The Pro-Lite PBS Galileo frames are 100% carbon fibre construction. This means that there are no alloy lugs used in the construction and then hidden.
Many brands claim their frame is monocoque. In fact they are alloy lugged frames with the joints inside the tubes with material wrapped over the joint to hide it. The beauty of the Galileo frame is that it employs all the strength features of a lugged frame, without the weakness problems of a one piece monocoque frame. We join the frame using our own precision made carbon lugs and tubing.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous not worth the money
I have had this frame for 2 years 6 months, i had a creeking noise comming from the rear of the frame, this turned out to be the aluminuin rear drop out, his has three cut outs in and the there was a crack between the cut out, i contacted prolite but they said the warranty was for only 2 years and was due to normnal wear and tare, so i assume this normal for a prolite frame to only last 2.5 years. The frame is now unsafe to use. Do not not buy this frame

I bought this frame because I weigh 96kg and every carbon frame I have had has broken, 4 in total. Its now 6 months since I bought it and this is the longest a carbon frame has ever lasted. I have to say the geometry is superb. The only thing CRC need to do is change the picture as it does not do the product justice, if you look on the pro-lite site you see the 2 tone painted frame and this builds into a gorgeous and light bike

I have this frame for a year now and I am very happy with it, rides smoothly and feels very comfortable, you can build a very lightweight and durable bike around it. Highly recommended!
