Yay! w00t! Celebration! Hooray!

The police have recovered my Brompton. They phoned this morning, I've now got it back. It seems to be in fairly good condition, just having suffered a little damage to the rear light. They have a suspect in custody after a warrant raid last night, recovering several bikes including mine.

Update: Press Release about the recent haul of stolen bikes that the police have recovered.

Right, that's the Brompton added to my home contents insurance for cover away from home (it wasn't covered otherwise). Turns out adding it to the Direct Line policy was cheaper and had more flexible conditions than specialist cycle insurers. That was about £3.60/month for £750 of bike, which seems to be a reasonable balance of cost and risk to me.

I've also decided that any cable lock is just a bad idea, so despite the inconvenience on a folder, ordered a top rated U-lock. (I've always used a U-lock on my standard bike).
