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 English

Thanks to Bike Index, a local bike shop called me to tell me that someone brought in the bike for servicing. The shop found my listing and gave me a call...thanks Bike Index!!!! translated from English

It was sold by the person who stole it. The buyer was a top man and checked Bike Index to notify us that he had the bike. translated from English
