Gustav - The Allrounder


With a practical, functional but reduced design, Gustav is an urban all-rounder built to make the lives of everyday commuters easier. A key design highlight is the built-in front rack with its clever strap system. The rack is attached to the head tube and won’t upset the balance as you steer around corners. We’ve also designed an extremely adaptable strap system for the rack, so you can be sure that anything from picnic baskets to parcels remain securely fastened. Even with heavier objects on board, Gustav glides effortlessly through the city streets and you can enjoy a smooth ride.


The new frame geometry we’ve developed for Gustav uses a longer head tube and shorter stem for a more comfortable cycling position. It is possible to attach a child seat onto the seat tube, as well as a Thule trailer onto the rear axle. Wider tyres also make for a comfier ride and mean cobblestones or uneven surfaces are no longer something you need to avoid.
You can opt to fit Gustav with a 2-speed SRAM-Automatix hub for automatic gear shifting or with an 8-speed Shimano Nexus internal geared hub. A dynamo lighting system neatly built into the Curana fenders completes this Schindelhauer-Allrounder.


  • 2-speed SRAM-Automatix or 8-speed Shimano-Nexus
  • comfortable riding position
  • 15 kg payload capacity on front rack
  • front rack surface area: 35 cm x 26 cm x 20 cm (W x D x H)
  • child seat mounting possible

You can choose to have the bicycle delivered to a Schindelhauer dealer or directly to an address of your choice.

shipping options

There are two options for you to buy a Schindelhauer bike:

1. 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.


2. 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.
