Q. I have just bought a new carbon fibre bike and I am worried about it being stolen. Where do the police check if they recover a stolen bike? There are lots of registration sites on the web that charge a fee and claim the police use their database. Should I pay? Which do you recommend?

A. We don’t know of anyone who has recovered a bike through one of these schemes – it might happen, but we would suggest insuring the bike for its full value and keeping it in the house.
