Default Bike theft in Marina Dalmacija, Zadar

We've just had one of our expensive Tern folding bikes stolen overnight in Marina Dalmacija near Zadar. The thief used heavy duty bolt cutters. It could be local villains, of course, but then sailing boats also carry bolt cutters and I'm not naive enough to think that every yachtsman is as honest as Cruiser Log members.

So I'm attaching a photo in case any CL members cruising the Adriatic see something similar (with a new saddle and seat post as the thief didn't get those). The bikes are unique in that they are a special US import, unavailable anywhere in the Med, so if you spot it it's almost definitely ours (unless, of course, you see it on a US-flagged yacht!).

Any sightings please send me a PM and I'll notify the Zadar police.

I hope it is returned. I lost a dinghy and outboard...it really leaves a nasty taste in one's mouth.

I am very sorry for your loss !
This region ... hmmm ... , a lot of thieves out there , and they are very famous of that. Don't be fooled , the militia there won't do anything even if they will know who get your bike. This is former Yugoslavia , so what you can expect ? On my train trip to Split , I met US Marshal , ... he connect his iPhone for charging while we were talking . After 5 minutes his phone was stolen.
