    Shoot!! (or similar) Really sorry to hear that. Have you posted on stolen bikes? Stick a thread on here too. The more people you tell there is a slightly better chance someone will see it or hear something. All the usual stuff, watch Ebay, Gumtree and everything else.
    Find it, catch the little feckers and burn them at the stake. I hope the wheel failed and they have a broken spoke up their aris.
    There is hope. My bike got nicked and I got it back 6 weeks later. Found it on Ebay.
