Hi, I had my Cannondale Jekyll stolen yesterday(01/01/2010) from the back of my van yesterday in the Mc Donalds car park in Sheffield on the ring road whilst traveling up to Edale for the weekend. I'm from Norfolk so won't be around after sunday so I'm trying to circulate a description around all the shops before I go. The bike is quite distinctive so I hoping it my get seen on the trails or someone might try to trade it in, so I would be very greatfull if you would keep an eye out for it or ask any of the local riders if they have seen it.

I don't seem to have a pic of the built bike but I do have this pic of the frame and fork before it was built (anyone who things they may have seen it please e-mail me for pic), I purchased the frame from the U.S and it wasn't issued in the U.K in this colour so it's pretty much a one off!!!!

This is the full build of the bike-
Frame-Lime green Jekyll.
Fork-Carbon fibre lefty fork with matching lime green crowns, it also has an electronic lockout (switch mounted to handle bar).
Stem- Hope-anodized gold.
Bars-Easton monkey light carbon fibre.
Brakes-Hope mono m4s with floating gold discs, anodized gold levers and resevoir caps. Also all the fitting bolts are gold, all the hose connectors are goodridge anodized gold with gold brake hoses.
Drive chain-All shimano XT but with XTR m952 shifters, it also has a gold KMC chain.
Wheels-Same as shown on the green bike above but with black tires. Rims are Mavic X 317 citrous (lime green),rear hub is a green Chris king with black spokes. Front wheel is the same but with a silver hub.
Pedals-Silver Shimano Dx.
Seat-Azonic hotseat.
Also all the gear cable are braided gold to match the brake lines and the it has a rear mud guard fitted.

I know this seems a little detailed but this just incase it gets broken into parts. This bike took years to build and cost thousands and won't be able to get another even if I had the money so any help would be much appreciated.

P.S I have sent out lots of e-mail so may have sent you this e-mail more than once but with an up dated picture.

At a guess I would say the one on queens road as you would come in to sheffield that way from norfolk.  You would also probably go up queens road to chesterfield road to get out to edale once you had come off the parkway.

On a side note any where in new zealand.

Hi Charlie,

Sorry to hear that your bike has been stolen.  I'll  keep  an eye out.

I've split your post out into a new thread so it's more likely to be seen, rather than half way down a thread.
