Guys turn out to be fattie, tattooey and fuzzy.
ok, handy info coming up!
Is there an easy way to interpret these serial
numbers (similar to a cars vin number)? Or is a data base required?
Knowing this may save a few emails in the future.
Yup - it's actually pretty easy - for 2006 and newer product you'll see a serial number that follows this pattern - XXYZAAAAAAA where XX is the week in which it was made, Y is the initial for the factory (usually T for Taiwan) and Z is the year in which it was made. Typically, anything later than the 20th week of that year will be product for the following model year.
If you ever are unsure of the year of a fork, we have a serial number reader in house we can use to determine the exact year and specifications of the fork.
im pretty new around here but i thought id post here :)
This an old picture of my bike a commencal super normal , running the old nuvinci hub. I've got the new lighter, smaller, better in every way version now.
This is the eccentric bottom bracket I'm running to avoid using a tensioner.
Pushing the hipster envelope i know :) At least it freewheels and can change gear ratio. :P
went up old buck to the top of neds and then down, then back up old buck, left at baden powel and down pangor.
at least the top third of ned still has 3-4 inches of snow.
pangors top third also has snow.
the large ice sheets on both trails have melted.
baden powel also has a fair amount of snow.
