    This is the most important thing you can do right NOW. We learned the hard way.

    WRITE DOWN YOUR SERIAL NUMBERS! You have no recourse to recover your property from pawn shops or from the police unless you have serial numbers. Trust me on this one. Jason, please let everyone know.

    Also, don’t give up looking on Craigslist or Ebay. These guys that fence property will sit on these bike for a year and then post them for sale.

  • Jason Roberts says:

    Thanks MTB-girl!

    Also, Hollis wrote this post and setup the page, so she deserves the credit :-)

    Great idea for a website. Don’t give up hope. My bike was stolen from my yard when someone cut the lock that chained it to the fence. My boyfriend spotted someone riding the bike a few days later three blocks from my house and after a short confrontation I got it back!

  • Switchinggearscyclery says:

    Howdy,
    We are looking for a Dallas/TX, gov/police sight to check if a suspicious bike might be stolen. Anyone have any links?

  • stuart says:

    I don’t think there are any official government sites for stolen bikes but you should definitely check here: http://www.nationalbikeregistry.com/

  • bonsayok says:

    great site

  • My kids bike was stolen last week from right in front of my house with the lock on it, and yesterday we stopped a kid from taking and riding off with other sons’n bike talking about he was gonna call the cops on me. I said do it so I can report you. What do I do to report it?

  • Neitasschia: sorry for the late reply here. Definitely report the incident to the police so there’s a record of it in their system. It helps to track trends and that information goes to our council men and woman. Second, you can send over a picture and description of the bicycle and we’ll make a post on our site. Send it to jrbraddick@gmail.com

  • Moses says:

    Well kids, if you get your bike stolen in the little town, chances are it has been transfered to bailer, crushed to a compact size, and melted down for recycling or sold for scrap. Isn’t that what all of you hippies are for anyway? Recycling and redistributing wealth? Your bike wasn’t stolen, it was shared with the community. Consider yourselves altruists, not victims.

  • P.Erickson says:

    Moses: sounds like someone is still cranky over not getting into the promised land. Perhaps another 40 years wandering the desert would improve your attitude.

  • I don’t have a bike currently but was told when I was in college to lock my bike up with a chain/cable and a U lock. They said bike thieves usually have the tools to deal with one, but not both. Think that still holds true for Dallas?
