In my mission to get my bike back, and I WILL get that bike back , I'm doing research on all the pawn shops in the Sydney area that deal with bikes, since many pawn shops don't. I'm hoping we can make a repository of pawn shops that are known dealers in bikes here. This one is for the Sydney area... feel free to make a thread for your particular location... I'll sticky it for you.
If you could, could you put the area first, followed by the name of pawn shop, the address, and hopefully any other details about the bikes you saw there (or any other relevant details). Any entries added here I'll put in this first post to make it easy to check.
So the next time you walk past a pawn shop, take a quick peek inside to see if they're selling any bikes. If they are, post it up here, even if it's the name and/or location. This will probably be a HUGE help to anyone who's lost a bike. Thanks!
I'll get it started.
