Stolen bicycles we helped recover recently:

I had 0 hope, zilch, nada.., but bike index came to the rescue. 2 weeks after bike was stolen, I got an email from a good samaritan that some homeless person dropped it in their front yard in the middle of the night. He emailed me, I verified my bike through the serial number. translated from English

The police recovered it and contacted me. The bike had been modified by the thieves but we used the info uploaded to bike index to identify it. translated from English

Thanks to bike index and the biking community of Edmonton. Helped that it was kept on the neighbourhood and some friends recognised it. Amazing 🤩 translated from English

The Edmonton Police Services could recover the bike because I reported it on the Bike Index as stolen. Otherwise, it could take much longer or maybe never be recovered. translated from English

Constable Cole from EPS stopped a suspicious cyclist and found our contact information through Bike Index. He called us at 10:25 pm and returned the bike to our home by 11:00 pm on the same day it was stolen. Amazing! So appreciative of this process. Thank you. translated from English
