The Schindelhauer Wilheim C-line comes with Pinion’s C-Line gearbox at the centre of the frame. The C-Line gearbox is a lighter, more compact gearbox compared to the P-Line, which sacrifices a bit of gear range to do this. All the gears in the world does sound like a great idea at first, but for riding round town it isn’t necessary as you might think.
Where the Pinion Gearbox really shines is in its maintenance schedule (hint: it’s not frequent). The lubricating oil in the box needs to be changed every 10,000 km or once a year. There is only one other drivetrain option to be used here and that’s the Gates Carbon Belt Drive - a similarly low maintenance alternative to a chain.
Schindelhauer have carefully chosen the contact points on the Wilheim. Leather grips are accompanied by a lovely Brooks B17 saddle and the pedals are Schindelhauers own CNC grip tape pedals. The hydraulic disc brakes come curtesy of Formula.
The Schindelhauer Wilheim is a practical urban bike. The gearbox and belt drive combination means keeps essential maintenance to a minimum, letting you focus on riding to your destination.
