I've just had both of my bikes stolen from a locked garage in Bristol, UK - side-door crow-barred open. Black Orange P7 with 29-er forks and front and rear rack plus a nearly new Trek Fuel EX9.9. Aggggghhhh! The Orange was my pride and joy, having ridden it for 6 months through North America a few years back. Utterly gutted.

Orange P7 Frame / Serial Number: M8064705
Trek Fuel EX9.9 Frame / Serial Number: WTU 096 CT5185 G

I'm all over eBay, TradeIt, Preloved and GumTree plus Google Alerts and plan to visit pawn and second-hand shops tomorrow with a photo. Have also registered with
