Gee, Interpol must have been involved in this. Surely headline should have been"Horrendous bike theft"? Obviously an international gang is involved here. How can a bike cost 800 quid??

My last two bikes (which were both stolen in separate incidents) were valued at £1600 and £1300 when new.

Not all of us want to ride around on bikes assembled from welded together sections of scaffolding pole!
