- Belt Drive
We know that buying your dream bike or electric bike isn't a snap decision - that's why we offer free test rides in each of our four London bike shops.
We've made booking a test ride easy with our online system. Start by choosing a date and time that suits you, followed by your preferred location and finally, the model or bike type that interests you.
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.

Schindelhauer’s Viktor is rightly named as the purist in their range. Schindelhauer set out to make bikes that are simple in their use, elegant in their form and clever engineering to bring them to life. Viktor takes these principles to heart as it is a bike that is truly simple yet entirely practical.
At the heart of the Viktor is a lightweight aluminium frame. The rear brake cable runs neatly inside the top tube and the seat post clamp is pleasantly integrated into the frame. You’d be forgiven for just glancing at the rear wheel dropouts, yet this clever piece of design holds your wheel in place, tensions your drivetrain and splits, to allow your belt to be fitted.
The simplicity continues with the drivetrain. Instead of using a chain, the Viktor comes with a single-speed Gates Belt Drive. Belts wear much slower than a chain and do not require lubrication to function. Maintenance-free is a bit of a dream, but a belt drive is about as close as it gets. The other user-operated part is a pair of calliper rim brakes: a time-tested design to keep you in control.
Schindelhauer themselves have designed the majority of the other components on the bike, including their one-piece handlebar and stem and wonderful CNC urban pedals. On the practical end of things, there are mounts to install mudguards and a front rack.
Given the careful thought that Schindelhauer has given to all aspects of the Viktor, this bike is a versatile piece of kit. Going out for a steady spin really is a joy, yet the Viktor is tough enough for daily commuting duties.
