Interesting first discussion thread for me to break myself in with!
So after a great weekend away for a wedding in the riverland, it was pretty bloody average to return home yesterday afternoon to see the back gate open and then discover the girlfriends bike gone.
So my little rant.... New Port Quay. Clearly proof that you can take something feral, give it a facelift, yet underneath it's still feral.
That makes for two thefts now from the girlfriends place at New Port. First her GPS from her car and now her push bike.
On the upside, she'll now have to upgrade to a new carbon bike (albeit sooner than planned).
So if anyone comes across an older light blue grey Giant OCR alloy bike, mid 50 cm mark (can't recall specifics), Tiagra gears small Tioga saddle tool bag, Cateye computer etc and shimano pedals. Holla out please! And feel free to inflict pain on the person riding it! LOL
And she wonders why I insisted my new bike has to live inside!

Thanks. Fixed the typo.
New Port Quay is not a suburb of Adelaide and would be meaningless to most people in Adelaide.
Even the actual suburb of New Port wouldn't mean much to most people. Mentioning that its near Port Adelaide would be better
