The serial number on your bike is crucial to have if your bike is ever stolen. 

  • Ride1UP Does not keep serial numbers on file. 
  • Please take a picture of your serial number when you receive the bike. 
  • It can also be documented on the owner's manual. 


While it can aid in recovering a stolen bike, the percentage of recovered bikes is low. The best practice is to avoid theft: 

  1. Always lock your bike with a heavy duty lock
  2. Never leave your bike out of site for very long.
