    it was sold on the notorious gumtree website, famous for easing the sale of stolen goods and assuring the anonimity of the thieves

    same mobile number was on several gumtree adverts, with different names, and the same nonsense story about where they bougjht the bikes, nice one gumtree

    other stolen bikes from the worthless piece of scum advertised on gumtree...

    wilier triestina team lampre
    scott sub 10 (two!)
    condor fratello
    couple of bromptons

    at least i have a pic of my bike from the advert!

    btw chapeau to toks and his http://bikeshd.co.uk/ site, it's how i found the gumtree ad

    i'd set up a search on gumtree to email me all bike ads, surprise it didn't send me the ad for my bike! so apparently another way gumtree supports the thieves
