Landrace by Cyclefit - A limited edition collaboration with Seven Cycles. All roads. All seasons.
A bike frame to fit into the categorical spaces - between stock and custom and road and gravel. Cyclefit has more experience fitting folk to bikes than any other company in Europe. They have drawn on their unique sixteen years of experience to make the limited edition Landrace.
"The remit for Landrace was to build a bike that owners find hard to categorise but would nevertheless be the bike they default to on most occasions"
The Landrace Landscape
The landscape is different now. Big manufacturers wisely retained the services of companies like Cyclefit to consult on fitting, ergonomics and geometry. With the result that with a few exceptions contemporary bicycle geometry is hugely improved. But bicycle companies are innately resistant to change, and it is precisely this resistance to change that presents an opportunity for Project Landrace to reflect the most modern advances and research into cycling biomechanics and materials technology.
The remit for Landrace was to build a bike that owners find hard to categorise or de-construct. But also be their default and unequivocal choice when they are riding out onto roads sight unseen. A bike to perform at the highest level wherever it finds itself. A bike that somehow feels more balanced, poised and efficient on any road at any speed. A bike to bridge the space between full custom and off-the-peg geometry. Designed in Cyclefit.
Crafted in Boston
Landrace is made according to our design and specification by Seven Cycles in Boston. Seven are the most experienced and exacting titanium fabricators in the world.
"I tried the shorter cranks today and I like them - it feels like it's less stress for the back and it seems easier to ride higher cadence. In the end I had a good Tour with no back problems. Thanks for your help!"
"Thanks very much for consultation last week - since I saw you I do not have anything like the same amount of pain I was experiencing previously. I am so much more at ease with my new positioning and my posture feels right now."
"I wanted to pass on praise for Jimmy, his knowledge, patience and ability to address problem areas I presented was exceptionally. As expected the bike fit was far superior to anything I have had in the past but most importantly I genuinely feel it’s improved my cycling in comfort and in speed."
"I had my second fitness test this weekend and on the first 8 minute time trial I'd improved average power output by a whopping 41 watts over the previous test. This is almost entirely down to the new position!"
"Hey Julian and Phil,
I hope you are both well.
I just completed a 21 hour week on my new 165mm cranks and I am in love. They feel so so great!
Thank you for all your help. I’ve never felt so comfortable on my bike before.
All the best,
