    What? They wont fix your wheel without the serial number of the bike??? Seems odd. Is the wheel unique? Maybe similar to one from a bike that they want to recover? Go to another bike shop.

    Serial sticker?

    What happened to frame stamping? I'm sure my old 6500 was stamped..

    My Fisher is stickered and stamped (same #, but there are three different numbers stamped). It does say it voids the warranty to remove the sticker.

    Beyond that, it seems pretty s h i t t y to actually deny service, especially considering that the number is stamped on there too.

    I guess it's a reason to buy bikes online when the big boys and LBSs have policies like that.

    If they do just need the number, test ride a new one. Look at the bottom of the frame and match the stamped number to the stickered number. That way you will know which stamped number is the serial number they need.

    Why would you remove the sticker in the first place? I can't see any advantages in doing it...

    This all sounds a little fishy to me.

    I'm pretty sure Trek voids your warranty if the serial sticker is removed.
    When all else fails, read the directions.
