Stolen bicycles we helped recover recently:

Someone bought the bike & felt a bit sketchy about the transaction… he searched the serial number and Bike Index was his first hit. Contacted me and we got the bike back the same day!!!! I’m still in shock. Thank you for this service & to the good people out there. translated from English
