Except for perhaps being accurate when listing for sale the year is unimportant, but you can go to BikePedia and input the correct name (NOVARA Aspen), then look through the years (1994-97, sold by REI) for the one that matches your paint scheme and equipment. For those who want more info see my tip: How to determine the year value etc of your bicycle

Manufacturers often use the serial to identify manufacture date. On yours , I don't know but its possible that the F means 6th month and the 9 is the year, that would make it June 2009. If you have a rough idea on its age, you could try different methods using the letter and numbers to see what is likely. There is also the chance that the serial means nothing more than the build number of the bike. Contact the manufacturer, they should be able to tell you.

Fuji bike serial number 1CFJ9D04032 is for what model, age, etc.

The model is printed on the frame. If repainted the serial number will not likely help you, and the bike value is minimal. For more info see my tip: How to determine the year value etc of your bicycle

Triumph bicycle serial number 963160, what year was this built.

The month and year of manufacture stamped on the SA hub is the easiest indication of age. Bike will be within one year of the hub. Raleigh-built bikes do not have unique serial numbers - the all-numeric ones restarted a few times.

HOW OLD IS MY BIKE Claude Butler B831624B ?

Typing in all CAPS is the same as yelling; you have asked the same question 3 times within the last 10 minutes.
This is not an instant reply help desk; it is a volunteer service that experts will stop in on and help in the areas they know.

As for the age of your bike; I suggest you take it to a bike shop that handles your brand and have them inspect it.
Since it is a UK based brand they are not typical here in the States.

I have a Ross Mt. Hood Hi Tech bike serial # RT6B0604 Would like to know what year it is

Serial number is often not helpful, but if you go to BikePedia and put in the brand and model you can browse through the results until you find the color scheme and equipment that matches your bike.
I would note that model year is usually only important when a buyer wants to know that info. Even then mechanical condition and appearance is far more important than age.

What year was serial number D00300254 made?

Each bike manufacturer has their own unique serial numbers (there isn't a industry standard like automotive VINs) so just throwing up the serial number is not verbose enough, the model would be helpful and you would probably need to contact the manufacturer for more details.

If you are just looking an age of the bike, you can post a detailed description and someone can give you a pretty good estimate based on the parts and the model.

Many manufacturers subcontract their bicycle manufacturing to large factories in China, India and Taiwan and these subcontractors are the ones creating the serial numbers.

Your local bike shop is the best place to get an estimate on the value of your bike and/or if there are parts that can be interchanged with your current setup.
