Sep 9, 2008
by Simon Paton  
Whilst away at Eurobike, Nigel's house was broken into while his mum was asleep (she has Alzheimers). They then stole his van keys, then stole his van and all of his bikes from the garage.Guys,

Please keep em peeled, on e-Bay, the streets and tracks not just around the North West part of England but across the U.K and maybe even abroad! If you come across anything please contact the Police and Nigel Page.

 Suck for him to loose that much.... but someone who stole these bikes will probably sell them apart not the whole bike cuz if so, he will be the biggiest shithead ever.
  • 24 1
 lol..give him some advices how to sell it savely...
  • 25 2
 guys its england, it will be some little smack head and hell get a slap on the wrists and some community service if they catch him. stealing cars in the uk is a national pass time lol. ive had some kids make a hole in a 2ft thick stone wall to steal one of my bikes. hope YOU find them dude, give them some proper justice.

 how funny would it be if he tried selling them on pinkbike?
  • 3 0
 Lol... What ass, How would he be able to go unnoticed when using/Selling custom build bikes that make it clear that you have a LARGE sponsor.. And the car...Like WTF? He wouldn't be able to sell it or drive it without being gaught. All of the stolen goods can be easily spotted because of this note on PB and their color

 I think my comment was erased... Who is censoring this? And if this is true, why are people allowed to say Kill Kill, or use derogatory words towards homosexuals? LAME.

 smackheads aint bright enough to steal stuff liek that, what would they do with it. sounds planned to me, waited for him to be away, knew where his keys and bikes were, prolly closer to home than that.
  • 2 1
 yeah 'mad-mk66'
how much of an idiot r u?

if the guy, or group of them rather, could steal a van & 6 bikes, do you think he/they are so stupid that they need this thread to figure out parting them is safer than selling whole?! WTF!

Really? there sitting here on PB nervously trying to figure out what to do next. Really?

pull your head from your a** retard!

 At what point do we start putting GPS trackers in these bikes? We do it for our dogs, why not our bikes? How sweet would it be to bust in to the thief's house with a pair of wooden bats with nails drilled through? Lights out bitches!

 damn. That really sucks. his sponsorships could be on the line because no bike=no racing/practicing/doing photo shoots/etc. but at least he's a pro, so he gets a good discount. but that still doesn't make it right. god, wouldn't it be funny if the guy who stole the bikes tried to sell em on here? he would be screwed. even though he allready is.

 Sheesh and I whined about my cheap azz bike getting jacked, nickels and dimes compared to this news...I feel for you Nigel and do hope you get your goods back in the condition they left in. On that can we all please start pushing for a way to protect our bikes and know where they are at the click of a mouse or whatever...bike theft is BS! C'mon industries, the required technology has been here for a long time now! Time to get it appropriately packaged and to the cycling markets already!

 The problem in the uk, atm the police dont really give a fuck about bike theft, they only care about stabbings and burglary and shit. The only way these are gonna be reclaimed is if the right person finds whichever little scrotes has em.
  • 2 0
 sucks to hear.

Call up Cam Mccaul, he'll get it back.

But seriously, any dillhole who sells the frame is gonna give him self away. or he's gonna just take it into a pawnshop get jackshit for it, and have some money for what ever "activities" he enjoys.

 There was 20 bikes stolen in 1 week at my uni, including mine, and the police didnt even put out a patrol after the first one was reported. needless to say nothing was done. Nigel paige is a ledgend. I really hope you get your bikes back! ps. The SS is the best bike ever!

 People stealing bikes need to get their testicles ripped off. Of course in a rather violent way.

I´ll keep my eyes open, though I doubt that they´re going to ride around on them just like that. Same goes for the Van.
It´s been the same story with Multivan-Merida (Worldcup XC Team) - they had their brandnew all-carbon fullies stolen at the first WC in Belgium this year. Giant, the swiss national team and some others had their bikes stolen, too. Somebody even tried to open a Merida-Van in Madrid with a huge can-opener. Crazy shit.


But never the less, good luck to Nigel!

 Hey Guys,

Thanks for your comments. Not heard anything yet about the Van or bikes? So if anyone hears or seeing anything I would appreciate you letting me know. Yeah wish I could find the t--t's that nicked them all when my mum was there. Thanks for your mint advice zackmorris-1975 the bikes were not covered on my house insurance. I would have to be a millionaire to add those onto my contents insurance. But next time I am riding past a lake I will think about your advice? No wonder its impossible to insure bikes with people doing what you suggest!!!

Thanks again everyone.

Cheers

 My mate had his bike robbed from him in the woods next to this guy's house, we saw him the day my mates got robbed too, we waited for 3 hours for the police to come, then had to get a lift home. The police are absolutely shit here in england.
  • 0 0
 unfortunatly theive's over here are not that stupid and once they realise someone is onto them or they find out how rare a bike/part is they tend to just burn it (the van will either be abonanded, burnt or stipped and sold in parts) Frown but hopefully he will try and sell it then he will get caught, but i live in the north west so ill keep and eye open and inform some people.

 Not only is he gonna have the law after him, but when the cycling community finds him... he's gonna wish it had been the law. Best of luck finding them. (and give us a post when you do)

 ha,you guys keep referring to what would happen to the scumbags if the police get them? like that will happen,im sorry if any of u are police on here but,they are all just fat useless feckers,it WILL be a biker that gets his hands on the wee punks,and god help his ass when one of us does!
me and my boys will hold the fort up in scotland,well the edinburgh/inners area anyways!
  • 2 2
 who gives a shit just get the insurance to cover it...they give you the retail value in cash then with Nigel's great discount he's gonna make a nice profit. So for all you out there who want a new bike just break into your own house grab your ride and go ride it into the lake just remember to take some pictures of a better bike to show the insurance. Good day all!
  • 2 1
 surely its just harsh man, some one broke into his house, not exactly a great day at the park! oh but who cares insurance will cover it, and push up his premium u fucking knobend!

 You've never tried to get insurance on a bike over here then I guess...it's ridiculously expensive. And yeah, Nige probably will get great discount on replacement bikes, and a new van, but that's not the point really is it.
Hope you're mum's ok after the ordeal. We'll have our eyes open in Somerset Smile

 I made a claim on a bike that got ripped off insurance paid for it. Rates don't go up on home insurance after claims are made for stolen items. Even if they do home owner insurance is cheap its not like car insurance... If your car is stolen the rates dont go up much either, its not like crashing your car and making a claim DUDE. "almostwise" you don't insure your bike its covered under home owners insurance. I agree I feel for Nigel but I'm just saying theres really no point in trying to find the dude just go through insurance. benjiscott82 I'm probably not the first to say this but your a "bloody c*nt" as you British say.

 hahahaha, i, may be indeed! dont want to start a debate of blood lines but surely a large percentage of americans and canadians alike are descendants from 'us brits'

just thought it was abit callous of you to have an unforgiving tyraid about a poor bloke whos had his house broken into, car and 4bikes stolen, ie: his livelyhood taken away from him, ah well, maybe i just dont understand your unmitigating point of view

 and yes trying to make a claim to greedy insurance companies after a house breakin over here is a truely complete and utter fart on and hassle, especially trying to prove what you owned in the first place that was stolen.

 Yeh its a good thing there are so many custom parts and paintjobs etc on there to make them stand out any where on the market or out in the public. Were there any other homes broken into??
