About two weeks after it was stolen it was brought into a local bike shop for "repairs." The shop team thought it was sort of odd and the bike was damaged in a way that suggested an attempt had been made to modify it. They checked with Bike Index and got a hold of me. translated from English

My eMTN bike was found yesterday, stashed in my neighbor's bushes - literally a block from my home. They had been out on vacation and didn't see the bike until they came home. They entered the serial number off the bike into Bike Index and they called me. THANK YOU BIKE INDEX! translated from English
