Practical, functional and but still with a reduced appearance – Gustav is an allrounder in the urban environment and offers a lot of comfort and features for everyday commuters. One highlight is the integrated front rack. Fixed to the head tube it does not move while steering. Even when loaded heavily the bikes rides smooth and save. Be it a pick nick blanket or a parcel, your load will be fixed tightly with the flexible strap system that Schindelhauer developed for this bike.
Thanks to the new Schindelhauer frame geometry with a longer head tube and shorter stem, Gustav offers a comfortable riding position. Wide tyres help on uneven roads and allow for a relaxed driving experience. Even cobblestones or rough paths will become new favorite short cuts thanks to the comfy large volume tyres. Gustav is optionally fitted with a two-speed SRAM-Automatix hub for automatic shifting or with a 8-speed Shimano Nexus internal geared hub. An elegant lighting system which is discreetly integrated into the Curana fenders completes this Schindelhauer-newbie.
As the front rack is attached to the head tube, torsional stiffness was especially important when it came to designing the frame for Greta. We achieved this by adding a large-volume down tube. For increased flexibility when it comes to gear changing options, cables have been attached externally. The forged dropout connects the slider-belt-tensioning-system and our in-house developed SBP (Schindelhauer Belt Port). This means the bike frame is ready to be fitted with the Gates Drive Belt.
A child seat can be easily attached to this model.
The carbon-fibre reinforced belt drive makes a wonderful alternative to the conventional chain. High-strength carbon fibres mean the belt doesn’t stretch like a traditional chain and drive components need to be replaced much less frequently. As a result, the CDN belt drive lasts at least as long as a conventional chain. The open sprocket design means the innovative drive system doesn’t attract dirt and debris. Multiple tests confirm that the belt drive is as efficient as a traditional chain. The belt drive particularly proves to be a better option over the long term when traditional chains operate much less efficiently due to a build-up of dirt and wear and tear. However, it’s the low-maintenance factor that makes the belt drive really stand out. As the belt is completely lubricant and maintenance-free, the days of rolling your trousers up to avoid oil stains are over.
At Schindelhauer, we’ve developed two options for belt tension: you can opt for either the patented crocodile-belt-tensioning-system or the slider-belt-tensioning-system. We always focus on form as much as on function, so all frames are equipped with patented Schindelhauer Belt Port Technology. All technical components are fully integrated into the design of the bike without affecting the stiffness of the rear triangle.
