Help! Columbus tubing sticker designation

I can make out Columbus on the left hand side, and Nivacrom on the right, but I'm missing the key part in the center.

Does anyone have any ideas?

If it helps, it is on a Miele. It's hard to approximate the year, as it has a mix match of shimano components, but if it helps; shimano 6400 rear der., rx100 cranks and front der., 105sc brakes, sora 7 speed shifters, dura ace 7400 headset. I'm guessing early 90's?

Thanks for your help!

Not sure, but according to the published chart of Columbus tubesets from the era, Nivacrom steelwas the material Columbus used to make EL, MAX, and NIVA, and EL and NIVA also in oversized sets...hope that helps.

Contact Miele and ask them. It's not a 'normal' Columbus decal.

Old fat guy -
I'll see what i can do. I thought that the company may have sold and is now under different owners, judging from the website it looks like they offer mostly hybrid bikes.

Yes but resolution is low so it's hard to read
