When contacting MrColumbia
Please follow these guidelines:
For bicycle identification
provide the following information;
Your name and brief description of bike.
Serial number including any letters that may precede the number. On pre-1950’s bikes the number can be found
on the frame under the crank. On 1950’s and newer it will be on the frame near the rear axle. On bikes older than 1925
the model number will be stamped or embossed on the name badge. This is needed for exact identification.
What type of information you are looking for.
Pictures. Without pictures it is difficult to do a correct identification
and often is impossible.
Giving a description is simply not enough. There are too many similarities in the thousands
of different models of Columbia bikes to do a proper identification without pictures.
If these guidelines are not
followed I may not get back to you. Due to the volume of requests I do not have the time to reiterate the above for
every email I receive.
