"Siegried & Vita epitomise the art of buying wisely"
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
LANDRACE Vita - elegant step-thru frame.
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.

The Art of Buying Once
The Siegfried and Vita have been designed to look beautiful but also to be utterly functional and reliable. Siegfried & Vita epitomise the art of wisely buying once. We have long preached at Cyclefit that cheap bikes are a false economy - horrible to ride, expensive to maintain and almost certain to let us down. In contrast, Vita & Siegfried are designed and built for the hard miles of commuting in all weathers. A handmade in England frame and fork, Gates carbon-belt drive is clean and virtually maintenance-free, disc-brakes and handbuilt wheels.

"Julian was very knowledgeable and explained the fitting process very well. He came highly recommended and i completely agree. Very happy with the service.
Instantly felt better on the bike. The pain i had in my knee went away right away.
"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."

"Honestly these are great (custom orthotics). My feet feel totally balanced and stable and I‘m not searching for the pedal when I want to push it. They’ve made a massive difference.”"

"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."
