Had your bike stolen?
First off, post it up here in our Classified section - that way there's lots of eyes looking out for it!
The police often recover stolen bikes during arrests for other crimes. Unfortunately most bicycles found by the police have no identification whatsoever that can associate them with their original owner.
If you have the serial number for your bike, you can check the police database HERE to see if it is listed!

It's also wise to check the database when buying a used bike - ask the seller to send you the serial number before going to view the bike. If they refuse, well, what do YOU think? The last thing you want is to get tackled by some 6'2" guy because you're riding "his" bike!
