A surveillance camera recently filmed an attempted bike theft in Clontarf, Ireland. Just as the thief was starting to ride off, a bike mechanic tackled him and chased him away.
The video was posted by 360 Cycles Clontarf, which noted: “How quick can a bike be robbed?? Less than 17 seconds based on this video. One of our senior mechanics was very lucky to get away with about [$250] worth of damage rather than losing his carbon racing bike. This happened in Clontarf over the weekend and we would like to urge all bike owners to lock their bikes at all times even if you are just leaving it for under a minute. Please like and share this video to help us raise awareness!”
