My bicycle was recently stolen, and the last place I have to turn is here.
Would any of you happened to have saved the pictures I posted in this thread: The Mysterybike
I wish to provide the police and local pawnshops with the picture/serial# of my bike. Unfortunately since that thread was posted I have cleared the memory of my camera and bought a new computer. what was posted was the last photographic evidence of my bike.
I know it is a longshot, but if by chance any of you has one or more of those picture please, PLEASE let me know. Thanks.

Bike thieves do suck. My family has seen at least three or four taken.
Where are you located? Major city? Small town?
I live in a suburb of Washington DC, and quite honestly, the cops never find anything. It might be different in a smaller town, for sure.
On the flip side, owner's/renter's insurance covers the value of the bike. I'm not exactly sure how it works but if you have insurance for owning/renting your house, it might be covered, with a deductible.
All I know is the expensive bikes of ours that were stolen, we got money back, so it's not a lost cause.
