Re: Ranking frame quality when used bike shopping
Yes, I bought a specialized stumpjumper fromm the 90's and I ran into the specialized sales rep at the bike shop. I showed him a pic of it and he said it looked like a fake. He told me to email the serial number. He looked it up and said it was real. I don't know if the data base it available to the public or not. You can try the net and if not try calling raleigh. By the way my first mountain bike was a chromoly raleigh from the 90's. It was a m 80. I loved that bike.
