Register. Report. Recover.


Keep your bike safe in the 529 Garage, the largest community-powered bike recovery service. Smith's Bike Shop is working with the local police and partnering with 529 Garage to keep your bike safe. When you purchase a bike at our shop, we'll automatically register your bike with 529 Garage. If your bike is ever stolen, you can alert other users, us, and the police with the click of a button. There's no need to search through your filing cabinet for your bike's information because we already uploaded it when you purchased it.
