Zook,

by the serial number I would guess that your bike is a 90, does that sound about right?

Default another Ti

greetings to all fatcogs from the bavarian alps!
(hi scant - some days ago we already had an short mail conversation...)

here's my Fat Titanium - parts aren't final - still missing nice cantilevers etc.
Serial ist 004T02M - i wish it will last some more years and won't follow Nr.005's way to nirvana

i picked up the frame last winter, found the fork elsewhere und put it with some parts together which have been around in my house

i'm aware some parts aren't matching at all and sorry for my funny english

my homepage is still under construction, so be free to look to my small gallery at mtb-news.de (some more ti bikes):

Karl,

You have quite a nice collection of bikes. The teal color is one of my favorites, don't see it often.
Based upon the serial number, I would guess that your Wicked is a 1991.

The serial number would indicate that it is a M/L, which is generally an 18" frame in Fat sizes. The serial number is sort of puzzling, though, as the "P" in the middle is an oddball and not normal for Shockas. Interesting.

I measured the top tube and it is 22.5 inches which would indicate a S/M If i was looking at the specs. sheet correctly. and that is the serial number I checked it agian. where do you measure the seat post from?

The top tube length is measuered center to center parallel to the ground. I would never think to measure that way, so that would lead me to believe your actual number to be longer than you think. A M/L would be 23.3 inches, center to center.

Check the seat tube length, measuring from the center of the BB to the center of the top tube. My guess is it is 16".

Oh yeah, by your serial number, the bike is a '93. Interested in parting with it? :-D

Henk,

Is this the bike that was sold on ebay in June for $800.00 and located in Winchester VA? The seller gave a serial #033PSM which seemed odd to me. If it is the same bike I bid on it as well and would be interested in the bike if the size is S/M. Thanks.

I have a frame only, from ebay for $120.
Serial 871446F
Colour: (faded) flouro orange
Size : 18 in c to c

I believe it is a wicked fom about 1987, but I'm guessing here. Busy finding 1987 era parts to build it! I purchased it via San Deigo and now it's in Australia.

Default 1993 FAT ti (repaired by IF)

Just started the build up tonight on the following, (switching components over from a mid 90's Buck Shaver).

Frame type: Ti
Frame number: 013T3M
Year of manufacture: 1993
Frame size: M
Color: ti burnished / brushed (I believe)
Location: Mendip Hills , Somerset, U.K.
Owner name: John 'tangent' Williams
Photo: to follow

The frame has had a long life already 'across the pond'. It had just been repaired by Independent Fabrications when I recently acquired it. A photo to follow once it hits the (muddy) Mendip trails!

In August 2009 I discovered a crack running thru the IF repaired weld. Contamination seems likely to be the cause for failure...and ragged hard winters of riding! Looking into the possibility of a repair but it's seems tricky & super costly.

best,

John
