Hlynur Bike recovered 12.06.2016

A member of Bikeindex.com spotted my bike listed on a site called offerup.com. he messaged me. My son and I set up a time to "Buy" the bike from the "Holder" of the bike in a Lowe's parking lot. we arrived early and staked out the setting. I went in the store to wait. My son messaged me when they arrived. I went out to the parking lot further away and watched the situation. When my son confirmed the bike was mine, he gave me the pre-determined signal. I called 911. he went inside the store to "get money from the ATM" to stall. I saw the people were getting nervous and getting ready to leave. I went up and confronted them at that point to stall them. The police arrived in about 8 minutes after I called them. The police then confirmed details and I was able to take the bike home with me :D The "holder" was released at the time. But he has other bikes listed for sale on the site. so avoid VirgilAdkins on the site.

Sean Bike recovered 12.06.2016

I have recovered the bike. I called bike shops around 92104 zipcode, and alerted them about someone who might try to sell a stolen bike. A homeless guy brought my bike to Mission Hills Bike Shop for repair, and the good Samaritans there recognized the bike and bought it off the homeless guy, and informed me. Feeling great. Thanks to the shop owner and the biking community :)
