Frame/Serial numbers

I need to get my bike's serial number to give to the insurance company. On the bottom bracket there are two alphanumeric codes at right angles to each other. One is 8 digits (xxxx0000) long and the other is 7 (x00000x).

Can anyone tell me what these numbers mean and which one I should give to the insurance company please?


N.b. the frame is an aluminium Cube.

    Why not just give them both numbers as the unique identifying number on the frame? It's a hypothetical question ultimately.
  • Don't forget that some bikes, such as Trek, have frame numbers stamped on the rear drop-outs. :wink:
