    Since it is easy to match with the correct serial numbers scheme, only Cervélo can for sure ..

    Re: S5 serial number

    According to some other posts about serial numbers Here's what I can tell: First four characters "SNS5": Model S5. Next three characters "D15": made in April of 2015. D = month 4 (A=1, B=2, etc..) 15= 2015. The rest: ?

    Re: S5 serial number

    Just to be clear, I'm not saying that the rest of the full serial number is suspicious, I'm just saying that I can't offer a comment on whether it is valid or not. I'm pointing out that you can infer the model number and the date of manufacture from the first few characters. I purchased my 2016 R3 this past May and the serial number shows that it was manufactured in March of 2015 (i.e my serial starts with SNR3D15.....) --Brad

    The "rest" of the characters is supposed to be unique to the specific frame. Nothing suspicious in there. As to the validity, that only Cervelo can confirm. Get hold of them directly.

    Thanks guys ! You can imagine what website (EB) I found this on.... I do own a 2012 S5 VWD and thought I get an upgrade. There are many fake frame sets out there and I have my doubt about this one as well.

    As well, be mindful that scammers are getting 'smarter' these days. Some of them manufacture realistic serial number stickers and re-use a legit SN. Imagine multiple bikes having the same SN! Always better and safer to buy in person.
