Ram raiders steal distinctive cycles from high-end London bike shop

Walthamstow’s Racer Rosa was ram raided last night and the thieves stole three highly-distinctive bicycles.

The high-end store has bikes made for it in Italy, and has clients such as the former long-jumper and now TV presenter Jonathan Edwards.

In a tweet, the store’s owners said: "Ram-raided last night – display bikes and wheels were stolen – please share this and let us know if you see any on sale."

The bikes stolen include a blue Lombardi Corsa road bike, an orange Lombardi Pista track bike, and a blue Lombardi track bike.

"This is a heavy hit for us but we’ll be back on our feet very soon," said a store tweet responding to Walthamstow MP Stella Creasy’s comment that the "fab" business had been attacked and needed help.
