Stolen Bike - What next?

Hi All,

I am relatively new to Switzerland, but today my bike was stolen. I know I was dumb to only lock the wheel, but the false sense of security in Basel definitely made me careless.

Do you think there is a possiblity that I parked my bike at some private parking, and someone moved it?

Otherwise, what should I do? I will contact the police tomorrow, and I will also give Basel SBB bike parking a shot. I know there are some second hand bike markets, so do you think its worth a call/visit?

Best

Report it to police so just in case any crime is comitted with your bike you will not held accountable & in case it's found it'll be returned!
There are a lot of good new bikes and not expensive check Coop bau + hobby & Jumbo. If you know bikes very well than you can go for second hand shopping (if so check tutti ch and ricardo) otherwise i wouldn't reccomend it

For the next bike, lock it with a U- Lock ( like Kryptonite or Abus) to a Lamppost. If you have to lock your bike in the station area, choose an area
where taxi drivers have their holding place.
Replace all the Quick Release Levers with secure bolts.
