Bikes stolen from Chester. Nicolai, Santa Cruz and Kona

edited June 2010 in MTB stolen
Hi sorry if this isn't the correct place to post but thought it was a good start.

If any of you are out biking could you keep a look out for some bikes that have been stolen. They were stolen last night from a shed in Chester. One is a Nicolai Helius in custom orange and white colours then there's a Santa Cruz Nomad in all white colours and then a Kona Dawg delux in dark blue colour. I've got a detailed specs and piccies if anyone can think of any way of improving the chances of getting them back!

Happy biking

    Better off posting here.

    This will get locked I imagine.

    Unlucky though, sound like some really nice bikes, hope you get them back. Watch ebay and gumtree, and post here too

    Our Mods are not unreasonable, they'll move it to the right section.

    Best of luck in retrieving the bikes

    Will keep an eye out - my mate got his bike stolen from Saughall & thankfully recovered in Blacon via good police work

    Grrr - sorry to hear that mate, just had mine lifted at home visiting parents; you know, back where you feel 'safe' and all!!

    Anyway, will keep an eye out in Delamere as good chance they could turn up there, either at the 4X track / area or the downhill stuff just off the Hatchmere road.

    Might also be worth putting up a STOLEN notice up at Lllandegla on the notice board, might be worth it if you're in the area.

    Fingers crossed pal, certainly don't see many of those Nicolai's...

    Mmm. I saw three rough scallies pushing MTB's across Christleton Road today at 7:25pm by the shops - near Bonhams. The roughest of them had what I took to be a white Trek Remedy but I guess it could have been a Nomad. It didn't look right to me which was why I noticed. Dunno what the other bikes were. Might be worth you having a drive around Boughton & Vicars X??
    Hope u get them back.
