FOUND BICYCLE: Recognize this?

Recognize this bicycle? Andy found it “stuffed under the trees on the corner of 45th and Hemlock Way. Still has a lock on it. It’s awfully nice and I’d hate to just leave it out there, so I figured I’d bring it in my garage for now.” Andy has checked the serial number with police, and they said it hasn’t been reported as stolen; he’s going to turn it in to them if possible but for now is circulating the photo in case the owner is in West Seattle and just hasn’t reported it yet. If it’s yours, contact us and we’ll connect you.

  • A-Red February 18, 2021 (12:05 pm)  is a great place to list a stolen bike

      I’ve been checking the serial number there a few times a day. It isn’t listed among the stolen bikes.

    You can also find bikes on Bike Index that aren’t listed as stolen. If the owner isn’t found, post on the Facebook page Seattle Area Stolen Bikes.  As well, look for a bike store sticker, and see if they have any records on it.

      It’s not registered on Bike Index at all – a search for “all bikes” returns nothing with that serial number. Also searched by bike type  and there are many similar, but not this one.I just headed to that facebook page in order to post it (thanks!), but somebody beat me to it. Glad to see word is getting around. I hope the owner can get it back before buying a replacement.

    Andy it certainly looks like a really nice bike not ridden in wet weather.  The owner may have locked it up in their garage and simply has not noticed it missing yet.  Hopefully a good outcome will happen

    I’d call Trek Redmond as that is the most likely local store of purchase

      Good call. Turns out there are several Trek dealers in the greater Seattle area. No bike store stickers anywhere that I can see, so I started at the top of the list. Gregg’s took down the SN and my contact info, as did the Trek store in Tukwila, who said they could run it in a bigger database than just their store. The search continues…

Sorry, comment time is over.
