Two months on and Michael from Nelson still has not got his bike back. It wasn’t insured so that leaves him without a DH bike. It has not appeared on Trademe so if anyone has any details about it’s whereabouts please contact the police, give him a call on 0221607140 or get in contact with us here at the QMTBC and we can arrange a quiet return to Michael.
The original story …
Michael from Nelson was in Queenstown recently enjoying our amazing trails when some bastard stole his DH rig. It happened on Saturday night 25th May and had to complete the rest of his South Island DH road trip without a bike!
Whoever it was didn’t take the clearly more valuable bike on the bike rack so it might have been taken by someone who had had a few drinks and just wanted to ride home. An easy way of confirming the identity of the bike would be an old pink bike park tag under the seat, it can be seen in one of the photos.
If anyone can help out or has seen it Michael would love to hear from you, he only wants the bike back he does not want any dramas with the person – just his Bike. He does not have any insurance for it so its bad news for Michael!
If anyone knows anything or would like to return it you can contact the club on email@example.com and we’d be happy to arrange a quiet return to the rightful owner.
