wild. Really sounds like an inside job. Stealing 22 bikes required some proper logistics just to get the goods away and stored.

yeah, can't really see  how this can be done without internal information.

I was thinking the same thing... to transport 22 crated bikes ain't no small task...

oh wow.  assume they have proper trackers so would know where the offload/transfer location was.

I wonder why it is now CL trying to recover the bikes. seems like Courier company and their insurance should be doing the hard yards here.

 

 

this is going to be hard to shift for what it's list value is in conventional channels

I suspect CL is just getting the word out there so the community can be on the look out.

Yeah I think it’s good to get the word out even if there is an insurance claim happening, and make these bikes unsellable to our community once stolen and reported to the community as stolen.. might stop this from becoming a bigger problem.. 

but then again they will probably always find a buyer as people love a deal and are quick to look the other way.. “oh I didn’t know the 200k bike I just bought for 50k was stolen🤷🏼‍♂️..” yaa right,pal..🙄

Good grief.. this is not local small business, this sounds like a syndicate, who move stock outside our borders.

it smells of an inside job, a huge shipment of phones worth millions was once hit ( huge truck) a few years back and I spoke to the guys who Handle the security, it was found that these guys do everything… from phones to bikes etc. All items are kept stored in safe haven secure estates and shipped to new owners. Our wonderful police need to step up and start following leads that go beyond SA!
