JLT-Condor team bikes stolen from warehouse in London

by CyclingTips

Ten JLT-Condor team bikes were stolen Sunday night from Condor’s warehouse in London, road.cc reported.

All bikes were 2016 black and yellow custom Condor frames, with unique reference numbers, specific to each rider, marked on the bottom bracket. Among the bikes stolen was one that had been raced by three-time Olympic team pursuit gold medalist Ed Clancy.

The stolen bikes are all fitted with Campagnolo Record and Super Record group sets, Fizik finishing kits, and black and yellow paintwork and saddle, in sizes 52, 55 and 58cm. They are estimated at around £5,000 each. CyclingWeekly.com reported that thieves used an angle grinder to break into the warehouse.

Claire Beaumont, Marketing Manager for Condor and Communications Manager for Condor JLT, told road.cc that the fact that all the bikes are custom built to each rider, and some are prototypes, will make them easy for Condor to identify, and difficult for thieves to sell
