I was contacted by numerous people who found the bike on Craigslist. They looked the bike up on Bike Index and realized it was stolen. The seller gave the bike back. Thank you everyone who contacted me about the posting and thank you to Bike Index for the amazing platform and community. translated from English

Becca Bike recovered 2020.7.5

I got a call from a high schooler who bought the bike on Offerup last week. When cleaning it up he saw the serial number was scratched off so he did some digging to see if it was stolen. He came across my Bike Index post - all the components matched so he called me to return it! translated from English
