Smoothly and quietly riding down the street- only listening to the sweet sound of the noise on the road. Alone the advantages of the belt drive system can make this experience come true. By applying the revolutionary Carbon Drive Technology made and developed by Gates™, carbon fibres are embedded in a polyurethane material, thus enabling the belt drive to outplay the chain. The belt’s superior technological advantages - low noise and zero maintenance - are truly irresistible. Extensive testing of the belt drive has shown that due to the applied high-strength carbon fibre, there is not even the slightest evidence of stretching, which forces you to replace drive components and is commonly observed when using standard chains. Consequently, the belt drive lasts much longer than standard chains and has an expected running performance of approximately 20,000 km (13,670 Miles). All rear-pulleys are exclusively manufactured from hardened steel to guarantee an extensive durability. The patented Mud Ports™ shed even the worst types of debris and keep the state of the art belt drive system in ideal function. Additional testing has revealed that the belt drive is as efficient as a chain. Particularly in the longer term it gives proof of its superior technology advantages to shed all types of debris and wear and to require low maintenance, whereas chains are reduced in their level of efficiency. It is the only drive system that is completely lubricant and maintenance-free. On top of this you can enjoy the freedom of riding your bike without any chain guard or ever having to roll up your trousers again. For putting the belt under tension, the Crocodile-Clamping-System has been developed and patented by Schindelhauer. Apart from ideal functionality, we focus just as much on balanced looks. That’s why all frames are equipped with the also patented Schindelhauer Belt-Port-Technology. This feature does not affect the stiffness of the rear triangle in any way and integrates all technical components smoothly into the design of the bike. Watch out!
If a bike ought to be equipped with a drive belt, it must have a frame with a stiff tail providing a high strength. Aluminum is ideally suited as material for component design of stiff bicycle frames due to achieving big cross sections at low weight. That’s why Schindelhauer Bikes has carefully chosen this non-ferrous-metal. High-quality 6061 aluminum is used to manufacture all frames. A maximum stiffness is achieved by T6-hot-age hardening every single frame. The Aero-tube set is triple butted and a fine compromise between lightweight design and durability. After welding the tubes by using the TIG welding process, every single weld is polished. The so-called “smooth-welding” does not only make a good visual impression, but also alleviates the stress concentration and improves the fatigue strength of the frame. A Schindelhauer Bike will give you pleasure for a long time- that’s our main objective. The appearance is flawless due to the installed cable pulleys, the integrated headset and seat clamp all within the frame. The forged dropout connects the self-developed SBP- Schindelhauer-Belt-Port as well as the Crocodile clamping system. Now the frame is ready to be fitted with the Gates™- Drive Belt.
