    Stolen: Nicolai Helius FR...and Charge Blender

    As the tittle stolen from my car while I was at work after picking them both up from the bikeshop.

    Rest in piece.

    However if someone happens to see them out and about please call the police

    The Nicolai is here... its the only one of that colour combination in the country so should be fairly obvious.



    The blender was painted kawasaki green, it had red hope m4s, chris king headset, pro 2 on mavic 729s, full xtr drive train.

    Oh from those who don't know me was stolen in bristol.

    Oh mate, I really feel for you. Such a magnificent bike. It seems strange that this is the second FR to be stolen in the South of England in the last month. I will certainly keep my eyes peeled but seriously, I really feel for you buddy. This fockers really need some harsh punishment! If it were my ride, I would be judge, jury and the executioner.
    Hope it turns up soon dude.....good luck....

    [SIZE=2]These thieves must be ****ing idiots, why oh why would you steal something so unique, anyone who reads this will instantly recognise the bike if they see it unlike if it was something like a top-end Specialized which is more common…

    Anyway it’s real sad when you have something like that go, I’ll keep an eye out for it and I hope you get it back.

    Maybe worth a little walk around Still Woods or Ashton Court this morning ,the retards who took them are stupid enough to try them out? I'll keep an eye out here and at Cwmcarn,like the thread said thats 2 Nicolais gone from BS and someone somewhere must see them.Try posting on mtb-wales,southerndh & wentwood downhill also.that'll cover the region.I'll ask Neil up at Redhill to look out for the Blender.

    Cheers guys, will keep my eyes peeles on ebay. My LBS who sells nicolai got ram raided and their bikes turned up on ebay in pieces, tho the frames were never recovered.

    Cheers for those other more local forums i shall post on them and spread the word. Also in the process of sending out a quick email to every bike shop i can find the address for.

    Te insurance isnt going to pay out either so I have a few months before I can afford to buy another. So look out for the ''what new bike thread?''
