Someone found it in their backyard bushes, only a few blocks away! Thanks Bike Index and my neighbor who bothered to look it up! It's been my year-round commuter vehicle for 7 years, I am glad to have it home after only 1 week missing.

I found it on the street! Locked to a city post. Literally 10 feet away from the bike shop I was about to walk into and buy a new one. Cops were able to identify it through the Bike Index.
