Stolen bicycles we helped recover recently:

Cory from Center for Bicycle Repair called about a bike that came into his shop. He ran it through Bike Index and reached out immediately. I picked it up on the same day. Never thought I'd see it again and relatively unscathed! This registry is amazing. Can't thank y'all enough! translated from English

Bryan at Bike Index notified me that my bike was for sale on Offerup! I contacted the seller and informed him that the bike had been stolen and provided pictures/info, including my Bike Index registration. From video, I knew he was not the person that stole the bike. translated from English
