After a 20-Year Wait...

Within a few days of my bike being stolen, when I hadn't tracked it down on Craigslist or spotted some shady character riding it around town, I resigned myself to its loss. But a story in The Local out of Sweden last week indicates that I may have given up hope too hastily.

Police reunited Karina Murén of Gävle in northern Sweden with the first three-speed she got in middle school, a bike that was stolen twenty years ago. Despite the bike's color having been altered during its time away from its rightful owner, the frame number was enough to identify the two-wheeler as Murén's.

Find and record those serial numbers, people, and never say "never" when it comes to stolen bike recovery.
