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.Patrick Bike recovered 2019.8.16
