PRESS RELEASE: Propain Bicycles
We came back from the Riva Bike festival unscathed, that’s the good news. Unfortunately, there is also some bad news to report:
Between Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday evening (07-08.05.19), our event truck was burgled in Vogt, Germany and most of our demo bikes were stolen. Fortunately, our two E-Bike prototypes were unloaded the evening before for a setup test and are safe and sound.
In total, 17 bikes with a value of around €72,000 were stolen.
Bike theft is becoming more and more common. We need to keep our eyes and ears open to make it difficult for those who target other's possessions Please be careful with secondhand bikes, check the background including frame number (see list below) to make sure it’s not one of our stolen bikes.
