News just in: Lapierre, Nuke Proof, Lynsky and Ghost bikes are stolen.

We’ve just heard from UK distribution company Hotlines that they have had a whole raft of top end bikes stolen from a gallery in London that they were using for a trade show. Whoever took them has got themselves some pretty special bikes/frames. If anyone out there can help, then read the press release below and give the guys a call:

Break-in at Hotlines London showing during the early hours of Friday 8th October.

Thieves broke in to the Dray Walk Gallery just off Brick Lane at approximately 3:30AM and stole 6 high end and very rare bikes as well as a Lynskey Titanium frame from the Hotlines London show. All of the bikes that were stolen are very rare and as such should be easily recognised. Anyone providing information leading to the retrieval of the bikes will be rewarded.
