Thank you so so so much to Bike Index and to Officer Sanders. I was so bummed when my bike was stolen from my school, but thanks to Bike Index just the other day I got an email from a police officer saying he had my bike, and I'm going to go pick it up in a few days. A huge thanks to Bike Index.

Watson Bike recovered 02.12.2017

Someone in SF observed some guy trying to sell a bike that she was pretty sure was stolen. She was proactive and went out to talk to them (kind of brave I think!). The person ran off leaving my bike with her. She called the police, who told her it was hopeless to find the owner, so they were going to trash it (boo!). But she persuaded them to leave it with her, and looked up the serial # on the Bike Index -- and found me! I never thought I would get my bike back -- I had it for 30 years, so it is a sentimental thing for me. Thanks Alison, and thanks Bike Index!

Nancy Bike recovered 02.11.2017

Got an email from bike index that a similar bike was posted on Craigslist in a nearby town. The photos on Craigslist showed that it was clearly my bike. Contacted the police in that town. With the identifying information I provided, including serial number, an officer was able to contact the seller and recover the bike for me.

My stolen bike way brought to a local bike shop for some repairs. The owners of the shop looked on Bike Index and saw that the bike that came in for repairs was mine contacted me and let me know that they had my bike safe and sound. Without Bike Index I am certain that I would not have my bike back!
