Designed in London. Built in Boston USA by Seven Cycles
Project Landrace Tupelo 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 by 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. Seven Titanium White-Paper
Landrace Tupelo Design:
Custom double-butted (in-house at Seven Cycles) US milled 3Al-2.5V titanium.
Each Landrace frame undergoes seventeen different alignment checks during welding at Seven
Lower bottom-bracket to reduce centre of gravity and increase confidence and stability
Steeper seat-angle than current industry standards reflecting modern bikefitting techniques
Shorter top-tube enables longer stem for better bike handling on and off road. And makes for a lighter frame
Conceived to be ridden with a shorter crank (165-170mm) to preserve peak-power, keep the hip open and preserve optimum pedalling efficiency as well as long-term health
Landrace Tupelo has been designed with clearances and braze-ons for 32mm tyres and full mudguards
Tupelo uses a 44mm headtube to resist torsional stress and additional braking forces
Disc-brakes are here. Used with 12mm thru-axle for axle-to-axle torsional stiffness and disc guide accuracy
Seven Matador Fork. Not many forks come with a five year warranty but Seven's does - mudguard eyelets, flat-mount disc, machined crown-race for accuracy, clearances for 38c tyres + mudguards
Custom double-butted and plain gauge US milled 3Al-2.5V titanium.
"Rode my standard Box Hill loop this morning with the temp shims and more thought to position.
Felt more connected and compact on the bike.
Fastest ride of the year, picked up close to a km/per hour despite crappy wet pot holed roads, a ton of traffic and a couple of nights out Thu/Fri."

"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."
"Very very personalised service. You arrive, they expect you, greet you by first name, have checked your file from past visits and set out very clearly what the process will be, what issues they're looking to address and how and they are happy to take the time to walk you through everything in layman's terms. Almost any professional service entity could learn a lot from how Cyclefit works. "
"Cyclefit offers an in-depth and highly personalised approach to bike sales. Whatever your riding discipline (for me it’s road, gravel and MTB) the team in Covent Garden will find the right build for you. All this is built around a pro level bike fit and detailed component selection. Add to this the important items often overlooked beyond the bike itself such as shoes, insoles and saddle pressure mapping and it’s a full service operation."
"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!"
