Where I can get my Schindelhauer?
support and guidance at your Schindelhauer dealer
We appreciate that you are interested in buying a Schindelhauer bike and suggest purchasing it at one of our Schindelhauer dealers. They will provide you with personal advice, a test ride and also offer you their best service after your purchase. Here you can find a list of our dealers:
There are two options for you to buy a Schindelhauer bike:
1. online purchase and delivery to a Schindelhauer dealer of your choice (euro zone only):
A preffered choice would be to have your bike delivered to one of our dealers at no extra cost. They set up the bike for you professionally and will have it ready for pickup by arrangement. During your online purchase process, you will be shown the option to select a dealer near you as delivery address.
2. delivery directly to your home:
If you cannot find a Schindelhauer dealer in your area through our dealer search, you can also have your desired model delivered directly to your home. The bike is delivered almost completely assembled. As explained in the manual which comes with the bike, only the tires must be filled with the appropriate air pressure, the pedals and, if included, the frame-mounted front rack need to be attached, as well as the handlebars set straight.
no Schindelhauer dealer nearby?
In this case the above mentioned option of shipping directly to your home will be possible. We are also happy to accept recommendations for future Schindelhauer dealers. If you are a owner of a bicycle shop or a customer of a recommended shop, you are welcome to send us further information via email@example.com.
buying and delivery outside the euro zone?
If you would like to purchase a Schindelhauer bicycle outside the euro zone, first contact the nearest Schindelhauer dealer in your country. Under certain circumstances this dealer can also send bikes directly to you. If you can not find a Schindelhauer dealer in your area, please contact us via our contact form or via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Setting up a Hektor: Components and gear ratios
You can set up a Hektor frameset together with us or with one of our dealers. There are several component options from us and Gates available in order to set up the bike yourself and the following combinations have been approved and tested by us. Most parts can be ordered either from us, a Schindelhauer dealer or via Gates Carbon Drive. Please also note further instructions in the links we provide below.
With a brake or without?
A classic track bike setup includes a fixed-gear hub and no brakes. This setup is not permitted on public roads. The brake guide for the Hektor frameset is prepared for installing a rim brake, a 6 mm drilling is necessary in order to install a rear caliper brake. We suggest having this done by a professional bike mechanic.
Note: it is not possible to have the brake cable run through the frame. There either needs to be a cable guide glued onto the frame or we can deliver the frame with pre-installed studded cable guides as per request. The carbon fork already has a drilled hole for installing a front caliper brake.
An option would be using the Shimano Alfine FC-S501 crankset with a short axle ("single chain guard").
Together with our high flange hub ("Flip-Flop") it is up to you whether to ride Hektor fixed or as a singlespeed/freewheel bike. The smallest possible rear sprocket is a 22-tooth option.
With our freewheel hub, sprockets with 20 to 24 teeth are possible
Full-axle thread-on-hubs need a 180mm axle, or a female axle. With this, sprockets with either 19 or 21 teeth are possible
Rear SprocketsTogether with a Schindelhauer High Flange Hub:
- As fixed: Gates CDX 9-Spline & 6-Bolt – 22 teeth
- As singlespeed/free wheel: Gates CDX White Industries Threaded Sprocket with Freewheel - 22 teeth
Together with a Schindelhauer Freewheel-Hub:
With a Thread-On Hub:
Front Sprockets and Carbon Belts
The choice between front sprocket and belt length depends on the combination between the desired gear ratio and the hub. Gates offers front sprockets with 70, 60, 55, 50 and 46 teeth. With this, CDX belts with a length of 118, 113, 111 and 108 are available. A limited number of red belts are available as well.
which frame size is right?
The frame sizes listed are only a guide. Finding the right sized frame for you depends on things like your height, personal preferences and riding style. We always recommend taking a test ride at one of our dealers.
