I set up an alert on OfferUp, contacted the seller when the bike appeared, then had the police recover the bike at the meeting site. It was very very cool. Following the recovery suggestions on Bike Index was a huge help! translated from English

Got a call from the police department a couple of days after marking it stolen and filing a report! It was super helpful for the officers to have the additional information from my Bike Index profile - photos, accessories, etc - to speed up the process of getting it back to me. translated from English
