Recovery Description

I viewed every day the update you supplied of Colnago bikes offered for sale on Gumtree and eBay. After touring my local bike shops and the Kassam stadium in Oxford where there was a car boot sale where bikes are sold by a number of vendors, I checked my update and my bike was shown on Gumtree, posted one hour previously. I contacted the police who were able to recover my bike really quickly. So my bike had stayed local after the theft and surfaced 10 days later on Gumtree. Thank you for that update. I had no expectations, but how wrong I turned out to be. Thank you again for this service. It still makes me sad to see how many people are having their bikes nicked, but maybe the thieves are not always so clever. Someone has to sell the bike after all to make it worthwhile.
