Just caught the train back from town after a leaving do. There was my bike in one piece, but not quite. Here in my prosperous Cheshire market town, someone had made the effort to nick my light brackets, front and back.
As a crime, this must rate as one of the most gratuitous. As you get through front and back lights, you always end up with more brackets than you need, even with the fleet of bikes I’ve got. Other nickable items – saddle, pedals – could just about make sense. But the light brackets?
Any stories to share with this victim of the most literal of petty crimes?
