    Default I want my bicycle back!

    My Aluminium 'Gary Fisher' mountain bike costing more than $2K bicycle was stolen yesterday, just below my block which I had I temporarily parked (I normally keep it at home). I called 999 but was told that they cannot do anything but to report to the nearby police post. Undenyingly, I was told that the chances of recovery is slim. I believe it is as good as gone now. I appreciate any advice just to get my bicycle back ???

    How long is your temporarily? If just for a short while, could be someone staying around that few blocks only. Keep a look out. And also check the surrounding for any shop selling bike and 2nd hand stuff. If you wait for the Police..... good luck.

    3 hours and it was locked. Most likey a big cutter was used and the lock thrown away so that no traces are left behind.

    Mine $200, less than 2 months, stolen too. I thought Singapore is a safe place, I bought such a thin lock. The next bicycle that I have, I bought 2 very thick locks!!!

    some desperate thieves will dismantle the bicycle on the spot, especially overnight, leaving only the locks, so it's not about the locks sometimes
