Thieves steal bikes worth thousands from Hotlines' London show

By BikeRadar | Friday, October 8, 2010 9.00am

Thieves broke into the gallery where Hotlines have been holding their London show and stole thousands of pounds worth of bikes early this morning.

They took a prototype Nuke Proof downhill bike (more on this later today), top-end Lapierre mountain bikes including the new DH Team, a Ghost SE 5000 hardtail and Lynskey Helix titanium road frame.

The bikes were taken at around 3.30am from the Dray Walk Gallery, just off Brick Lane. They're easily recognised – see below for details – and Hotlines are offering a reward for information leading to their retrieval. Email or call 0131 319 1444.
