Recovery Information

Recovery Notes: 
On 3/24/14, the CSBR received the following message by email: Hi! I just wanted to let you know that my bike that was stolen was recovered. Someone abandoned it behind a dumpster and a good samaritan found it and called the bike ship where I purchased it. I can't really believe and didn't expect it. Thanks for having the stolen bike registry up and I hope others are as lucky as I am. Best,
