ATB sales van broken into, 11 bikes stolen

Marin prototype model stolen

A prototype Marin 4X bike was stolen last night along with 11 other models totalling £30,000.

The ATB Sales van was broken in to near Bury and was totally cleared out of both the bikes and all kit, which included:

Four Marin Wolf Ridge bikes
Four Marin Mount Vision bikes
Two Whyte E120 bikes
One Prototype short travel Marin 4X bike – the only one in the UK
One Prototype Marin Attack trail- different geometry to standard spec
Various tools, THE full face helmets, boxes loaded with pedals and spares

Andrew Dodd at BikeRadar told BikeBiz: "The Marin 4X bike is the only bike of its kind in the UK, and has a custom white paintjob, with gold and red graphics. It has a white Rockshox Revelation fork, deep section rims with Mountain Biking UK stickers on, and has a very tricked out build."

"The Attack Trail is bright orange, has a slightly slacker head angle than stock, and has a 38 tooth chainring with MRP chain guide up front, Hope brakes, Answer handlebars and Rockshox Pike forks with Push tuning."

ATB Sales are offering a reward for recovery, or for information leading to recovery of these bikes.
