Riding through the city streets is a feeling without compare, but sometimes it’s nice to escape to the peace and quiet of the countryside. Single-speed bikes aren’t quite as enjoyable to ride in undulating terrain (well, they are for some people), so Schindelhaur set about taking their simple and elegant frames away from the city and the result is the Schindelhauer Ludwig.
The Ludwig is one the bikes that sits in Schindelhauer’s classic range - designed for riding anywhere. The aluminium frame shares the elegant form of the likes of the Viktor, with a change in geometry to something more upright and comfortable.
Schindelhauer have used the Gates Carbon Belt Drive since they started, and the Ludwig is no different. Belt Drives do not require lubrication to function efficiently which helps keep your clothes clean and requires little in the way of maintenance. An 8 or 11-speed internal hub gear helps level out any hills you encounter, which, similar to the belt drive, doesn’t require much maintenance.
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.
