Taking a step up from the standard Ludwig, the Ludwig XIV brings the premier in internal hub gears to Schindelhauer: the Rholfoff Speedhub. The hub comes from the German gearing wizards that cut their teeth with the round-the-world touring crew so they know a thing or two about long term durability.
The Ludwig frame sits comfortably in the speedy-practical end of urban bikes. The riding position is slightly forward, but not too far forward, which is well suited to mixed riding - a bit of touring, (a lot of) commuting, a bit of general duty riding.
An ideal match to the Rohloff is the Gates Carbon Belt Drive that connects it to the crankset. Belts are low maintenance as they do not need any lubrication to function. This pairing means your drivetrain will look after itself for a considerable amount of time before you need to service it.
All-in, the Schindelhauer Ludwig 14 is bike built to last and built to be ridden regularly. If you need a dependable bike for daily duties, the Ludwig is a solid choice.
