stolen bike :-(

If you see this bike, please get in touch with me via email and I’ll put you in touch with Tim. Thank you.



Hi All, I’m sorry to bother you with this, however I thought it might be useful.

I was in Canberra on the weekend for the Rockytrails 100 at Stromlo.  We were staying at the Brakefree Apartments in Marcus Clarke Street.  Unfortunately I parked the car in the outside carpark with my bike locked on top.  Having the bike locked was no deterrent as it was stolen sometime during the night.

It is a very distinctive bike as you can see from the pics (note, the first pic was take a few months ago and the second pic is the latest).  It is a Specialized single speed with the following components:


Frame:                  Specialized Rockhopper SL singlespeed with eccentric bottom bracket

Fork:                      Cannondale Lefty Speed fork

Handlebar:          Truvativ Stylo World Cup Flat, 700mm, 10 degree sweep

Brakes:            Avid Elixir 9 hydraulic with 180 front & 160 rear 6 bolt rotors

Wheels:               DT Swiss X470 with Lefty SL32 hole front hub

Tyres:                    New Specialized The Captain 2” Sport (put on just before the race so not shown in the pics)

Crank:                   Truvativ Firex 3.3

Chainring:            Blackspire – MTB Mono Veloce Single Speed 7075 Series 2013 4-Bolt 104mm 32t Black

Chain:                   KMC Chains X9 Light Gold 9 Speed Chain Each – 116 Links – Gold

Sprocket:             Gusset Wheels Hubs Double Six Single Speed Conversion Kit with 17t sprocket

Seatpost:             Thomson Masterpiece Layback Seatpost 30.9mm 350mm BLACK 7 Deg Layback

In the off chance that you come across the bike, can you contact me or the Canberra police.

Many thanks
