[b]Hi everyone, last week my pride and joys were stolen from my house in Christchurch.
If any one can help it would be great.
I have done the usual things like Police etc but the b*****ds that did this piss me off.
First bike was a Giant Defy1. I only owned it for 2 1/2 months and didnt have a photo of me on it either.
I have used the website pic.
Colour white with a bit of red.
My other was a Giant Trance X1 09 model in blue silver.
Running gear XT with Raceface cranks.
The pic of this is just after the quakes, hence the messy area around it.

Cheers,
Brett

Thanks for any help.

Hi everyone,
Just a quick update.....
The cops managed to catch the guy that stole the bikes.
He got 2yrs prison and the receiver got 1yr home D.
The home D was only because he supposedly has testicular cancer - SHAME. NOT!
One crim out of the system for a while.
