Verdict: 9/10 Beautifully made and thought-through frameset that should fit perfectly and last a lifetime
The LANDRACE Tupelo, is made from butted 3AL-2V titanium and is fitted with a custom painted Columbus Futura Gravel Disc fork.
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.
