How to get from A to B as quickly as possible? Good question; a good answer: use a Pro-Lite Time Trial frame. Why? Because we have designed and developed many different frames for both national and professional teams around the world, who never seem to produce the same size of rider more than once.
The point is that the average rider is not a paid professional and can't afford to have a so called custom frame builder spend 3 months to convince you that you should pay a small fortune to have something made for you, that we all know is no faster than a frame using race proven geometry at fraction of the price.
Linked to the fact we don’t just let anyone with a welding machine build out of Pro-Lite PBS tubing, we have created the time trial frame that is designed for the serious racer who wants to get from A to B as quickly as possible.
The Espresso is one of four frames that are compatible with the new Aerobuster system. Thanks to this standard, the Espresso can use either a standard 27.2mm round seatpost via a converter OR the super-rigid Aerobuster seatpost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Excellent value and small sizes
Fantastic value frame, bought this as a TT project and wasn't disappointed. Rigid and decent enough position even on the 49cm frame the headtube is nice and low. Have had this for 2 seasons and well happy with it in every way. As a small rider I find it very difficult to find small TT frames but this was absolutely perfect at 49cm.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous This frame provides for that need in the market of a small well designed frame with appropriate geometry, something the top priced carbon fibre bike frames do not offer.
Although undoubtedly value for money the frame has internal cabling and is difficult to feed. Don't get caught dropping a cable end into the frame as it will rattle & can't be retrieved. With some thought around the accessories (eg Carbon fork) i have this running at 7.7Kgs and it flows well!
