Kevin Bike recovered 2018.11.9

Someone bought the bike on the street and checked Bike Index and saw that it was stolen. They contacted me through the site, and then I met up with the person to retrieve it. Bike Index contacted me and were extremely helpful. I will be forever grateful to this amazing organization.

Eli Bike recovered 2018.11.9

My bike was found yesterday MILES away from where it was stolen! An angel was checking the bikes out at an Eco Thrift and spotted it hanging from their shelves. Before the individual considered purchasing the bike, they checked to see if it was on the Bike Index site.

Chelsea Bike recovered 2018.11.9

Neighbor 1.5 blocks away found it partially disassembled laying in her front yard. The carbon fiber belt evidently confounded the thief and he/she gave up trying to harvest parts! Found because of Bike Index listing! Thanks!!!

Recovered by local bike shop after being missing for 6 years, ID'd via Bike Index.

Another intelligent, vigilant cyclist searched for my bike on Bike Index after it was left behind at the scene by the thief of his neighbor's scooter. It was missing for only 5 days. My hero!

Mom Bike recovered 2018.11.2

Bike was bought and sold on Kijiji but communication from some fellow riders who saw the ad and my Bike Index post to myself and the the Calgary Police service.

Randy Bike recovered 2018.11.2

Tip from a neighbor. Paid the thief (er, guy who "bought it on the internet") about 1/10 of its value rather than involve the police. Still reporting his name and address, which I got. THANK YOU SO MUCH CARLOS AND BIKE INDEX!!!!
