The owner of an expensive mountain bike that was stolen from outside Melbourn Co-op on Friday is appealing for information.
Steve Baker left his bike in the rack at about 2pm on Friday while he nipped into the shop, but when he returned he discovered that it had been taken.
He said: “It’s not something that usually happens around Melbourn, although my brother had his van broken into about three or four weeks ago.
“I didn’t have my lock with me. They suspect that somebody walked into the shop for two minutes, then walked back out again and took it. It is worth about £2,000. I’ve had it for a few years and I regularly go on long bike rides.”
One distinguishable feature about the bike is that he replaced a bolt on the rear suspension. He said: “I could walk up to it and say that is my bike.”
