Specialized Crossroads (2002?), Silver was recovered, also from Wolfpack Electronics. This retailer seems to be purchasing stolen bicycles without due care.
Another shop particularly work checking out is the pawn shop at the corner of Federal St. & Parkhurst. Someone reported seeing a number of high-quality bikes being loaded onto a U-Haul from there, with great alacrity.
If your bike is stolen, you should contact Bicycle Heaven ((412) 734-4034) right away. Craig there sees a lot of people who come by to sell used bikes and it is quite possible that the thief will try to sell your bike to him. He will help you if he can. You should also check local pawn shops and flea markets like Trader Jack's, Rossi's Popup Marketplace, and Wolfpack Electronics (6022 Penn Ave.). Thieves move quickly to sell the bikes they steal, so check as quickly as you can.
Another resource to report your bike to is the Bike Index. People refer to it nationally to find and help recover bikes that were stolen, when someone tries to sell them.
If you see any of these bikes please contact the owner through the link or other contact info shown below the photo.
