How would you build the lightest possible steel frame while making no compromise to performance or ride feel? If you were Mark Hester of Prova Cycles, you'd start with a premium blend of Columbus XCR tubing and Reynolds 953 tubing. Then you'd build a custom-butted carbon seat mast to drop the weight and provide unmatched compliance up to the saddle.  3D printed dropouts and seat lugs, with silver soldering to marry with the main tubes would follow. Finally, you'd finish it with immaculate paintwork and call it the Speciale. 

Each and every Prova is built to order, by hand, in Melbourne, Australia.
