If you have any info contact James.
Here's some advice for all local bicycle owners. If you currently do not have a recent photograph of your bike(s) and the serial number(s) recorded you should take a few minutes out of your day and do so. Far too often victims of bike thefts do not have a recent photo or any at all of their ride. Vague descriptions and stock photos of a bike which some what resembles yours is not the way to go. PHOTOGRAPH YOUR BIKE TODAY!
In recent weeks there's been an abundance of bike thefts reported in Miami. Unfortunately most of these thefts are being reported to us or on Facebook, Twitter, etc and not to the police. While I recommend using all of these media outlets to get the word out, it is still very important to call the police and file a report. Even if your bike is worth just $75, the police need to be made aware of this bike theft epidemic.
Also, if your bike has been stolen you should check Craigslist and pawn shops in the area to see if someone is selling your property.
The more information victims share regarding their loss (how, when, where), the better it may help other cyclists in the community not succumb to thieves.
