Buy a massive D lock, I got one from Halfrauds at not too expensive. Glad you got your bike back Smile Just shows the general IQ of a Fanet thief!

Great that you got your bike back,pity the low life aren't doing time.These wire cable locks are so easy to cut,even a normal pair of pliers will cut through them,although bolt cutters are easier.Have had to cut through a few in the past,at a place I used to work at,when people forgot keys or lock jammed.Even D locks can be got through depending on how cheap,what there attached to etc.

Great result.
Can I upgrade the forum advice from "buy a better lock" to "don't leave expensive attractive bike out in the open for scum bags to see"?
Even if they decide not nick it there and then they might follow you home and break into your shed or house on the basis that if you have a nice bike you probably have other stuff worth taking.
The best way to not be a victim is to not appear to be a victim.

You wouldn't be allowed to film it with the police presence.

The police couldnt stop you filming if it was in a public place. The only way they can legally stop you filming in public is under the anti terrorism act (either section 41 or 42 I cant remember which).

Great result getting the bike back.

Great result getting the bike back.

Would that not be a complete misuse of the anti terrorism act (though I have suspected Jams of jihadist intentions in the past) ?

Top result!
Well done ;D

Some scum bag has nicked my spare wheel, possibly whilst I was typing my reply on here so the balance of the universe is corrected.
