REGISTRATION THAT WORKS! - Our partners at Bike Index have created the ultimate national database. When your bike is marked stolen thousands of people are instantly alerted via twitter and Facebook. Buyers of used bikes can quickly check the bike they are considering to see if it is reported.
EVERYONE WINS BUT THE THIEVES!
DO NOT WAIT ! - Our system allows you to edit your information as you get it. If you have the make and/or model, color and a photo then report the theft to us NOW. If you don't have a photo find a stock photo online, you can always add personal photos when you find them.
DON'T BUY STOLEN BIKES - It's simple economics, people sell stolen bikes because it is profitable, meet some of the known culprits. Possession of stolen property is a crime. Don't get caught in the middle, report suspicious sales immediately.
APPRECIATE OUR WORK? - We have a few ways you can help support our mission. Send us a few bucks, buy a t-shirt, or volunteer your time. Our active volunteers are spending their own money to find stolen bikes and we are streched to the limits. We don't have big grants or deep pocket sponsorship so every dollar counts.
ANY PRESS IS GOOD PRESS - From the first day, the Stolen Bikes Nola team has been controversial, outspoken, and VERY EFFECTIVE. Take a look at how the press has covered our victories, our protests, and our advocacy.
WE CALL THEM "RAPTURE BIKES" - Bikes that have been lost, the grief of the owner, intense as it was, is over. The bike is now just a fond memory buried away and forgotten. Then as if from no where, it lives again in our inventory, just waiting to be reunited with it's loved ones.
