Stolen bikes at Smorgasburg, DUMBO. :(

I'm sorry if this is the wrong place to post.

I hope I can get help from the community.

We were checking out Smorgasburg in DUMBO, we had our bikes wire locked to a bike rack next to vendors. I figure it's in an area where people are around, where plenty of bikes are parked, I didn't need to U-lock it to the frame, now I regretted it. We filed a police report, hoping there's a slight chance they will find it.

I've been refreshing craiglists hoping the thieves are stupid enough to sell my bike as a whole.
I know its going to be a needle in s haystack, I want to see if anyone know where else I can look into, like places where stolen bike might be sold.

My bike is black IRO single speed with white bartape bull horn and gold color bar ends, black & white tires and purple front V-rim.

I think my friend's bike its a gray & black Nirve mountain bike.

You try pawn shops and other second hand shops? The local bike stores might be a good idea too

It sucks that this happened to you.
