Living in any city centre comes with its fair share of challenges, with one of the primary ones being space. Bikes can be tricky to store even with the best will in the world as they have handlebars and pedals sticking straight out the side. Schindelhauer have created a clever solution to storing an urban bike: it’s called the Thinbike.
The aluminium frame is designed around 24” wheels. Smaller wheels are easier to navigate down hallways and upstairs, and they accelerate quickly from traffic lights. The real party tricks of the bikes are in the pedals and stem. The pedals fold in and the stem rotates to allow you to put the handlebars parallel with the frame - all of this without tools. Once folded you can hang your bike off the floor on the included wall mount (or go for a classic wall lean).
For the rest of the specification, Schindelhauer have a few other neat touches. Braking uses a front cable operated disc paired with a coaster brake in the rear hub. The front brake lever also has an integrated bell. Inside the seatpost is a set red LEDs - all for keeping you visible in the night time (and even we can’t forget a light that inside your seatpost).
If space is an issue in your apartment or home and you want a bike that fits in without causing clutter, the Schindelhauer Thinbike is ready for all your urban excursions.
