Bike Registration that Works


Gentleman purchased the bike from the street and brought it into Huckleberry Bicycles. They recognized it from and called me in. I was able to recover this bicycle that was gifted to me from my wife as a wedding present.

I was told by a used bike shop when calling around after my bike was stolen to register with you. Local police checked the Index and I recovered my bike within 13 hours. Thank you guys so so much I love you!!! I'll be telling all my friends to register with Bike Index!

Schuyler Bike recovered 08.30.2015

Thank you, Bike Index! A Bike Index user contacted me because they'd seen my green Gunnar, twice, in Columbia Heights and had called the police both times. The police did nothing. Last night I went to Columbia Heights myself and found some guys trying to sell my bike on Fourteenth street. I went into a nearby pharmacy to call 911 and coincidentally, a police officer entered the store while I was calling. Accompanied by the officer I found the guys with my bike and took it back from them.
