Stolen Bikes

Theft happens and all too often it includes a bicycle. Bike Friendly Oak Cliff has dedicated a forum/page for all stolen bicycles.  You can see theft details on their site here.  Send bike theft details to

Here‘s an interesting story from the New Y0rk Times that details how using Twitter can be an effective way to identify a stolen bike, and it has a happy ending.

Be sure to record the serial number on your bike frame.  In the event your bike is ever stolen that number may be the difference in you ever seeing your bike again.  Dallas cops visit pawn shops routinely and always compare serial numbers of new merchandise with their database of stolen goods.  If they have your serial number and your bike ends up in a pawn shop they will find it.

Chris started riding a bike again when he noticed the Preston Ridge Trail being constructed across the street from his house. Since then he co-founded Biking in Dallas, has gone through countless Craigslist bike projects (some better than others) and can be found pedaling around town on a Electra Ticino with a camera in tow.
