Bike Registration that Works

Testimonials:

Thanks to publicity, including news reports and the Bike Index listing, a person saw the stolen bike for sale and suspected it may have been this one. Police were able to confirm the details and return the bike to its owner. The thief has been identified, but no charges have been filed at this point.

Long story. I emailed a bunch of bike shops. They forwarded it to their network. Someone remembered seeing some kids walking with it, in fact they remembered it because they had built the bike originally. They told me where they saw it and I rode around a bunch of streets until I found it parked outside someone's apartment.

A person a few neighborhoods away saw a poster and recognized the bike. He called me for the reward.

According to the person who returned it, he was approached by someone in a parking lot who offered to sell him the bike for $300. He ended up buying it from the guy for $100, then searched it on the Bike Index and found that it was stolen. He then contacted me to pick it up. I paid him the $100 that he spent getting it back. Big thank you to bike index. As I see it, one of two things happenned here. Either the thief was unable to sell it because of it's presence on Bike Index, or the honest person discovered its status as tolen on Bike Index. Either way, I haver no doubt that I would not have ever seen my bike again without Bike Index. Thank you very much.

Someone tried to sell it at Capital Loans. The pawn shop ran the serial through Bike Index and it matched mine. They held on to it while the person that brought it in dashed out the store. Ian at Capital Loans called my number and let me know they have my bicycle.
