Have you ever seen/heard of this brand?

Hi Guys.

I just saw a bike in a surplus (I know I know i should just buy from a LBS but my curiosity just got the better of me )and I'm wondering if any of you guys have ever seen or heard of this bike brand "CRETEIL".

I already checked the internet and didn't find any relevant results other than a place in France. So I'm hoping some of you guys can help me with any kind of info.

Anyways Thanks in advance.

Nope. You usually get what you pay for so if it is seemingly inexpensive set your expectations at that level.

More close up pictures of the components (derailleurs, shifters, brakes, wheels) will help us identify if it's a really cheap bike or not.

it's a Taiwan made Hydroformed aluminum frame bike, the brand is the store brand of the Importing seller's ..

Now, Most brands are all painted on at a very few huge factories, Order enough units and they will apply Your Name.

The STI shifters are lower end (or at least have that design), the crank looks generic and if I'm not mistaken, the fork looks just like an aluminum Venzo (read: cheap).

I'd buy it for the frame if it were dirt cheap enough.
