The Ludwig VIII is worthy of its own Hollywood closeup. With a clean and smooth Gates belt drive and eight-speed Alfine internally geared hub, plus stylish touches including a Brooks leather saddle and leather grips, the Ludwig VIII defines high-performance urban bike style. The alloy frame features Schindelhauer’s distinctive time-trial cutout on the seat tube, plus the company’s signature integrated seat post clamp, and comes in three colors:midnight blue (like Bruhl’s), polished aluminum or cream white.It’s the ideal bike for pedaling through Berlin, rushing to a business meeting, or escaping paparazzi.
