Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Serial #?

Hey i just got a sweet (aluminum, i think) track frame, used, from an LBS. It looks really good, but the guy working there said they didn't know where it came from, and theres no stickers, but the serial number is still on the BB.

Is there a way to use the serial # to identify a manufacturer, or are they pretty much useless? How can I tell who made this frame?
