Police were able to recover my bike within one week of it being stolen! The officer who found it said there's no way he would've been able to do it without the Bike Index. Thank you folks for making and sustaining this resource, I can't express how grateful I am to have my beloved bike back!

Molly Bike recovered 9.27.2017

Stolen in 2013, this Surly was found by @ppbbiketheft officers in 2017 and ID'd in the Bike Index. Thieves had swapped out the fork, handlebars, pedals, brakes, saddle ... but it's home.

The bike was purchased at a garage sale in Milwaukee. After purchase, the buyer checked the serial number and the search connected them to the Bike Index stolen report. I was contacted and arrangements were made to recover. Thanks Jake!

Bianca Bike recovered 9.10.2017
