3 ways to avoid buying a stolen bike
I found out about Shirley's story because I tried to buy her bike that same night. I got there an hour after she did and all the seller told me was that it was already gone. After that, I didn't want to risk buying a stolen bike again, so I asked some bikers from the online biking forum, the Chainlink, for a couple ways to avoid buying stolen bikes.
