Im looking at how wide the chainstays and the down tube are along with the word alloy. The down tube is a gusset to the seat and top tubes in fact all the tubes of the 2 triangles that make a bike frame are gussets to each other. picture of a gusset - Google Search Maybe its a fancy way of pointing out the standard design of a bicycle, I dunno. If its at your local walmart, bring a magnet and try to stick it to the frame then you will know for sure what it is. Magnet wont stick to aluminum.
