    • Bicycle type.
    • Frame color.
    • Manufacture.
    • Model. 
    • Serial number.*
  2. Bring your bicycle and ASU ID card to any bike valet station or PTS office to have your serial number confirmed and to receive a sticker permit. 

*Some areas where a bicycle serial number is found:

  • On the seat tube, head tube or down tube. 
  • Under the bottom bracket, it is stamped on the frame between the rear stay, often near or on the dropout.
