photo Lost of a bike? This new website allows you to scan photos of a day's sales on eBay and Gumtree
A new website, Bikeshd, is winning favour among cyclists as a quick way to trawl Gumtree and eBay to find their stolen bike.
The site 'scrapes' photos of each day's London bike sales on to its home page, allowing theft victims to rapidly see if theirs is for sale.
Clicking on a bike photo takes users to the original advert.
The site appears to have kept a fairly low profile for a couple of months, but in recent weeks its traffic has grown considerably.
It's hoped the site will become another weapon in the fight against bike theft in London.
