Stolen Bikes: 2005 Giant Reign from Edinburgh

Thieving scumbags have stolen Owen Williams’ Giant Reign 2 and Specialized Allez from his house in South Queensferry, Edinburgh on Sunday night, 20th January.

The Allez roadbike was Owen’s transport to work and the Reign was his occasional weekend-warrior joy machine (being a father of two young kiddies).

Owen says he needs to replace the racer but can’t afford to replace the mountain bike (like for like) so is trying everything to get some leads and track down the Giant Reign.

The bikes might be stripped down now and scattered as parts on Ebay, but keep an eye out and let us know in the comments if you see anything.

And if anyone has any good tips about what to do if you spot your stolen bike on Ebay then let us know in the comments. I know informing the police is key but often the bike has been sold before they act.
