Last night some low life oxygen thief was kind enough to smash the tailgate of our 3 week old car and steal my poor bike. Pretty sure we were targeted as they touched nothing else and ignored the other car that was in a darker spot.
It is/was a 2011 Fuji Altamira 2.0, black/white with Oval carbon wheels, white bar tape,and polar computer. . If anyone sees an unlikely sort on one, or if it pops up on ebay/gumtree/bike exchange or a pawn shop I'd love it if they could let me know.
Terrible news Ben. Hope it turns up or you are adequately insured.
hope its insured and never turns up for your sake, its much better that way.
no one got hurt, thats the important thing.
That sux, where was your car parked?
In the driveway Gus, maybe 10m from bedroom window and didnt hear a thing. Pretty sure they used a Messenger newspaper to quieten the blow to break the glass, Im a light sleeper and heard nothing.
Patrick and Frank, home and contents should cover it, got fingers toes and anything else possible crossed right now though that the full cost gets covered
Bad luck mate, that does suck.
Can't believe you where sleeping deeply enough for that to happen with a new baby in the house!
A bike sitting in a car overnight is not gonna last long unless your parked in the middle of the desert unfortunately.
Sorry to hear this Ben...I think people are using Strava to target bikes?
Check you home & contents carefully...some have limits on "contents in open air" while on the property. The bike may have needed to be in an enclosed part of the building or shed to be covered for theft.
I have home & contents insurance with 'extras'. So goods covered when travelling with the goods but limit of $1,000 per item.
We will certainly be keeping a sharp eye out for it Ben, hope it works out for you, good luck.
