Contacted local police to go for a meeting with an OfferUp seller. I had pictures, serial numbers and was able to retrieve my bike. Seller had a couple of other bikes, which I identified and notified owners via Bike Index. I hope a few more bikes are home and this launderer of stolen bikes is done.

A good bike samaritan found the bike and looked it up on Bike Index where he found us -- he dropped it off at a bike shop near us where we picked it up. We got it back almost a year to the date from when it was stolen!
