There is something special about a drop-bar single-speed bike. They feel a little bit traditional, a little bit nifty and whole lot of fun. Schindelhauer have taken their Siegfried urban bike and added a sprinkling of fun into the mix.
Aluminium is the choice of material for the frame, which Schindelhauer have worked into a pleasant shape, with minimal logos and branding. The seat post is neatly integrated into the frame as well as the rear brake cable which hides away inside the top tube.
Down at the drivetrain, the Schindelhauer Siegfried Road uses a Gates Carbon Belt Drive attached to a flip flop hub, so you can run it both as a fixed gear and as a free wheel. The real beauty of the Belt Drive is how easy it is to use and maintain. Belts do not require lubrication to work so they are clean in use (no more gunked up trouser hems), which also means less time cleaning.
The delicate and tasteful finishing touches on the Siegfried include the Brooks leather bar tape and saddle and the Continental Grand Prix classic tyres. That brown contrasting with the aluminium is sumptuous.
The Schindelhauer Siegfried Road fits in nicely alongside the Viktor and Siegfried as a versatile urban bike for a variety of uses. The racier position on the Road version of the Siegfried is well suited to those who enjoy a bit of speed in getting where they’re going.
