Recent Reports

Welcome to the Chicago Stolen Bike Registry

Here's how it works...

1. Your bike gets stolen. Oh no!

2. You file a theft report, and let us know about your stolen bike.

3. We receive your report. After reviewing it, we will post it on the main page. We mainly review reports to weed out spam and make minor editorial corrections to formatting.

4. Your theft report, including your bike's photo, last known location, and date of theft, are posted on our site. Your report also goes into our searchable statistics builder and is shown on our report map. And, if you're lucky, someone might see your bike and contact you directly and return your bike.


Time is of the essence! Please post your report ASAP for the best chance of getting your bike back, even if you don't yet have all the information. You can contact us via email at info@stolenbike.org at any time to add to or change your listing.

Important: See Mr Bike's tips on I.D.-ing your bike before it gets stolen!

Search tip: Be aware indexing happens nightly so it's recommended that you eyeball at least the first 10 or 12 listings in addition to using the "search" feature.

Feel free to browse recovered bike listings for inspiring tales of bike/owner reunions.

The old Stolen Bike Registry (Jan 2005-Aug 2006) is still available here.

Basic Bike Info

Bicycle Type: 
Mountain Bike
Serial No.: 
GS11__
Size: 
Large Frame
Color: 
Black
Condition of Bicycle / Distinguishing Features: 
Bike is a full-suspension, downhill mountain bike. The main-frame is a 2013, the rest of the bike is mixed. Altogether, the bike looks nearly new and is in almost new condition. It is a VERY unique bike and I have never seen another one in real life. It is also a very large bike with 2 1/2" wide off-road tires (looks like a dirt bike from a distance). The bike is completely black and sits very high as it is a full-suspension. It is easy to distinguish from a distance and has a very thick frame. The name of the bike "G-Spot" is also very noticeable. The frame also has skull decals in various locations. The tires are Maxxis "High Roller," off-road wide tires. VERY UNIQUE bike. As I only bought the front part of the frame for replacement last year, I was not able to obtain the last 2 numbers on the Registration number.

I went in to say hi to my friend for less than 10 minutes and even left the door open so I could hear anyone coming up. The gate at the bottom of the apartment was closed. I wedged the bike into place on the 3rd floor and could see it from inside the apartment. The thief apparently followed me and quietly took the bike down the stairs. Upon coming outside, I noticed the bike was gone and the gate was left wide open. I probably missed him by seconds or mere minutes. The thief headed East upon stealing the bike as there was a road crew working at the next block West and they did not see anyone ride by in the last few minutes.

Recovery Notes: 
On April 20 2014 the victim wrote: I really didn't think I'd ever see my bike again but while on the 77 bus going east on Belmont on Saturday evening I spotted my bike attached to a bike post. I got off the bus and went over and there was my bike minus the lock, rear pannier and front light. The bike was unfortunately attached to a bike rack so I called the cops to see what my options were. They couldn't cut the lock but suggested I attach another lock to it and leave a note; and so I did. The bike is still there and the thief has not yet removed their lock. I'll be going by tomorrow to see if I can remove the lock tomorrow and will update. Thanks On April 21 he reported that the other lock had been removed and he has his bike back.
