This is a letter I had hoped I would never have to write but unfortunately we had a break in on Tuesday night. Amongst various office computers, clothing, helmets and the like – the scumbags also took a decent amount of Santa Cruz and Ibis bikes, including pretty much the world's only Santa Cruz Tallboy that had been shipped over for the Eurobike launch next week.
Dickon Hepworth - Santacruz UK explains all..Tallboy spec
Colour: matte carbon with dark red graphics (one side only)
Shock: Fox RP23 boost valve
Fork: Fox 32 F29 100 RLC Taper 15mm (black)
Spec: XTR with Avid Elixir CR Mag brakes / Easton low rise Monkeylite bars, EA90 stem / Chris King tapered inset headset (black) / Thomson Masterpiece seatpost w/ WTB Silverado saddle / Mavic TN 719 rims on DT 240S hubs / Kenda Smallblock 8 tyres / Unique Santa Cruz rear QR.
THE ONE STOLEN WAS BLACK
The Tall Boy is a 29er - 29inch wheels dumbo. So if you see some little 5ft 6ins chav(Council House and Violent) on it, don't do what we do, clothes line them and then stamp on their head. Instead grab them by the scruff of their neck and inform the Police.
This is certainly the only bike of its kind in Europe. And one of only a handful made so far – so it's going to stand out like a sore thumb on the trails. Please ask everyone out there – riders, shops and the like, to keep an eye out.
There were also several other bikes, details of which will follow once we start clearing through the mess.
Obviously your help in spreading the word on this is much appreciated – please contact Jungle Products with any information.

In 1986 POLICE 5 was directly responsible for the recovery of a set of 12 priceless medallions stolen from Kew Palace. They were sent to Shaw anonymously after he has said on the programme that "…the loser, a very distinguished lady, was not amused." They were sent to Shaw, through the post, wrapped in toilet paper.
One good medal deserves another and in 1987 Shaw Taylor was awarded an MBE… and at the investiture at Buckingham Palace ‘The distinguished lady’ thanked him personally. " I think I owe you this" she said. "With respect Your Majesty" replied Shaw "you owe me twelve." He is still waiting for the other eleven.
