Eagle-Eyed Retailer Spots Stolen Bike15 Feb 2018
There was some great detective work from Adam at the Cycles UK store in Greenwich who identified a stolen Specialized bike using BikeRegister.
The bike was brought in for a puncture repair by a man who had already taken in a couple of bikes before. This immediately made Adam suspicious, especially as this time the bike was a woman’s one. Adam said he also noticed that an attempt had been made to scratch a label off the frame.
He was aware of the BikeRegister service and how we can check to see if a bike is registered as stolen by using the BikeChecker facility.
Following an enquiry made to our support team the bike has now been reunited with its rightful owner and details of the suspected bike thief passed to the Met Police.
Cycles UK opened its first bike shop in 1997 in Basildon. It now has 12 more shops and is one of the South East’s leading independent bike retail chains and online cycling retailers.
