LANDRACE bikes are created for normal folk to enjoy extraordinary adventures.
LANDRACE are bikes created for normal folk to enjoy extraordinary adventures.
The simple act of riding a bike is one of the greatest gifts we can bequeath to our fragile planet – whether that is a commute to work or a trip across an entire continent.
We traverse the world suspended above its surface by few square centimetres of tyre – it therefore seems eminently sensible to make sure that every aspect of your bicycle has been meticulously planned by people with unique expertise and passion.
Conceived by Cyclefit pioneers Julian Wall and Phil Cavell, LANDRACE bikes and wheels are the product of their combined decades of of bike-fitting and designing thousands of flawless, custom bikes for their discerning clients.
Phil and Jules have more experience designing frames and fitting bikes than any other bike designers on the planet.
The other pillar of LANDRACE is the intention for you to have the biggest global tyre-print for the smallest global footprint - 1% of LANDRACE frame and wheels sales are donated to trusts and charities fighting to save our planet, to help sustain the beautiful places that we all choose to ride in.
The LANDRACE Tupelo
Our first frame is the Tupelo, it is made from butted 3AL-2V titanium and is fitted with a Columbus Futura Gravel Disc fork. We built the Tupelo from titanium, it gives you a lovely smooth ride and will last forever. A bike with versatility is what we wanted, an N minus 1.
The Tupelo can be used for general road riding, fitness, endurance, commuting, its up to you; the frame will take tyres up to 35mm wide so it can be used for gravel riding too, or if you like riding in inclement weather mudguards can be fitted with up to a 32mm tyre. You can pretty much take this bike anywhere.
We have added an extra bottle cage for those longer adventures to store spares or extra fluids. Add a pair of aero extensions and you could ride the Transcontinental Race or a pair of gravel tyres and ride King Alfred's Way, you have options.
The handling is on the stable side, but not sluggish and wallowy like many gravel bikes; enough to dive in and out of corners on roads or single track, the low bottom bracket makes descending hills and mountains a breeze.
The Tupelo is available in six sizes - as a frameset, or as a complete bike. Our complete bike build options are available to viewHERE.
LANDRACE wheels - we build our own wheels in-house find out more about them HERE
