October 2018 update – the bike has been found, literally riding home one day! To celebrate we’ve announced a cargo bike picnic at the Grey Lynn Farmers Market from 9am this Sunday the 14th. More info here: https://www.biketober.bikeauckland.org.nz/2018-cargo-bike-picnic-at-grey-lynn-farmers-market
Unfortunately our beloved electric cargo bike was stolen from below our shop on July 1.
It is a very distinctive bike. There would only be a handful of Gazelle Cabbys in the country and this is possibly the only one converted to electric with the eZee kit. It also has been modified to take front and rear disc brakes. And to make it even easier to spot, Gazelle Cabbys have the frame serial number integrated below the seat, so big that you can see it from a few metres away. Not only that, if the thief cuts off that part of the frame to hide the serial number, they will lose the structural integrity of the frame and it will be obvious that it’s stolen!
If you get any information, please call on 0274330057. If you are actually looking at the bike in the flesh, please do some/all of the following depending on the circumstance:
1 – Call me on 0274330057
2 – Call 111 and quote police report number 180717/6592
3 – Lock it up with a bike lock so that it won’t go anywhere in a hurry while the police show up!
4 – Inform the “new owner” that you know the bike is stolen and that they should return it 🙂
