JuJu Smith-Schuster’s Stolen Bike Reportedly Recovered

It sounds like Pittsburgh Steelers rookie wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster will not have to walk to practice much longer.

According to Rick Dayton‏ of KDKA, police in Mt. Oliver say they have recovered Smith-Schuster’s stolen bike. KDKA was reportedly contacted by a man saying he bought the bike before later learning it was stolen and it has now been turned in to the police.

“He’s supposedly coming to get it today,” Mt. Oliver Police Chief Matt Juzwick said.

At this point, the man who turned the bike in will likely receive two tickets for a future Steelers game from wide receiver Antonio Brown as that’s the reward he posted Tuesday after Smith-Schuster announced his bike had been stolen.

Smith-Schuster, who still does not own a driver’s licence at 20 years old, rides his bike to the Steelers team facility and around Pittsburgh as it’s his only mode of transportation., After his bike was stolen, he still entertained his social media followers with videos, memes and gifs related to him missing his two-wheeled pedaling machine.

It will now be interesting to see if Smith-Schuster gets an endorsement deal from GHOST-Bikes, the company that makes the brand of bike that the wide receiver owns.

    That’s cool

  • Mike Lloyd

    The power and allure of Steelers football. Ha!

  • Froggy

    Not since I last watched Pee Wee’s Big Adventure have I been this happy about a bike being found.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    2 tickets to a game, a week of primantis, a free bike, and a few other things according to Twitter offers.

    i wonder why JU JU doesnt dive at 20 years old…. now that hes making big bucks he may never learn to drive .. just use a limo service .. and thats fine he can use them to go our when he drinks (as soon as he turns 21) and dinners but if i were that rich sometimes you just want to hop in the car to go to the drug store or go for a pizza and you want to do it on the spare of the moment …. not wait for a limo to get there 30 minutes later.. sure gonna be cold on that bike in a month or so .. cool guy . hope he never changes and working with hines i like him and like his chances..

  • steeltown

    Didn’t AB ride a bike to camp and practice his first year…?

  • Conserv_58

    It turned out that it was Martavis’ girlfriend that sold the bike to the guy whom turned it in to the police.

  • Yeshaya

    Feel good story of the year. But I can’t help but think a few dollars on Uber or something for his commute wouldn’t break the bank

  • francesco

    Phew! Now Tomlin can concentrate on the Lions game.

  • Jerry Lynch

    He is 20 years old and rather well off. It is time for him to learn to drive and get a car.

  • John Noh

    I love that this was “breaking news” among the local media. Hilarious!

  • Anthony Palmerston

    To be honest, it’s refreshing that he rides his bike all over town. I think it says a lot about him. I’m sure he’ll get his license and his car as soon as it starts getting colder.

  • The Tony

    Anyone else see JuJu respond to Mia Khalifa on twitter? Makes me love the kid even more

  • Anthony Palmerston

    ^ Don’t you love comments like that? LOL

  • Anthony Palmerston

    I don’t know.

  • StrengthOfVictory

    Love that JuJu rides his bike everywhere. Very cool. However, he’s going to discover pretty quickly over the next few months that there are a few key differences between California and Pittsburgh.

  • John Volpe

    This kid a special kind of personality smiliar to that something special Hines had.

  • Aj Gentile

    A lot of people in college usually don’t have cars or drive

  • Rob

    Now i can rest easy

  • Ravens Team Gynecologist

    My fellow Americans, our long national nightmare is over.

  • thomas hmmmm

    Nobody was/is willing to give this kid a ride to work? What sh***y teammates.

  • thomas hmmmm

    I don’t think he has had much time this past year to focus on learning to drive.. Any ways its much better for him being that he is a professional athlete to ride a bike everywhere… It’s just not good for the dating scene.

  • Darth Blount 47

    Hey… that’s MY reference!!! 🙂

  • Darth Blount 47

    Hey… that’s MY line!!! 🙂

  • Sam Clonch

    Great time to be learning to drive. Winter slush seaon, lol! Maybe wait till the spring, Juju….

  • Darth Blount 47

    You guys are a bunch of line and reference stealin’ mofo’s.

    But you know what they say… imitation IS the sincerest form of flattery. I love Steeler Nation.

    I also can’t wait for the ‘Law & Order’ episode of this saga to come out!
    — “In the criminal justice system, the people are represented by two separate yet equally important groups. The police who investigate crime, and the District Attorneys who prosecute the offenders. These are their stories. DUN-DUN!!!” —

  • Stairway7

    Gonna need snow chains for that bike.

  • lonnie

    What their not telling you is that Harrison accidentally not knowing it belonged to JuJu twisted it into a pretzel.

  • StarSpangledSteeler

    The funny part is, all JuJu has to do is post on social media, “I need a ride, to and from practice, every day. Can anybody help?” And he would have a line of 20 fans waiting and ready to provide him transportation for free. They’d probably even buy his favorite snacks and drinks and have them ready in a cooler in the car.

    It’s not that uncommon in bigger cities with more transit options, and especially in California where weather isn’t a big factor. I live in the DC area now and while I live in the suburbs and still own a car, I take the Metro (subway) to work because it’s just easier than sitting in traffic and looking for parking. Also in major cities, you never have to wait more than a few minutes for a taxi/uber/lift.
    I would imagine he would get a car and a license eventually now that he is in Pittsburgh, but he may be so focused on football right now that he might wait until the offseason.

    Nice one! Omar Epps as Coach Tomlin?? 🙂

  • Obi Ryn Denobi

    Student parking lots are usually 3-5 miles away from your classes and never policed. Cars are broken into frequently and are actually a liability around campus.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    It’s official – I’m in love with this dude. Good player, sweet end-zone celebrations, rides around on a bike. If Bell leaves, I think JuJu’s my next jersey.

  • Darth Blount 47

    Who else? Lol.

    And of course, Tom Lister Jr. reprising his role as Deebo.

  • Axel

    lol………let’s see if juju will do the big shoe dance

  • Axel

    Surprised she didn’t have martavis turn it in, that’s about the only way he is going to get into a Steelers game

  • Axel

    Look at the bright side he won’t get pulled over and get arrested for having weed in his car

  • J.

    Anyone think that if Steeler fans find out who stole the bike the thief will get a beat down?

  • nutty32

    “Police in Mt. Oliver say they have recovered JuJu’s bike” – LoL. Some dude turned it in, they didn’t “recover” anything except some lemon-filled powdered donuts. Guess I should be happy no one got shot.

  • Applebite

    And a nice “stiff arm” to Mia Khalifa, too…

  • heath miller

    top athletes usually do and after you sign that pro contract .. if you dnt have a car its normally the first thing guys buy ? its cool .. just odd

  • heath miller

    not a doubt in the world .. hell id drive from florida to drive him to practice (if i could go in and stay and wait for him ) lol

  • heath miller

    lets hope hes that focused and he seems to be .. maybe he can hitch a ride with hines… lol .. jsut seems odd after he signed that big contract most guys would be at the car dealer 10 minutes later.. JU JU is different .. i a very good way … love the JU JU

  • heath miller

    no but lets hope the cops dont deflate the tires and check on there.. naw just kidding i love JU JU .. he seems different and i bet hines helped screw his head on straight ..

  • Steve

    Use to ride a bike all over Pgh when I was younger. Sure works the legs going up the hills. We lived on the Northside and rode everywhere. The only place I would not go on a bike was through the tunnels. Have gone across the West End bridge and six street bridge (Clemente) in the snow. Went to school in the Fulton Bldg downtown. JuJu needs to get a Bus Pass. In Pgh you can go anywhere..

  • Steve

    JuJu took Uber to camp this year.

  • VinHuddle

    Deebo as Deebo!!! Lol
