I recently purchased a used road bike. The original paint has been painted over and reflective stickers also coverer the bike. I am trying to figure out if there is a way to find out what company made the bike by knowing the serial number. Internet searches have yielded nothing. Is there a book of bike serial numbers? or a site that somebody suggests?

if its painted over, and its a newish bike, it may have a distinctive frame shape. i can spot my race bike and others in magazine ads when the decals have been removed, just from the shape. take the bike to a shop and ask around. i'm sure someone will recognize it.

oh yeah. if it resembles a Gary Fisher circa 2000 mt tam/supercaliber (genesis geometry) hardtail mt. bike, with or without a rock shox SID fork. CALL ME AND GIVE ME MY BIKE BACK!!!!!!!!!

i'm beginning to think every old bike with new paint has been ripped off.
i'm still going to ninja kick the person who is riding it when i see them, unless they give it back:)
