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.

  • Belt drive system - Gates Carbon drive

     

    Smoothly and quietly riding down the street- only listening to the sweet sound of the noise on the road. Alone the advantages of the belt drive system can make this experience come true. By applying the revolutionary Carbon Drive Technology made and developed by Gates™, carbon fibres are embedded in a polyurethane material, thus enabling the belt drive to outplay the chain. The belt’s superior technological advantages - low noise and zero maintenance - are truly irresistible. Extensive testing of the belt drive has shown that due to the applied high-strength carbon fibre, there is not even the slightest evidence of stretching, which forces you to replace drive components and is commonly observed when using standard chains. Consequently, the belt drive lasts much longer than standard chains and has an expected running performance of approximately 20,000 km (13,670 Miles). All rear-pulleys are exclusively manufactured from hardened steel to guarantee an extensive durability. The patented Mud Ports™ shed even the worst types of debris and keep the state of the art belt drive system in ideal function. Additional testing has revealed that the belt drive is as efficient as a chain. Particularly in the longer term it gives proof of its superior technology advantages to shed all types of debris and wear and to require low maintenance, whereas chains are reduced in their level of efficiency. It is the only drive system that is completely lubricant and maintenance-free. On top of this you can enjoy the freedom of riding your bike without any chain guard or ever having to roll up your trousers again. For putting the belt under tension, the Crocodile-Clamping-System has been developed and patented by Schindelhauer. Apart from ideal functionality, we focus just as much on balanced looks. That’s why all frames are equipped with the also patented Schindelhauer Belt-Port-Technology. This feature does not affect the stiffness of the rear triangle in any way and integrates all technical components smoothly into the design of the bike. Watch out! 

     

     

  • Schindelhauer - crocodile-belt-clamping-system 

     

    The Gates™ belt has to be kept under tension. A task that Schindelhauer’s patented Crocodile clamping system can easily fulfill. The axis is steplessly adjustable by simply twisting the tooth lock washer resulting in an exact adjustment of the belt prestressing. Our primary objective was to develop a system that is easy to handle. By using a 17 open-jaw wrench the conical spring washer is twisted clockwise. The gearing releases the axis backwards, resulting in the prestressing of the belt. The axis is fixed by using an Allen wrench. Singlespeed and Fixed-Gear bikes made by Schindelhauer are equipped with a Crocodile clamping system on both sides of the back wheel. All components used consist of nitro steel and ensure a protection against corrosion. Riding your bike for a hell of a long time in that manner would still see it operating flawlessly.

     

     

  • Schidnelhauer - belt port 

     

    We like the idea of the drive belt blending in with the back frame tri-angle. Unfortunately, the laws of physics prevent that option. Due to Schindelhauer’s patented SBP-System the opening is well hidden and changing your drive belt is an easy task. A fixed connection between seat and chain stay is achieved by applying Schindelhauer’s positively spool piece in wave form, which reflects the design of the drive belt. It can easily be removed and reinstalled. By applying a continuous screw connecting all components, the original stiff state is restored and it looks as if nothing has ever been changed. No more annoying combinations of transmissions or screw connections affecting your eyesight- only the pure aesthetics of the invisible remain. If it involves a Schindelhauer Bike, this application goes visibly unnoticed. We are very proud of that.

     

     

  • Schindelhauer - folding stem

     

    Fold and save space – Thinbike’s core is its folding stem with integrated “space saving functionality”, in which the handlebar can be turned by 90° thus cutting the bikes space requirements in half. The convenient quick release locks the bar in its parking or driving position, while a safety interlock prevents an unwanted opening. An integrated end stop ensures that the bar is always straightened out in its driving position. Pesky adjustments of the handlebar are no longer needed.

     

     

  • Wellgo - folding pedals

     

    In addition to the folding stem, the folding pedals also contribute to a space saving apartment. The sturdy alloy-pedal ensures a safe stand and can be folded in and out with a skilful kick. Your hands will stay clean.

     

     

  • Schindelhauer - aluminum frame

     

    If a bike ought to be equipped with a drive belt, it must have a frame with a stiff tail providing a high strength. Aluminum is ideally suited as material for component design of stiff bicycle frames due to achieving big cross sections at low weight. That’s why Schindelhauer Bikes has carefully chosen this non-ferrous-metal. High-quality 6061 aluminum is used to manufacture all frames. A maximum stiffness is achieved by T6-hot-age hardening every single frame. The Aero-tube set is triple butted and a fine compromise between lightweight design and durability. After welding the tubes by using the TIG welding process, every single weld is polished. The so-called “smooth-welding” does not only make a good visual impression, but also alleviates the stress concentration and improves the fatigue strength of the frame. A Schindelhauer Bike will give you pleasure for a long time- that’s our main objective. The appearance is flawless due to the installed cable pulleys, the integrated headset and seat clamp all within the frame. The forged dropout connects the self-developed SBP- Schindelhauer-Belt-Port as well as the Crocodile clamping system. Now the frame is ready to be fitted with the Gates™- Drive Belt.

     

     

  • Schindelhauer - wall mount

     

    This wall mount – that neatly forms a bridge between living and mobility- was developed in cooperation with interior-specialist MAGAZIN®. The wall mount, made of lasered and bended aluminium sheet and unhandled wood complements ThinBike’s puristic design perfectly, thus guaranteeing its perfect stage at home. Hence the mount, which can also be used as a shelf for your keys or lock, transforms the bike into a unique design object within your lodgings while protecting it from theft at the same time. The MAGAZIN® wall mount is a compulsory part of the ThinBike package. 

     

     

  • Tektro Lyra - integrated bell

     

    Sometimes you have to gain attention if you want to go fast in dense urban traffic. With our inconspicuously integrated bell in the brake handle, this should be no problem, as you don’t even need to take your hand off the handlebar. 

     

     

  • Tektro Lyra - disk brake system

     

    If you want to go fast, you need to be able to slow down fast. The cable-operated Lyra disc brake by Tektro brings, in cooperation with its 160mm brake disc, ThinBike (+Driver) to a safe standstill. The post mount fixture guarantees a clean looking fork.

     

     

  • LighSKIN - LED seat post 

     

    LightSKIN seatpost and its five discretely integrated bright LEDs are sure to cause a stir in traffic. The topmost LED functions as a control button for five different light modes and two AA batteries located inside the seatpost provide over 400 hours of illumination.

     

     

  • Schwalbe Kojak - tires

     

    With its baldness and volume, the slick “Kojak” by Schwalbe is a perfect match for our radically equipped ThinBike. Its home is the street and as a folding tire, it shines through lightness and the 40 mm width guarantees comfort. Its safety is ensured by reflective labels and a RaceGuard protective-belt.

Despite its handy and compact appearance, ThinBike scores by offering an adult seating position that is both sporty and comfy at the same time. The low stand-over height eases getting on the bike and also makes ThinBike a stylish companion for ladies. “One-Size-Fits-Most” is the magic formula for a single unisex frame size, which can be fitted to body heights between 155 and 190 cm only thanks to adjusting the saddle height and handle bars angle. 24 inch wheels render our little friend nimble and agile.
