Please make sure you get it thoroughly checked out after the “obvious” missing bits are fixed. A few years back a colleagues car got vandalised, they got it all fixed by the garage, a few days later his brakes were very soft so he took it back and it turned out they had made a small hole the hydraulics somewhere…
This is exactly what I’m worried about. And yes, will get it checked out. It does look like they’ve pulled it out, doesn’t it?
Bit concerning that if they know how to pull out a clutch cable, then they also know how to do other stuff.
Might pop down the shop and get a cover, drag it through the dirt a bit. Shame I can’t even move it from where it is currently parked, cos I’d move it away from there. I hope they don’t come back and lift it.
It’s a fairly big garage - lots of other people who live in the complex use it. I might ask some of the other bike owners if anything has been done to theirs. The bike next to me had its tyres let down.
I wasn’t p!ssed off when I realised something had happened to the bike, but when I spoke to the porter on the property I started getting pissed off because he said “The CCTV hasn’t worked for 3 weeks, and I can’t do anything, but you can report it to the police.”
does anyone else ride the same bike in your block because id say if there willing to take the cluch cable there takeing it for someone or there own bike outher wise you would find it laying around in a corner or a bush out side
Lidl have very cheap bike covers at the moment if you want something to put on it that you won’t mind losing. They’re so cheap I bought two, one to keep in the bike and one for when the other one gets stolen or destroyed ;-). If they’ve run out you’re welcome to one of mine.
Yea, my mechanic says that sometimes people get there with bikes and scooters broken and she asks them about spare parts and they’re like “don’t worry about ordering, I’ll come back on Monday with some”…
The Oxford covers have special holes in them so that they can be locked down to the front and back wheels. Least then you’d know if someone had been at the bike. Plus the covers are pretty heavy duty so they’d pobably have a go at lifting it off and then leave it and move on.
