Anyone ride a Pro-Lite Cuneo? For £230-£250 they seem to be exceptionally light frames.

1.075 kg - 55cm ??

    I nearly bought on through C2W - Halfords were being particularly difficult to deal with though and would not set up a deal with the UK distributer. They are friendly guys and are happy for you to go up to Malvern, Worcestershire and try their builds! Frame looks good and the manufacturer can be contacted on skype!! Uk guy in Taiwan or Hong Kong from memory. They have a website for the distributer in the UK - trybike and the manufacturer:

    There are a couple of them I have seen in Bristol on the road and it looks like an impressive bit of kit for the price.

    Thanks GTV - I'm considering either the Pro-Lite, one of the Ribble's or the Racelight-T - the frame I've got is too heavy (budget Roadie) and too big (I bought a 57cm top tube at 5'10-5'11) - upgraded virtually everything else on the bike, so the frame's next.
  • Anybody been riding one and can give feedback?

  • I am considering a Cuneo as well. Steve at Pro-Lite has assured me that it will be plenty stiff enough for my 76kg. But I am still looking for fisrt-hand experiences. Anyone?

    The Kinesis Racelights KiC and Rc look good value to me, but the geometry looks a bit odd They appear to have very long top tubes relative to their size. Anyone got exeprience of them?

    I have seen a few young riders using them on some crits and road races. One of them I chatted too seemed really happy with his and said he picked his up on fleabay for £299 with forks

    If anything my TT seems to be shorter that I 1st expected, but this is not a bad thing. The geometry of my 54cm KiC2 is very similar to my Giant TCR (Medium), only the Giant isn't in the same class :lol: Read through my thread on my own Racelight...
