Stolen bicycles we helped recover recently:
A deputy with the King County Sheriff's Dept. found it outside of a deli in Georgetown on his way to work. He picked it up and found me via Bike Index! It just proves that there are still kind people out there and that Bike Index works. translated from EnglishCarissa Bike recovered 2021.1.21
A good samaritan found the bike on Facebook Marketplace, looked up the serial number on Bike Index while taking the bike for a test ride, and contacted me. I confronted the culprit with SFPD support and recovered the bike. translated from EnglishLogan Bike recovered 2021.1.20
An amazing person named Kristina purchased the bike and checked to see if it was previously stolen and got in contact with me to return it. translated from EnglishNicholas Bike recovered 2021.1.20
A member of my police department found it 4 days after it was stolen from my garage. Because I had the serial, reported it, and registered with Bike Index, they were able to look it up. We have no doubt that Bike Index was a huge reason I've gotten my bike back so quickly :) translated from EnglishSuzanne Bike recovered 2021.1.19
