Stolen bicycles we helped recover recently:
I got a couple of emails via Bike Index that my bike was posted on OfferUp. In chatting with the seller, I found that the bike was only a few blocks away. I pulled up a few documents out of my email to prove ownership, and he returned the bike. translated from EnglishChris Bike recovered 2021.10.14
