    I heard there was a police run database that holds information on all stolen bikes in the UK.

    Does anyone have any details to put me in touch with it?

    I'm buying a beautiful trek 5200 ovlc and i just want to be sure it's safe.

    You can register a new bike on www.bikeregister.com - the police have access to this database of
    around 9000 bikes.

    thanks. i did manage to speak to an officer at my local station who said somewhere in the police
    system it's possible to do a search against their NIPS database (??).. but at 30 quid a go it's a
    bit pricey.

    so much for e-government.
