Racing Bikes Stolen from INSIDE Car!!

Hi Guys,


Please keep your eyes peeled for my 2 racing bikes that were stolen from my car on Thursday 23rd Jan. I had been to a number of meetings through the afternoon covering the Post Office Centre, Illovo ; Thrupps , Illovo ; Sportron House, Bryanston ; Sandton Medi Clinic and Nicole Way Centre.


Only on leaving Nicole way centre late int he afternoon afetr a hectic day I realised my Trek bike was no longer on the back seat and then also realised my resprayed black " Qhubeka" Cervelo was also no longer in the boot I'm engaging the various security companies to assist with teh CCTV footage , who are all being fairly helpful. The honest truth is whilst I only realised on leaving Nicoleway, this could have happened earlier int he afternoon. It appears I've been a victim of some brazen remote jamming allowing the thieves to access my car without raising alarm or concern. These guys must have been disturbed as they amazingly left 1 bike behind in the boot. They would have also only carried the bikes away as the wheels were off.


My Thule pull along was also taken with my MTN Qhubeka team kit including sidi and bont shoes, 2 pairs speed play pedals and cleats ( i had been to a bike fitting earlier in the morning with Activeworx)


I've attached pic's the bikes which you'd agree are pretty unique.

Whilst bikes are replacing able the sentimental value I have on them is greater.
