Stolen In Welly: Super-distinctive Tourer

Postby squiddity on Sat 12/Nov/11 10:23am

So, a few nights ago, my first night living here in NZ (from Canada), my bicycle's stolen from my yard. Kind of my fault, for I should've locked it up, but I was bagged from moving and forgot (ugh ugh ugh).

Anyway, it's a Novara Safari; probably one of the few, if not the only, of its make in New Zealand, 'cause it's REI housebrand from the States. This bike is ~long~, the XL version, with ridiculous wheelbase, and the handlebars are those figure-"eight" trekking-style ones.

If you're a cyclist in Wellington, please keep an eye open! This bike's seriously my baby (not to mention worth more than all my other stuff combined), and brought me from Vancouver to Los Angeles then Auckland to Wellington. If you see a bike like this, it's probably it, but mine also has a zig-zag scratch on the top tube and a bit of electrician's tape repairing a rip in the handlebar tape.

Thanks~

Nn, I've been keeping an eye on Trade Me, Simonious, but I'd probably save some time by setting up a saved search, f'sure.

Hope you get your steed back. That is a truly shite way to be inducted into Wellington.
