Hi there,

Unfortunately I had my bike stolen from a secured storage center at the Hot Metal Flats apartment building. While I will go to them and see if there is camera footage inside, I was wondering if anyone had any tips regarding what pawn shops to look at? Or other used bike stores?

Pretty new to biking, so I’m open to all suggestions regarding this.

Bike: black Trek FX2

Serial: WTU111C0558L

Also on that page click on “register your bike” and then choose the “my bike was stolen” option.

Btw, after discovering this free registration I registered all 6 of the bikes in our house and it took 10 minutes. Majority of the time was spent on the floor wiping mud off the serial #s.
