  • What to do when you suspect a bicycle is stolen...

    Its not a motorbike but i guess similar steps would be applied to a bicycle, so here it is:

    Today on my ride home i saw a guy with tattoos and wearing a bintang bali singlet and carrying a bicycle on his shoulder.

    The bike was a MTB and had a lock on the front wheel.

    Guy had no helmet with him, clearly not a cyclist.

    When i stopped at the lights he walked past so i just said:
    ME: lost a key or something
    Him: yeah
    Him: i just live around the corner

    Sure. Well wasnt really sure what else i can possibly do as far as the law goes.

    Anyone been in a similar situation?

    This happened in Perth.

    neighborhood watch and it goes in their database.

    ive done this before when ive seen a dude walking down the street with a computer over his shoulder. give the cops a description of the potential offender they can use. the local patrols can then look out for them and at least have a chance of picking the person up.

    that kind of information probably doesnt mean much by itself, but if low end property thieves who are just looking for their next fix go and rip off a heap of places in a pattern and your description is in the right area at the right time and someone is missing a bike then the cops have something to go on.

        Thanks for the suggestion gozer.

        out_in_front - i would rather choose techniques that do not put myself at risk of being chased and probably bitten up as a result

          Get your lynching rope, some pitchforks and a community of PSBers.


          Then set up camp on his lawn.
          “Crashing is shit for you, shit for the bike, shit for the mechanics and shit for the set-up,” Checa told me a while back. “It’s a signal that you are heading in the wrong direction. You want to win but crashing is the opposite. It’s like being in France when you want to go to England and when you crash you go to Spain. That way you’ll never get to England!” -- Carlos Checa

              Nothing worse than getting bitten up! His mouth could be full of diseases

                    Oh yeah, that's even worse.

                    The zombie couldn't ride the bike, so it's a headshot and get it back. But a werewolf? Well that's where you're gonna run into problems. You aren't catching a werewolf and if he's nicked your pushy when he's in human form, he's just gonna ride off on it.

                    You're pretty well fucked either way.

                        Sorry man, we tried.

                        Supernatural bike thieves are just beyond our field of expertise.
