Recovered when Bike Index and Revolution Bicycle contacted me with info of a possible match for sale. EPS and Revolution coordinated to set up a sting and recovered the bike from a known thief. Many thanks to all involved. Very impressed that this worked out! translated from English

Medium recovery 1257 Bruce Bike recovered 2020.1.19

I saw my bike posted on a stolen bikes Facebook page (that Bike Index recommended I join) and I sent my Bike Index link to the RCMP. The serial numbers matched and Beaumont RCMP found the bike when serving an arrest warrant! translated from English

Medium recovery 1256 Nadia Bike recovered 2020.1.15

A Good Samaritan searched the serial number, which led her to me! translated from English

Medium recovery 1255 Kaci Bike recovered 2020.1.7

Thank you Bike Index! A guy who got my bike in an auction sold the bike to another guy who (thankfully!) checked Bike Index after purchasing it. He saw it was stolen and was decent enough to reach out. Without Bike Index he would not have had a way of knowing it was stolen or finding me. Thank you! translated from English

Medium recovery 1254 Barb Bike recovered 2020.1.7

I received an email in the middle of the night from user Bryan who alerted me that the bike was being sold on OfferUp. With some help from the police, it was recovered in nearly two days. translated from English

Medium recovery 1253 Leif Bike recovered 2020.1.6
