I received a call from a pawn shop two hours from where I live. They told me someone brought the bike in to sell it. The shop looked up the serial number and noticed it was stolen, so they called me. They said it was a good thing we had it registered. We are so happy to have it back. Thank you!Gretchen Bike recovered 2019.9.8

A wonderful man found it in an alley in Uptown. He was able to match the serial number and contact me because of this site. I never stopped looking for this bike and am so happy to be reunited. The man who found it knew it was a special bike and understood what it means to have your bike stolen.Holly Bike recovered 2019.9.6
A local bike courier recovered my bicycle downtown and was able to locate me through the description I had on Bike Index, even though the original thief stripped the serial number off! Huge thanks.Patrick Bike recovered 2019.9.6
