LANDRACE Siegfried & Vita

Siegfried & Vita are rooted in Bloomsbury (named after Siegfried Sassoon and Vita Sackville-West) and exclusively available at Cyclefit Store Street.

LANDRACE is Cyclefit's own brand, dedicated to making beautifully functional bicycles in very small quantities, that exemplify
The art of buying wisely:

  • An absolute focus on quality
  • The bike is built of to a standard and not down to a price
  • The bike must be conceived to be resilient in the long-term to your daily miles
  • Test-ride, test-ride! The only way of determining if it is the bike for you - ride the bike as you intend to use it

Timeless Quality

Vita & Siegfried are handmade using Reynolds 631 custom-drawn steel in Cambridge, by a talented gentlemen called Paul at ARCC.

Steel is a wonderful material because it combines longevity, comfort and lightweight. It is also still the safest and most reliable material to build a bicycle from.

What our clients say

  • "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."

    Matt H

    Seven Evergreen SL

  • "Cyclefit provide a great personalised service that focuses on giving you exactly what you need. They are extremely knowledgable and friendly and no request/requirement is too difficult for them."

    PM

    Cyclist & triathlete

  • "A great service, full of personal touches as well as the "harder" scientific analysis of my position on the bike, which was also excellent. I feel more planted on the bike now, and came away with some really useful feedback from the session."

    Ed H

    London Dynamo Rider

  • "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."

    Self-confessed MAMIL

  • "The personal service from both Phil and Julian is second to none. They have such a wealth of experience in fitting that they can almost tell at a glance if something is just a little off. It felt as though it didn't matter how long it took to get the best position possible - even for an amateur cyclist like myself. Can't recommend them enough."
