    Either very bold or very stupid......or very good at riding with no hands on bars....literally.
    Likely the Omanis will take this personally.

    Have the Omanis annexed France then?

  • Were the thieves doped? I heard they broke the record for bolt cutting that type of lock.

    Clearly the threat of having their hands cut off acted as a deterrent for thieves in Oman.

    That's why they struck in France.

    Where the penalties are gentler

    Unlike Oman

    Where Haut Var isn't

    Why all the Oman references? The theft was in France.

    Homoeopathic break-ins? "It's terrible, Sarge - they broke in, and did nothing but leave two buckets of water behind."

    According to papers nearly £220,000 worth. You'd've thought they'd 've had good security at least up to bronze standard.

    That's what I've got and my £100 bike's never been stolen. :wink:

    They broke the bolt cutting times of known doping bolt cutters so must have been doped.

    When someone leaves a roll of new bar tape on your bike you know it's bad ...
