Pro-Lite Bella Frame

100% Hand built using exclusive Pro-Lite 7046 PBS tubing with carbon seatstays for improved long distance comfort.

The Pro-Lite range of alloy road frames combine Pro-Lite PBS 7046 alloy with Pro-Lite's proven Carbon Fibre technologies. Pro-Lite has now concluded a long series of tests on a whole new range of frame tubings in alloy and carbon fibre composites. These exhaustive tests have had the objective of allowing the design and creation of tubing sets that, in common with all the Pro-Lite product range, bring professional-quality products to the market at a price that most can afford.

Specifications:

  • Main Frame Material: Pro-Lite 7046 PBS aluminium alloy tubing.
  • Seatstays: PBS Carbon
  • Headset: 1 1/8" Integrated (41.8 Campy) 
  • Seat Post Diameter: 31.6 mm   
  • BB: English-threaded Bottom Bracket shell  
  • Derailleurs: Replaceable Derailleur Hanger designed to break in a fall protecting the frame from severe damage, Braze-on type Front Derailleur  
  • Brake Cable Routing: External
  • Weight: 1076 g (48.5 cm), 1198 g (50.5 cm), 1250 g (52.5 cm), 1278 g (54.5 cm)

Technologies:

  • PBS 7046 aluminium alloy frame tubing: PBS - Power, Body and Soul Alloy tubing is a 7000 series alloy tube, drawn specifically to give optimal stiffness and power transfer in each part of the frame, whilst providing a light and supple ride. 7046 alloy is 16% stronger and 12% lighter than 7005 tubing.
  • PBS carbon fibre frame tubing: PBS - Power, Body and Soul Carbon Fibre tubing is a carefully constructed and laid up carbon tubing and dedicated lug set, made specifically to create our monocoque Galileo frame. A blend of careful tubing profiles and consideration to the type and direction of weave of the fibres in the tubes gives optimal stiffness and power transfer in each part of the frame, whilst providing a light and supple ride.

  • Top Tube - 535 / 550 / 560 / 575

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by really nice light weight frame Light, stiff and fast. Builds up really nice for Junior riders with light weight Prolite wheels 05 July 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by excellent very good frame at a very good price as usual super fast delivery from CRC!!! only concerns are that the seat tubing as stated in the info section is the wrong size it was stated at 31.8! dont really know if its just a one off i very much doubt it but mine is 34.9 so had to send my seat clamp back for a replacement! also if you look closely in the picture the pro-lite logo displayed along the bottom of the frame is bent im assuming the person that setup the machine to write the logo was boss eyed as its quite embarrasing so i covered mine up with white vinyl! apart from those minors im very happy with the frame also get advice as to what headset you need for this frame as it uses a special type! 27 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quadro excelente Ótimo quadro, acabamento impecável, muito rígido e tem ótima aceleração, não fica devendo nada a muitos quadros famosos do mercado. 05 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by good to race Good enough for at least Category 4 racing. Very under rated at this price. 08 October 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Budget Frame, but Good looks I bought this frame to replace my De Rosa Wind since it matched the geometry very closely. It also came in at a fraction of the price of the Wind, so it was worth the gamble. Kudos to CRC for the excellent packing and shipping: I received this in meticulous condition, by far my best experience with frame imports to date. Apart from an issue with the bottle cage thread on 1 of the screws on the downtube (resolved by re-tapping a new thread), the rest of the components fitted perfectly. I also used my previous carbon fork and had no issues fitting it to the Pro-Lite. You can feel that the rear carbon stays dampen a bumpy ride and in general the frame is very responsive. The frame (Gloss White) has stunning good looks and the guys at the LBS all think this carries a high price tag. The frame has a 2 year warranty which I hope I will never need to resort to. Highly recommended at the price. 27 December 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by This Pro-lite 'Bella' (beautiful in Italian) is a beautiful build and the quality looks fantastic with the light weight aluminium grade. Carbon rear is also a premium touch. One issue is guys don't like riding a frame that says 'Bella' as a model so the frame is limited more for the female market however it's not women specific geometry. Perhaps some guys would be comfortable with this. Don't know what Pro-Lite were thinking with model naming. Maybe its a bit like not considering calling a 4wd a Pajero in south america if you get the idea. MAybe a sticker or paint work may make this a good deal. If it was called Brutus or Thunder then I would give it 5 stars! 13 December 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rapid Built this up with prolite forks, prolite bracciano wheelset and carbon finishing kit. Excellent value for money frame that is a great sprinter and a good climber. Quite stiff and some road rumble but smooth enough for lonegr rides. 25 August 2012

Answer: 
Yes; the Bella frame runs a standard 130mm rear dropout spacing, so the RS31 wheels with anything up to a 700x25 should be fine.
