    What if mine was stolen on January 5th out of my backyard and I never reported it? The house was also egged, and my neighbor was egged. My bike has not been found.
    Thank you for sending out this community report. I hope others can reclaim their bikes.

    Sorry, I just realized that the comments aren’t photo-specific. The teal Electra cruiser-style bike with the white basket almost certainly belongs to LinkedIn. They provide that type of bike to their employees so they can move around their campus.

    My bike was stolen from my apartment complex, but the bike is not in the group that is posted. I’m looking for a red specialized mountain bike. Thanks .

    My bike was also stolen from an apartment complex, and isn’t here either. I’m looking for a light blue Giant Cypress Women’s hybrid bike in XS, purchased from the Off Ramp 5 years ago. Thanks!

    What a great service to provide. Unfortunately, my stolen bike (police report filed), is not among those recovered. I hope all the bikes get back to their rightful owners!

    Bike thieves suck. : /
