Have you seen her?

Tell me, have you seen her?

I know you don’t normally do this, but.. My mountain bike was stolen over the weekend from the back of my van. The van was parked in the basement of my apartment building in Inchicore [Dublin 8].

I put her together myself. It’s an orange Cotic Soul frameset with X Fusion sweep forks, Shimano SLX groupset and Fulcrum Red Power wheels.

The frame is kinda rare so if some feckin Jawa is spotted riding it, chances are it’s mine.

I picked the orange frame because it reminded me of my first love – an orange Raleigh Scorpion I got from Santy when I was a kid.

I know you “don’t usually do this” but I found a tiny lost sheep in Drumcondra last night.

It looks very well loved and I’m sure someone is missing him or her.
They’re all wrapped up at home, recovering from the shock.

If the owner spots this, they can ping me on Twitter maybe?


They call her ‘Neon Nina’.

You really can’t miss her.

I know there are terrible things happening in the world and this will seem utterly trivial, but this is Neon Nina (who was crafted by the lovely lads at FunkedUp.com) and she’s been thieved from our scurrilous streets (well Baggot Street, Dublin 2 specifically) in the dead of night.

I am desperately fond of her and am aware of the slim chance of getting her back, but, if I retrieve her from anyone’s sound and observant reports I will cross your palm, or the palm of your chosen charity, with fifty Euros. This is a solemn promise.

She’s a distinctive lass as you can see and she’s a real Mammy’s girl. All help via likes or shares massively appreciated! Sending out as many positive vibes as I can with this one.

I know there are a million worse things that can happen, but this one is a Stage 12 pain in the hoop. Yours, Not-So-Neon Nora…
