Good day list,

I picked up a bike recently, and have no idea what the frame is. Maybe some of you can help to identify this La Croix.

The frame is made of Columbus Cromor OR (the off road version), in an oversized variant. Chainstays are quite big, not unlike the ones seen in the MAX tubing set. So its probably specifically designed for some big pedal masher. The name of the frame is La Croix, the frame number is 17. Bottom bracket is Italian threaded.

Please note the 'design by La Croix' on the toptube, accompanied by the Europena flag!

Any ideas on where, or by whom, this frame could have been made, are appreciated. Or any other comments of course!
