The Tupelo frame is designed for road and light gravel rides
Nick wanted a comfortable bike to keep him fit and something he could ride across Wales on one of his adventures. We kept the build simple with the alloy cockpit and Hope 20FIVE wheels and after his test ride Nick decided on Shimano's electric gears as the shifting is so sharp and quick. The combination of the 11-34 cassette and 48/31 chainrings gives him nice low gears for easy rides.
The drop from saddle to the bars is only 5cm but the frame design provides a nicely proportioned bike without the need for lots of spacers under the stem. This frame is the medium/large which equates to approximately 55cm, saddle height is 74cm.
Shimano GRX Di2 groupset, precise shifting and a modest gear range
Hutchinson Overide tyres in 35mm width, smooth on asphalt with grippy shoulders for the dirt
Clearance for up to 38mm tyres or 32mm with mudguards
Columbus Futura Gravel Fork - the high quality carbon compliments the frame
Deda Elementi cockpit - understated Italian quality and nicely shaped handlebars
Neat rear drop-outs and internal cable routing. 34 tooth cassette for steep climbs.
The Shimano GRX hoods provide good grip and safety over rough terrain
"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. "
"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,
National Champion / Professional Bike Rider
"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."

"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!"
"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."
