I live in a city on the east coast. I recently had my bike stolen. The frame was locked to a bike rack using a u-lock. They either picked or cut the u-lock.
My simple question is: where do thieves sell stolen bicycles?
More specific questions:
- If they sell them on Craigslist, how far away are they likely to sell them? Surely not the same city, right?
- Are they likely to wait a few months before selling them, in order to let the heat die down?
- I imagine flea markets and bike swaps are dangerous places to sell bikes?
- What are the top sites on the internet?
Any input is helpful!
