After I posted this stolen bike on the Bike Index, a good Samaritan found the bike in a neighbors back yard, and he somehow found my listing on the Bike Index, emailed me, and we arranged for me to pick it up!

Shannon Bike recovered 3.12.2018

It was found in the neighborhood by someone who quickly recognized that it looked out of place and was stolen. He took it in for safekeeping and checked Bike Index, finding my entry. Thank you! We never would have gotten it back without Bike Index!

Kristin Bike recovered 2.25.2018

A bike store called me and they told me they had my bike. Apparently, a homeless person had brought it in for a tune-up with the lock still on and they suspected that it was stolen. The store looked up the serial number on Bike Index and called me. Thanks Bike Index!

Axel Bike recovered 2.24.2018

Officer John of the Seattle PD North Precinct recovered my bike on Feb. 14 -- What a wonderful Valentine's Day surprise! He was able to ID it from both the police report and the bike index report. Thanks so much to Bike Index and Seattle Police, especially Officer John, for the return of my bike!

Megan Bike recovered 2.15.2018

Awesome work by the Bike Index and Officer Sanders of PPB. Someone found the bike on OfferUp , contacted PPB and Ofc Sanders arranged to meet the seller. The bike is worse for the wear but definitely salvageable. Kudos to all.

Adrian Bike recovered 2.10.2018

I was told by a local bike shop to record serial numbers and take pics and upload to the bike index. The Bike Index allowed me to go to the local police and report my stolen bike with great accuracy. 2 days later, I received a call from authorities saying that they found my bike.
