How do I read the frame number on my bicycle?

The frame number is marked on the side of the seat tube on a Velorbis bicycle. It begins with the letters WVEL which is followed by five digets and one letter in the end. As we use a strong impact resistant powder coating for painting the bicycle frames in some cases, it can be difficult to read the frame number. If this should be the case, we recommend the three following methods for reading the frame number: 

1) Take your bicycle into the sunlight and read the frame number from different angles.  

2) Put a paper over the frame number and use the back of a pencil to scrap on the paper to make the frame number visible.

3) Rub white fat on the frame number to make it more visible.
