Once you have purchased your new bike from us, it will be put into the build queue for one of our workshops. Your bike will be built and will undergo a Pre Delivery Inspection (PDI) by one of our expert mechanics. A PDI is a checklist that the mechanic follows to confirm that all parts of your new bike are up to our high standards.

Next, your bike will be prepared for shipping. Padding is used on all the necessary areas and your bike is loaded into a sturdy cardboard bike box. All the necessary paperwork and accessories will be packed inside too. Most of our cardboard and packaging are recycled from incoming deliveries. Bikes are usually delivered by DPD within the UK.

In order to package your bike safely, you will need to do a small amount of assembly when it arrives. It can vary from bike to bike, but usually you’ll need to: fit the front wheel, install the handlebars and fit the pedals. Please note that not all bikes come with pedals - please check the specification on each bike, we’ll include it on there.

Product Description

With the new strictly limited Monochrome Edition Schindelhaur give an exciting twist and equip Ludwig XI with black components. As Schindelhauer describe: "the expressive contrast of light and dark is like a journey into the aesthetics of film noir." To continue the bike's monochrome look, you can enjoy the Brooks Cambium C17 saddle and Brooks Ergonomic Rubber Grips as further configuration highlights. Each bike is individually numbered by engraving and strictly limited to 100 worldwide.

The Schindelhauer Ludwig is a real down-to-earth practical, everyday kind of bike. The simplicity of a belt drive and internal hub gear means you can get out in all weathers and tackle any terrain you need, whether you’re riding to the shops, to work or to meet friends.

Schindelhauer has used the Gates Carbon Belt Drive since they started, and the Ludwig is no different. Bikes with belt drive do not require lubrication to function efficiently which helps keep your clothes clean and requires little in the way of maintenance. The 11-speed internal hub gear helps level out any hills you encounter, which, similar to the belt drive, doesn’t require much maintenance.
