Stolen from Kingston, SW London this afternoon. Bronze Raleigh Forge large size, Schwalbe Land cruise tyres, no chain guard but a distinctive front mudguard flap with a distinctive “RAW” motif thereon instead.
I got a little casual in the hot weather and used a cheap cable lock instead of my Abus lock, be warned.

Only takes a few secs with a lithium 4" grinder.
I always use two locks so it takes a nit longer, I think they look for easy targets /cheap cable locks firstly.

Sorry to hear that Johnocyprus. Thanks for the reminder to be double d-lock cautious. I've been a bit overly relaxed.

It turns out to be so easy for a thief?

I have seen so many entry level ebikes cable locked to bike racks at M&S lately, I can't help but think £1000+ bike £15.00 lock, I too use two locks, three on odd occasions and remove my battery unless it stays in sight.

Sorry to hear about :(

But e bikes being expensive shall be a target for thieves sadly
have you got the serial number and any pics also of your bike
then hopefully u reported to the police.

If still on forum as i see this was july 2019 long time ago now
would be good to let us all know what happened ?

Re-did this person/s get caught ? and did u get your bike back
or is it gone for good ?
