You use to be able to register your bike at local police departments. It was not a requirement, it was to notify you if they recovered your stolen bike.

There is no law that I'm aware of which requires anyone to register a non-motorized vehicle in the United States.

Most places in the United States do not require you to register a bicycle. In certain towns, that do require registration, it's a matter of going to the local municipality and providing the serial number that is located on the underside of the crank.

It's a good idea to copy this number and save it in a safe place. If your bike is stolen, you can report it to the local police department, pawn shops, etc. Some people have recovered their stolen bikes by posting a picture and a stolen comment on Craig's list. Other Craig's list buyers will sometimes notify the poster of a for sale listing of their bike on the list.

Best thing to do is buy a really good lock and keep it locked up.

I want to order the Fuji SunFire. Will the bike have all Fuji specified original parts and not cheaper less quality parts? I'm looking for a full suspension 27.5 - carbon or TI. I haven't seen either on your site. Please advise. Note I have purchased two bikes from you. How to search your entire site for particular bicycles? Ctrl-F just searches a page NG How to do a search on your site for particular bicycles? I don't see a search box for your entire site. Ctrl-F just searches a particular page. NG looking at the Fuji Sunfire 2.0 list $599 (compare at $1400) I've seen the 2.0 cheaper at my LBS. Is this a different 2.0? $1400? to high! I'm hearing from my LBS, that the Top end Mountain Bikes, have a recent history of frames breaking and welds coming apart...Any truth to this? I'm keeping word from my LBD that the Mountain bikes frames have a history of breaking and wields coming apart. Anyone have any proof of this? I bought a Gravity 29er hardtail with generally xt grade components. First bike the rear wheel rode closer to frame on the non drive side. Sent first bike back and got another slightly different Gravity 29er hardtail a little bit of upgrade on rims and shock. Bike #2 has the exact same problem. It is not dishing or truing of the rim. When I put a 2.2 tire on there is only 1/8" clearance from tire to frame on non drive side and if wheel looses true at all it will rub. I think that if I get two bikes with the same problem that there must be an manufacturer defect that wasn't caught. I have ask Larry at bike direct if there is a defect with this bike and have received no answer. I do like Larry though and he has been very helpful, but I want an answer. Anyone had same problem? my wife inseam is 27inches The bike size is 15 or 17. I assume it would be 15ladies.???? The math seems funny when you say you have sold more than 100,000 cycles in 15 years and also say that you have sold thousands per week. If you were selling 2,000 cycles a week you would have 100,000 cycles sold per year?
