LANDRACE Tupelo - Shimano GRX Di2 Build

An all-road build for a ride across Wales

Landrace Tupelo GRX Di2

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.

What our clients say

  • "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."

  • "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, Hannah"

  • "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!"

    Bauke Mollema
  • "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."
