I PARKED MY BIKE IN GARAGE AS I HAVE BEEN DOING REGULARLY FOR PAST 7 MONTHS. LAST I USED IT WAS ON TUESDAY NIGHT (6/10) AND ON SATURDAY (6/14) MORNING BIKE WAS NOT THERE.
On 6/21/14, the CSBR received the following email: I would like to thank you for having this website up and running which maintains a list of stolen bikes in Chicago. Due to this website my stolen bike has been recovered. The person who stole my bike went to a neighborhood bicycle store - Comrades on Chicago and Wolcott Ave to sell it. Employees at the were vigilant and perceived the bike and person trying to sell seem to be out of the place, then he looked up online and found that it is a stolen bike and called police on him. The guy left the bike in the store and ran away. Posting had my info and contacted me & bike was recovered.
