For this build we took the 2017 Schindelhauer Hektor frame in Electric Blue with aluminum fork. Stiff, aggressive, and craving speed, yet nimble and dynamic thanks to its LoPro geometry, Hektor delivers an agile, balanced, and comfortable ride for those who live to challenge themselves. It was a perfect start for a custom fixed-gear urban bike.
Originally the bike was built for a client in Miami Beach, thus the name – Sofi!
We used the Alfine crankset, 22T Gates CDX 9-spline/6bolt rear sprocket mounted on Schindelhauer High Flange Huband 70T Gates CDX front sprocket – this gave us a ratio of 3.18 that allows to go really fast while still being comfortable enough for urban riding. And of course we used the Gates CDX Carbon Belt for power transmission and Schindelhauer Urban CNC pedals with CrMo spindle.
We also installed the LightSkin seat post, Brooks England classic B17 saddle. To add a bit of class and comfort we installed the Nitto 50 cm handlebar with Schindelhauer leather grips on the Schindelhauer 90 mm stem. The front brake set up is all CNC-machined: GranCru brake lever and Fouriers brake. To safeguard our components we installed Hexlox on the seat post, saddle, stem, grips, and both wheels.
Total weight of the bicycle is just above 7 kgs making it just right for everyday riding in the city.
