    ...a sort of related question here...but...with all the talk of stolen bikes, where do they all end up?

    I would assume that many get sold in the local trading post or whatever is around in the area, so if you are shopping how can you tell a stolen bike from a legitimate bike?

    With all these bikes getting stolen it seems like there must be some sort of black market for this sort of thing.
    I want to live.

    well, i can tell you from experience in my area, that about 95% of stolen bikes, end up on the lower eastside within ten minutes of the theft, are traded for a hit of crack, or sold to a pawnshop for about 10 bucks. The other 5% are bikes that are professionally stolen, ussually by uys ina van or cubevan. Those bikes , often high end , are sold in other provinces or stripped down and rebuilt to look like a diffeent bike.
    You ride a bike, we GET IT, no need to rant about it or look down on others....its JUST A BIKE...get over yourselves.

    WRONG drug addiction is a disease A disease is defined by having these three characteristics, an onset, gets progressively worse and ends with premature death.

    And this thread is 7 years old! The "you" you are addressing could be long gone.
