    I recently purchased a Columbia bicycle from a Caber and I can't figure out what is going on with the serial number. Any ideas? Thanks

    Someone wasn't paying attention at the shop and placed the wrong numbers or was drinking..

    There was a bar down the road from the Columbia factory called the Slovac Hall. All the old Polish workers would go there at noon on Friday to drink lunch. Never buy a Columbia bike made on a Friday afternoon! Absolutely a true story.
