The thief was caught for having stolen property from a neighboring house on the same night my bike went missing. I contacted the police involved in the neighbor's case and learned they had my bike. I would not have learned about this had I not posted my Bike Index report on Facebook. translated from EnglishGeorge Bike recovered 2020.9.20

Someone saw the bike discarded in a bush. They checked Bike Index to see it was stolen and returned it to the bike shop where it was bought because there was a shop sticker on the bike. The bike shop contacted me to pick up. Although it does need some work I am so thankful to have the bike back! translated from EnglishDerrick Bike recovered 2020.9.20
