CPD can't really do anything about "stolen bikes," they need specific info on specific stolen bikes. In fairness to them they showed up in less than ten minutes yesterday after such a bike was spotted, and even though the vendor disappeared into the ether the officer I talked to wasn't put out at all by that and emphasized that I should call him right back there if I spotted the bike again.

The press would need a hook to get involved. If a coordinated campaign can end up recovering a few bikes that would certainly be a good hook, so the thing to do is join the group and start trying to lay hands on some bikes.
Hello there,

I went to the Fox Flea Market in Rosemont this morning. There were several bikes there, but most of them were department store kids bikes or old vintage bike. I did see a couple of teenage kids try to sell a bike to a vendor and thought it looks suspicious. The bike was a blue Raleigh roadbike with a chrome headtube. It looked pretty nice.

I didn't see anything matching it in the directory.
does anyone remember the highlight colors on the black republic? i had one stolen that had green handelbars and one red and one yellow wheel. thanks
It did not have one red and one yellow wheel, I however am not postitive about the handle bars, but do not believe that they were green

Josh,
If you google "stolen bianchi volpe chicago" it's the first hit.
If it had been spotted you would have been contacted.
I had a navy blue Bianchi Iseo stolen from in front of my apartment a few weeks ago. I also had a tip from a craigslist post that it was seen at the swaporama, we went down there and were completely appalled and sickened by the gross amounts of stolen property, but didn't see my bike that day. If you ever see a navy bianchi iseo, I would be eternally grateful if you let me know, and I definitely want to help out the next time you sweep the flea market. 773-909-3236

If it is spotted you will be contacted-- thanks for listing it on the registry.
General FYI-- if your bike is listed in the Stolen Bike Registry it is not necessary to make a special request here to look out for it.
