I detect that you may well be feeling a little angered? I may see in in B&Q whilst I'm stocking up on sledgehammer handles and 6 inch nails However, each to their own for having an opinion but I'd lay off calling folk on here morons and a bunch of wimps. I'm pretty sure there's another forum called s1n51track or something like that were they like a good feckin moaner
Breathe in, breathe out, a bit of anger management required methinks. If you're going to come on here and have a massive rant, at least register properly and introduce yourself. We're a friendly bunch on here, and mostly we don't SHOUT at each other in capitals because we actually get out and ride with each other instead of hiding behind our keyboards
I give up. you lot go hide away your bikes and live with the consequences. each to his own. I personally will be advertising to the world that if anyone f***s with my bike I will destroy them. Its not personal, its a principle thing. To be honest I'd love to live in a society that did not tolerate crime but unfortunately I do not. I live in a society full of you whingers who think the answer is to meekly accept that the thief holds all the advantages. I'd absolutely love to live in a society where the police force I pay (very well) to protect both me and my property actually put some of that resource to good effect and set about actually deterring crime by administering some form of punishment for the perpetrators. I don't though do I.
It would even be as difficult to take if you lot didn't completely miss the point. its not about beating up thieves you morons, its about the thief understanding that his action will have a consequence. THAT is a deterrent. Its far more forward thinking than anything you have come up with. Yes it relies on catching one but if you skin that twat and put his head on a pole outside your castle his mates are going to have to REALLY want that bike.
I'm starting to understand I'm simply on the wrong side. The truth of the matter is a set of bolt cutters and a hoodie and I can stop expressing my pointless opinion on here and take solace in the fact that although I've had to take to crime to replace my Marin at least I'm stealing from a bunch of spineless wimps.
You'll know its me because the last footage you'll get is me winking at you as I steal your £200 camera equipment as well just to prove a point.
Of course I'm kidding, I mean, surely I'd get caught and locked up now wouldn't I?
Quality post but if you'd just typed "I'm a knob" it would have saved yo a lot of time
One more thing to help you keep hold of your bike that I have just remembered.
Never, EVER leave your bike on the bike racks at Llandegla unattended while you go inside for a drink !
It is not uncommon for local little scumbags to go up there dressed in biking gear, watch for someone to park their bikes up, and when they're in the cafe casually take the bike off the rack and ride off. And as they're dressed in biking kit, no-one looks twice
A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day.
Yes I think Degla is one of the biggest bike theft hot spots. If I'm at the cafe with anyone I always make sure someone is out with the bikes while ordering at the caff. If on my own I usually don't bother. That said I really haven't been there much lately. Not sure about renewing the season ticket this Nov.
I got complacent and started to lock my bike up outside the pub door under the cctv as you will see from the pic it was a big mistake. I usually take my bike through to the beer garden where nobody can nick it as you have to go through the pub to get to it. I will be forever kicking myself about this but one simple decision could of avoided that scumbag hack sawing my lock off which wasn't the best lock had I had a more robust higher grade one it would of taken longer to saw through if at all so he may not of attempted to go for the bike.
Its often a small oversight that can lead to an opportunity for a scumbag to take your bike. If I'm lucky enough to spot my bike I will dial 999 after I have recovered my property. I have had a lead so whoever stole it is very local to me.
I'm sure he's nicked my clothes,wink wink.it's dreadfull the front people have these days iv had stuff nicked out my van at my fathers,about 3 years past nothing just learn to lock everything away out of sight now good luck on getting it back
