Gustav from Schindelhauer (Germany) is a practical bike for your everyday journeys through the city. It’s an urban all-rounder, functional and easy-built for your own good; its rack is attached to the head tube and won’t disappoint the balance as you steer around corners. The creators also assure that with an adaptable strap system for the rack anything remains securely fastened.

Gustav offers a smooth, effortless ride. It features 2-speed SRAM-Automatix or 8-speed Shimano-Nexus, an alighting system integrated into the mudguards (road-legal in Germany), comfortable riding position, 15 kg payload capacity on the front rack, and possible child seat mounting. The surface area for the front rack: W – 35 cm, D – 26 cm, H – 20 cm.

The new frame geometry we’ve developed for Gustav uses a longer head tube and a shorter stem for a more comfortable cycling position. Wider tires also make for a comfier ride and mean cobblestones or uneven surfaces are no longer something you need to avoid.

Many municipalities, such as the Danish city of Copenhagen, place bicycles at the center of the mobility of the future. Gustav is a highly functional all-rounder for use on the road, offering commuters plenty of comfort for their daily rides. At first glance, this stylish bike impresses with a clear design that makes all elements fit together harmoniously. Its appearance is marked by the aluminium front rack that is firmly connected to the frame.

Embodying an elegant, creative solution, the bike offers many functional advantages in everyday use. The front rack does not swivel out, allowing even heavier objects to be carried safely and without upsetting the balance when steering around corners. The safe transportation of anything from picnic baskets to parcels is ensured by a specially developed strap system for secure fastening.

From the verdict of the Red Dot Design Award 2018, Gustav is highly comfortable, and the design of the bike impressively combines a modern appearance with a tangible sense of tradition. The clear and balanced design language appeals especially to users who are looking for practical simplicity and good performance to complement their lifestyle. This bike is highly functional in everyday life. With its innovative frame geometry comprising a longer head tube and shorter stem, as well as wider tires, it offers a maximum of comfort even on rough roads.

It is a great companion on your daily routine through the city streets!
