> £116,000 worth of bikes stolen in pre-planned raid on family-run shop
The break-in in Perthshire came only days after £116,000 worth of bikes were stolen from a family-run shop in Co. Londonderry.
13 high-end bikes and five frames were taken from Jonathan Smyth’s renowned Cicli Sport bike shop in Moneymore. The bikes included a custom build Pinarello Dogma F, worth over £15,000, and two Specialized S-Works Tarmac SL7s.
Smyth believes the robbery, thought to be one of the biggest of its kind in Ireland and possibly the UK, was pre-planned as the thieves deliberately targeted the shop’s most expensive, high-end machines.

The EPS on the review bike is current-now-previous gen EPS v4 12v. It's replaced by the incoming wireless groupset which is not on this bike.
