The Portland Police located the bike after 3 months missing and used the Bike Index to contact me! Thanks Bike Index.

Toblerpwn Bike recovered 2019.3.19

After it was stolen at the end of last week, my bike apparently took a trip downtown Seattle. I'm told it was sold on the street to a guy for $150. The "new owner" was led to believe it was not stolen - but when he went to register it on Bike Index realized it was mine. Thank you Bike Index!

Lauren Bike recovered 2019.3.18

The Bike Index sent me a link to the seller who had listed it on LetGo. I worked with local law enforcement and we recovered it 2 years after it was stolen!

Christopher Bike recovered 2019.3.16

I visited the seller's home where I posed as a buyer and visually identified the bike, then cops picked it up and verified the serial number. The Bike index was useful to quickly share the information with friends and the police, and as a reference for myself.
