Someone had the bike and got a flat tire. As soon as they took it to a bike shop to repair, they were advised to check the bike's serial number on bike index. That was how they found me. Thanks Bike Index! translated from English

I received an email from bikeindex.org that the frame was stripped and located in a storage unit that someone had purchased at auction. I then donated it to my local co-op so someone else can enjoy it some day. Thank you so much! translated from English
