    Glad to hear you got your bike back, that must be a nice feeling. :D

    I'm just wondering though, how do you guys know it was the Ebay seller who actually stole the bike? Could it not have been fenced? Just doesn't seem like a junkie would take the time selling a bike on Ebay (in my experience most are stolen by addicts).

    thats how the law works - its up to the individual to prove they didn't steal it. the police charge you with the greatest offence then can lower the charge [think murder lowered to manslaughter] - you can't be charged with a minor offence then have it increased. in this case the ebayer will be charged with theft then a file sent to cps to show charge and reasoning etc etc etc

    Great result, did the cops let you go along to claim it or do they just get you to bid? Would love to see the little git's face when they get the cuffs out.
