Stolen bicycles we helped recover recently:

Such a miracle! The thieves abandoned it two blocks away from my apartment. A neighbor spotted it, noted the cut lock, and reported it on NextDoor. That post was seen by a member of a bike recovery FB group, who checked Bike Index and found me. Thanks to all involved! translated from English

Someone messaged me on Bike Index! Unfortunately, it had been stripped and all that I got back was the frame. But at least it's something to build on. translated from English

Calgary Police recovered it. They said having it on Bike Index made ID’ing the bike much easier and was definitely the right thing to do. Thank you for that!! I feel like I’ve been reunited with an old friend :) translated from English

A gentleman texted me saying he purchased my bike from OfferUp. He drove all the way from his home to deliver the bike because I don't have a vehicle. I am feeling so much positivity about things and my faith in humanity has been revived by his and his wife's kind gesture. translated from English

Someone attempted to pawn it four months after it was stolen. The police saw that it was listed as stolen on Bike Index and recovered it. translated from English
