Hi. I'm sorry to hear that your bike was stolen.

Have you also tried posting about it on the Toronto Stolen Bikes Facebook page? Occasionally, local cyclists have managed to help other cyclists recover their stolen bikes by mentioning where they've seen their stolen bike, locked on the street.

When I worked at a TO used bike shop, we were required to see ID of the seller and keep a log book of bicycles we bought, and that book was occasionally checked by a police person who came in. I only recall a couple of instances of bikes getting back to their owners, but it did happen.

This was back when Igor Kenk was still in the business of 'contracting' bike thieves to get him inventory for his Queen st shop, so maybe many of the stolen bikes went that route.

I'm watching a documentary on TVO about Igor Kenk. He's moved to Switzerland.

Next time, consider registering your bike at either the 529 Project (I'm not allowed to post url's so google this), or the Bike Index.

When I was a kid, my dad would make me scratch my social security number into the paint on the bottom bracket -- supposedly so I could prove it is mine if it ever got stolen then found. One of them did get stolen and never found. There is probably a Schwinn banana bike out there with my numbers on it roaming the earth to this day...
