Ryan Bike recovered 4.12.2018

I received a text message from a local bike shop owner that he found the bike. Some details about the bike looked suspicious to him, and he found my entry for the bike here on the Bike Index. He contacted me, and I came and picked it up! Bike Index is amazing!

Juliayn Bike recovered 4.10.2018

In an unbelievable and amazing turn of events, a couple of bike index good Samaritans spotted my bike downtown, called 9-1-1, and the King Co Transit Police recovered the bike. It was relatively unscathed and in good shape. What a great community to tap into here on the Bike Index.
