I am really sorry to hear this. I worry every time I leave my bike locked up that some bastard like this will take it and it is rotten that it has happened to you. Are the police putting the CCTV footage up by any chance? There are a few thousand people on this site who would love to see it and maybe identify the &%@ker for you. Hope you get it back. Maybe cruise around the various crime converters outlets.
It sh&ts me to tears that if a cyclist was to maybe smash his face inside out with his bolt cutters, who'd be the bad guy (or girl)?
