    Where is the serial number?

    I just bought and built up a slightly used ~2008 CIOCC Mutant 850 carbon road bike. I want to record the serial number for insurance purposes but I can't find it. Any ideas where I should be looking? It's not on the bottom of the BB shell as far as I can see.

    Some serial numbers are on the head tube, around the top of the BB shell or the dropouts.

    Thanks. I took off the rear wheel and looked at both sides of the dropouts. I looked all around the BB and head tube and even took off the seat post clamp to see if it was under there. I guess it's possible that it never got a serial number. I don't see any place that a riveted plate might have been.

    It is usually stamped into the metal- not on a plate.

    The only metal on the frame is the rear drop outs so I guess I'll have to look at them again, more carefully.
