Minimal in design and reliable in action, Viktor is designed for sailing through the city streets with perfect ease and unrivalled style. Schindelhauer innovations like a smooth and seamless welded handlebar stem and integrated seatpost clamp lend it a unique style. A Gates Carbon Drive CDX belt improves power transmission and needs no maintenance or oil in contrast to a traditional metal chain. It also makes little or no noise, meaning your cycling soundscape can consist solely of rushing wind and singing birds.
Incorporating a flip-flop hub, Viktor allows you to switch between fixed gear and freewheel.
- Single speed / Fixed Gear
- short wheelbase for agile handling
- sport geometry, high bottom bracket
- integrated stem/handlebar combination
- custom-tailored mudguards and front pannier rack available
- patented Schindelhauer crocodile belt tensioning 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!
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.
Schindelhauer - crocodile-belt-clamping-system
The Gates™ belt has to be kept under tension. A task that Schindelhauer’s patented Crocodile clamping system can easily fulfill. The axis is steplessly adjustable by simply twisting the tooth lock washer resulting in an exact adjustment of the belt prestressing. Our primary objective was to develop a system that is easy to handle. By using a 17 open-jaw wrench the conical spring washer is twisted clockwise. The gearing releases the axis backwards, resulting in the prestressing of the belt. The axis is fixed by using an Allen wrench. Singlespeed and Fixed-Gear bikes made by Schindelhauer are equipped with a Crocodile clamping system on both sides of the back wheel. All components used consist of nitro steel and ensure a protection against corrosion. Riding your bike for a hell of a long time in that manner would still see it operating flawlessly.
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 patented 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 - flip-flop hub
To make your decision between Fixed-Gear and Singlespeed bike easier, we equipped Viktor and Siegfried with a Flip-Flop-hub. Due to the second pulley you can switch between freewheeling and engaging a gear anytime. Our aim was to develop a stiff wheel which can stand up to tough every day use. First of all, we used a mounting width of 135 mm instead of the standard 120 mm for the Fixed-Gear-Bikes. In this way the spoke flanges moved slightly apart, resulting in a greater spoke support. Another step to achieve a stiff wheel was to apply a freehub body which precisely fits a pulley- after all, that’s all we need. The wheel can be spoked symmetrically. Besides, we apply high-quality industrial bearings, the light aluminum made insert freewheel and high-strength Allen screws to locate the hub to make this hub a technical treat!
FABRIC - Scoop Shallow Sport
Like the Viktor frame, the saddle is distinctively purist and sporty. The stable FeC-Rails represent a robust base framework which braces you for the daily challenges on the road. The upholstery in different strengths with an anatomic cut in the middle of the saddle ensures a minimum of comfort. The surface material is a 100% waterproof, so you don’t need to worry as you prepare for the next Mega-Skid even when it’s pouring with rain.
Shimano Alfine - hollowtech II 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.
Tange Seiki - integrated headset
The main thrust of all Schindelhauer Bikes is reduction by means of system integration. Even the headset won’t be spared. The cartridge chamber made by Tange is fully integrated and shines due to the waist shaped head tube. The entire bike seems to be flawless due to the smooth transition of bicycle fork and stem. Besides, the bearings are optimal protected against dust and debris.
Schindelhauer - handlebar/ stem combination
Our desire for a clean look culminates in this handlebar-stem-combination, achieved by using the TIG-welding process on the Riser-handlebar and the slightly downward tilted A-Head-Stem. The handlebar appears flawless and completes every single Viktor as a design piece. In addition, the omission of additional material on the handle bar clamp saves a few grams in weight.
Tektro - brake systems
The ultra-light dual-pivot road bike brakes with side-pull go perfectly with the classic design of our bikes. Forged aluminum is used to manufacture the brake arms. Optimal delay in dry and wet conditions is achieved by applying angle adjusted brake pads. The easy to handle quick release makes disassembling your set of wheels a piece of cake.
