LANDRACE Tupelo Shimano GRX Di2 with LANDRACE Gravel wheelset
Tupelo Ti built for the trails of Portugal
We have a a bit of a theme going on here with the Tupelo Shimano GRX Di2 builds, it is a very versatile groupset for road and gravel riding. Alan's bike has a Rotor chainset with 30/46 front chainrings which are a little easier than the standard GRX combination of 31/48. They are combined with an 11-34 cassette providing low gearing for climbs and the ability to remain in the larger chainring on the road on all but the steepest climbs.
The Handlebars, stem and seatpost are by Zipp selected from our build options and the wheels are own LANDRACE GRV carbon rims on Hopetech's Pro5 hubs laced with Sapim C-Xray spokes - hand built in London by Ed and Barna.
The titanium bottle cages are our new Landrace creations. This is a lovely balanced build and the feedback from Alan has been very positive on the ride quality and position. The flat pedals are used because Alan tore his Achiles tendon and had to have it replaced... so he doesn't like the idea of clipping in t his pedals at the moment!

"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. "
"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."
"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."
"I'm new to cycling so needed some support on finding a bike that would be right for me. Julian couldn't have been kinder or more supportive, he took time to find out what I wanted from my cycling and then looked closely at my physical structure to ensure that the bike is a comfortable fit for me. It really is a 5 star service and far exceeded my expectations."
