ThinBike – the slimline
The love for bicycles prompts bike-connoisseurs all over the world to store their wheels in their apartments. Unfortunately, conventional bikes are often too bulky and folding bikes are just not quite ‘real bikes’. ThinBike’s concept is to provide a full-size bicycle with inventive and elegant solutions for inner-city traffic, like an integrated taillight or a bell built into the brake lever. In addition, by folding up the handlebar and pedals, ThinBike takes it’s rightful place in even the smallest of rooms. The Gates Carbon Drive® combined with a two-gear hub always assures the right drive in city turmoil.
For the ThinBike Schindelhauer bridges between modern living and urban mobility. Thats why the ThinBike comes with an appealing wall mount which has been developed in cooperation with Magazin.com !

Sram-Automatix (with coaster brake):
The two-speed SRAM Automatix ensures stress-free comfort in every situation, be it a head start at a traffic light in first gear, autonomous upshifting in the right moment (~15km/h) or shifting down when you approach the next red light. The sturdy, carefree shifting system with coaster brake is based on a centrifugal clutch and thus needs no gear shifter or shift cable.
