My job description at Momentum Magazine includes ‘gear tester’ so I’m fortunate to try out new bicycle product and report on my findings for our dear readers. It’s almost the best part of the job and allows extended ‘riding’ lunches when the sun is out ;)
I am test riding two bikes at the moment. Concurrently, but not simultaneously, of course. One is the Schindelhauer Ludwig XIV. I’ll reserve my testing notes for the actual review (in an upcoming issue) but wanted to share a few snapshots of this high-end urban machine. It’s spec’d out with a Rohloff 14-speed internal hub, Deore LX hydraulic disc brakes, Gates carbon belt drivetrain, aluminum frame, dynamo front hub, integrated seatpost LEDs, Brooks saddle and a lot more.
Here’s a 4-up selection of iPhone shots from the top of Little Mountain, Vancouver, 2012.
