I would say no looking at the decals they look like ones from MBUK or something. But the chainstays do look a little like the Elite/Aluminium O. Someone will be along in a minute to tell you if it is based on serial number though.

Aluminium O had flattened seatstays (IIRC) and a 1 1/4" headset - and would have had the earlier round lettering.

I suspect it's a vanilla Taiwanese frame, but that doesn't mean it's bad to ride - after all it was probably made in the same factory as all the Marins, Treks, Specializeds and Konas!

it looks in the style of an elite, welds and general build around the headset look like mine, the logos dont look right though......the fork isnt orange elite either, dropouts not the same and the area at the top of the fork isnt beefy enough......treat with caution!!
