Welcome to the Stolen Bike List forum

If you have a bike stolen, list it up here.

Please provide as much detail as you can. The more info, the more chance of catching the crooks!! Pics, VIN numbers, details of stolen location, etc.

You can not reply to any of these posts to keep the listings clean also.

The process of bike theft

There are 5 aspects to having a bike stolen

1: Prevention
You've all read about what options are available to secure your bike so I won't bore you with more but even the best optiosn can and have been overcome by determined crims. You can read plenty of stories about how bikes were dragged over cars and chains cut through and dogs poisoned so the best you can hope for is that the crims on the day find your bike in the too hard basket.

2: The theft
The actions taken by the thieves are again multiple and they are not stopped unless there is some interruption to the crime. Either someone sees and acts on it (the owner, a passer-by or the police, etc) or a process is activated that scares them off, like the chain being too hard to cut or a security light going on or an alarm being tripped.

3: The immediate response
When the theft is noticed often the owner will report it to the police but due to lack of interest they may try to take the recovery into their own hands. In this case recovery is only successful if the owner can find out where the bike is and is prepared to take the necessary actions to get it back. There is a big element of personal risk and anyone proposing this should take the possible repercussions of the act into consideration. That includes police, legal AND most importantly, family.

4: The long-term response
This is what you do when there is no other resource to pursue and includes the advertisement of the theft on various forums, Facebook and databases. Social media is a short term (but very effective) option only because the storage of the data is linear and will rapidly get pushed down the list. The database is the only option that offers permanent historical record that is easily retrievable.

5: Long term ownership
It may be that eventually you wouldn't want your bike back anyway. As much as you love it now, in 5 years it may come back to you as a basket case that would cost you more to fix it than buying a new bike. But that is a very personal situation and only you can decide how you feel about that.

Posting this info can help recovery and even come up with pictures of the thieves. I started this thread over a year ago with a rash of thefts and some were recovered because of this thread and thefts have been vey low due to exposer and knowledge of this problem now.

Posted on TT under local and regional too and face book and many Hare Scramble forums.
I recovered one of mine a year after it was stolen 15 years ago by watching the local paper dirt bikes for sale.
