Please note: This bike is not for sale, it is a plea for help to find it!
On Monday the 28th of July between 11:00am and 2:30pm my bike was stolen from a bike stand on Spring Gardens, a side street off Market Street in Manchester City centre.
The bike is a Specialized Sirrus Elite with a medium frame. When stolen it had front/rear pannier racks attached as well as two adjustable water bottle cages, a back light and a mount for a front light. The bike has a scratch at the front where the cables enter the body of the bike, this was due to them being badly fitted at first causing damage, the cables were later fitted properly by the shop.
The bike was set up in preparation for a cycle tour starting Wednesday the 6th of August. I can not afford a new one and unless it is returned our plans (over a year in the making) will be cancelled.
Please, if you know anything please contact the police ASAP. The crime number is 113026J/14. I can offer a £100 reward for the bikes return. Thank you
