  • Hi, welcome to bicycles. Is this the only picture you have? It doesn't show any badges or decals. That said, it doesn't look like a very valuable bike; is there a particular reason to have the model of this bike, as opposed to a replacement?

    It's terrible having a bike stolen. It's even more terrible when you find out that chances are low of ever getting it back. You do have a picture so that if the police do find it the bike you can claim it. I wish the best for you.

  • I’d get a new bike but this bike is particularly special due to the fact it was the first bike my cousin learned to ride on.. Feb 19, 2023 at 21:07

I can see a blue/turquoise painted BMX. The bike has grinding pegs on both the front and rear axles, so it was set up more as a "trick" or stunt BMX over racing or riding.

Curiously, the one brake lever visible goes off in the direction of the back wheel, and I see no trace of a front brake at all. There is also no detangler which means the bike can't do bar spins.

This suggests that it was not a "proper" high-end tricks bike, and was more likely a generic kid's BMX.

I'm sorry that your bike was stolen. And now you either pay for a replacement or struggle with insurance to get a payout which could end up being less than you need for a replacement bike, and may end up costing more than any payout by the time all the clauses are evaluated.

You can try sending the above photo to pawn shops in your area too. I managed to get a stolen digital camera recovered by doing this. Also doing a police report for stolen property will be required for the insurance claim.

  • Yes, i found the back brakes kinda rubbed against the back tire.. i tried fixing it and yea i pretty much said fuck it and gave up lol. The reason I don’t wanna give this bike up because it was the first bike my lil cousin learned to ride on. Feb 19, 2023 at 21:06
  • @MaplePanda thanks - not sure what happened there.

  • @CheyenneLouiseGamache sentimental reasons are a totally valid thing. But don't dwell on what-was when you can go make some new memories too. Take lil'cuz to a MTB space and make some more memories.
