it’s mine. Mine is also fitted with Shimano M525 SPD pedals and crudcatchers.

If you see a Brodie Loki coming up for sale anywhere, especially eBay, Gumtree Glasgow or the Barras then please let me know: ross(@)thirdsectorlab.co.uk – 07515162686 – @ThirdSectorLab on Twitter.

You can also help spread the word by sharing this post on Twitter, Facebook or emailing your friends – social share buttons at the bottom of this post.

You can also print out a poster for your bike shop, etc.

Please, please help spread the word and maybe I can get my bikes back!

    Where were they stolen from? How were they secured?

  • Ross McCulloch

    Locked communal store cupboard in my close – which itself has a secure entry system. The bikes were both chained together to an anchor using two types of lock. Given that my guess is it wasn’t an opportunistic theft and they knew exactly what they were doing.

    really feel for you – we had a bike stolen from our locked shed (with no evidence of how they got in) a few months ago – again much loved very specifically put together bike. According to the police these bikes are being stolen to order. we’re fairly sure that they took the keys from inside the house while I was asleep upstairs after a nightshift. Seems they must be following people around and then working out how to steal their bikes. It’s bloody digusting. I really hope you get them back.

  • Nadja

    You’ve had lots of shares on Facebook, myself included. This is one thing that stops me from getting an expensive bicycle, as much as I want one.. Hopefully the theif will be caught and you can get those beautiful bikes back. Is there a serial number on it?

    Be sure to check the second hand shops in and around the Baras. A friend of mine found his stolen bke in a shop window a while ago. Good kuck.
