Hey... I picked up a Premium Products frame off craigslist the other day and I'd like to find out what year it was made (and hopefully the model). Does anyone know how to decipher Premium serial numbers?

No idea, might be stock cause sometimes it'll have some kind of indication in there. Like if it were the Deathtrap frame, it might be like PR####DT205 or something, PR for Premium, numbers, then DT for Deathtrap & 205 for frame size. but I'm not sure

Pics?
It would definitely help decipher if its stock or not

If it helps, I think I've got it down to somewhere in the 2009 range, judging by pics of other Premium bikes over on the museum. I'm pretty sure it's stock... any spot on the frame in particular you'd like pics of? Or just generic, here's my bike kinda pics?

a pic of the frame like you'd see in a catalog, picture of the dropouts, the chainstay/BB junction, and where the headtube meets the top & down tubes. that way we can see a full pic of it, dropouts & headtube/gusset marking, and the CS/BB junction to get an idea of what it is

Here's a collection of pics I just snapped:

D'oh, I forgot to do a full-frame shot. Sorry, I'll get one next time I'm outside. I'm pretty sure it's a stock/complete of some sort. Not that it matters, but it's got a 21" top tube.

Nice frame, I like that color a lot

i used to like pork till i found out it came from cops...

Thanks, I like it too. The forks are orange, which I'm not too fond of, but the frame color is great.

Ugg orange lol if they are keepers then I would raw them and either leave them like that or paint them black that would look good wit the frame

They're good, solid, Premium forks. Definitely keepers. However, I'm working a deal for a Standard Bash fork for it. If that falls through, yeah, the orange fork is going black. smile

Yeah, I was thinking it was a duo. The seat that came with it, though, isn't a pivotal and the 2009 duo came with a pivotal. And I can't find a good pic of a 2008 duo to compare.

That looks like it. I think that's right on the money. Found an old Albes page on it ( http://www.albes.com/browseproducts/PREMIUM-DUO-STOCK-BIKE-2008-Model.html ) which says it's full chromoly frame. 20.8", which is a bit short of the 21" it was sold to me as, but... it feels great when I ride it and I don't know how big of a difference .2" is going to make anyway.

Not bad, not bad at all. Thanks for helping me out, folks. smile
