Hi all,

I was just perusing some bikes in Ebay this afternoon and it occurred to me that some bargain bikes being offered for auction could actually be stolen. Has anyone ever spotted suspect bikes on ebay? What should one look out for? Missing seat and front wheel, for example? Decent bike being offered by a seller with no idea that its a decent bike?

Obtain the serial number from the seller and try plugging it into:

This

or

this :).

Any kind of obfustication from the seller should ring alarm bells.
