Friedrich VIII/XI - Smooth Stylish Comfort
Proving that style and comfort are not mutually exclusive, Friedrich promises an ultra-smooth ride for urban or rural jaunts while looking sharp at the same time. Opt for either an 8 or 11-speed Shimano Alfine internal geared hub, both of which feature the noise and maintenance-free Gates Carbon Drive CDX belt. Friedrich featuring lightweight and robust Curana mudguards, an integrated bright Supernova lighting system, and a sleek Tubus rear rack, made of stainless steel.
- 8- or 11-speed Alfine internal geared hub
- low bottom bracket, long wheelbase and reduced saddle to handlebar drop for a comfortable riding position
- Supernova lights and Shutter Precision hub dynamo
- Curana mudguards and Tubus pannier rack
- low maintenance mechanical disc-brake system
Center Track - belt drive system
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!
Two guided slides serve as the attachment for the rear-wheel. By use of the forward tilted opening axis mounts, the belt is automatically brought into its initial preset tension while mounting the wheels. A finely brushed stainless steel plate covers all clamping screws which fix the slides into place. Despite the concentration of technology in such confined spaces, we have achieved a clean look. Two adjusting screws serve for the adjustment of the belt tension and the alignment of the rear-wheel.
Schindelhauer belt port
We like the idea of the drive belt blending in with the back frame tri-angle. Unfortunately, the laws of physics prevent that option. Due to Schindelhauer’s patent pending SBP-System the opening is well hidden and changing your drive belt is an easy task. A fixed connection between seat and chain stay is achieved by applying Schindelhauer’s positively spool piece in wave form, which reflects the design of the drive belt. It can easily be removed and reinstalled. By applying a continuous screw connecting all components, the original stiff state is restored and it looks as if nothing has ever been changed. No more annoying combinations of transmissions or screw connections affecting your eyesight- only the pure aesthetics of the invisible remain. If it involves a Schindelhauer Bike, this application goes visibly unnoticed. We are very proud of that.
Schindelhauer - aluminum frame
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.
Brooks Team Pro Classic - leather saddle
It doesn’t get any more classy than this. For decades, bike-connaisseurs have been appreciating this core leather saddle made in England. Once broken in, you can count on this saddle for a lifetime, even if you took it to the end of the world and back. The Brooks Team Pro Classic is regarded as the perfect touring saddle and with its refined design and classic chrome rails it is a perfect match to our Ludwig model.
Schindelhauer - ergo grips
The ergonomic shaped handles provide a direct link to your wheel and make every single ride a pure delight. The big locating surfaces provide a maximum feeling of comfort due to a well balanced pressure distribution. Both handles are securely clamped and kept twist-proof at the handlebar with clamping rings. The brown shining core leather lies comfortable in the hand and reflects the saddle color. In that way design and functionality are perfectly united again.
Shimano Alfine 8-/11-gear hub
Ludwig is equipped with a Shimano 8-/11-gear hub. A total gear range of about 307% offers enough leeway even for undergoing extensive bike rides with climbs and tail wind passages. The pawls free freewheel of the low maintenance hub is ultra-silent and suits the quiet belt drive perfectly. Engaging gears is done easily and precisely by using the Rapidfire-shifter.
Schindelhauer - urban pedal
Pedal in style – On our quest for the perfect pedal, we developed the Urban-Pedal. With its flat outline and slip-proof 3M-SafetyWalk tread, a safe stand and ideal force transmission is provided at all times. The light, CNC-shaped pedal is high-end equipped with a CrMo Axle, a sealed bearing and an IGUS plain bearing. Furthermore, it can be combined with our pedal hook set and our pedal straps.
Tektro - Spyre
This mechanical disc-brake Spyre by Tektro knuckles down twice. In contrast to ordinary mechanical disc brakes, due to the dual sized construction both pads actuate at the same time and then de-actuate again of the brake disc (180 mm front, 160 mm rear). This makes for maximum clearance and silence along with an even pad wear. Readjusting is done with no hassle and tool-free, thus wonderfully complementing Frieda’s all-round carefree package.
Shimano Alfine - hollowtech crankset
The Shimano Alfine crankset is excellently suited for applying the drive belt system. For this purpose both the hollow axis and external inner bearings make their contribution towards achieving the essential stiffness that the belt demands. A fixed stop collar enforces a precise belt line, thus ensuring a high durability of the belt. But looks were not neglected here, as the crank sticks out as a visual highlight and further distinguishes the style of the bike.
