Does anyone know how to interpet the serial # on the 2012 OM flyer? I just bought a chrome one and there are two serial numbers on the bottom of the bottom bracket. Thanks. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

look on the rear drop for a third. There are no codes in SE numbers. The one that says ICSE####### would be the serial number that was on the box.

I just checked the rear dropouts and there is no serial number present. Did they change the location of the serial number for the 2012 model year?

Pretty sure OM's are not numbered on the dropouts like other SE retro models.

I wouldn't call the numbers on the dropouts of certain SE models "serial" numbers. They are more like "frame numbers". More of an easy way for "collectors" to keep track of which frame number they have in that particular run.

The new OM's were never really marketed as "limited edition", so I'm thinking the need for the dropout number wasn't deemed a priority.

I would think the number on the BB is more for warranty and factory purposes.

Not to sound like a jerk, but why?

Nemo's right. The OM has never been an official limited edition bike. So the frames are not sequentially numbered in the rear dropouts like the limited edition bikes. BUT...

We did only bring 145 chrome OM Flyer bikes into the USA this year. And only 40 chrome framesets. And only 200 black OM bikes and 60 black OM Flyer framesets. So this was model was pretty limited. We're almost sold out at our warehouse of the chrome ones. So if you get/got one, consider yourself lucky.
