Fixie rider, road racer, tattoo model and vegan: Mianzi Rei is an icon of German women’s cycling and a driving force in Berlin’s urban riding scene. This stylish and contemplative video, My Legs My Gears, takes an inside look at her life in Berlin, her love of bikes, the thrill of spinning around a velodrome, and how a policeman once pushed her off her bike for riding on the sidewalk. We look forward to following Rei in 2015 when she competes in the Red Hook Crit fixed gear race series on her custom Hektor fixie with Gates Carbon Drive from Schindelhauer Bikes.
“It is great having Mianzi Rei on our team. She is ambitious, seeks new challenges every time she rides and is an icon of the European fixed gear scene,” saysJörgSchindelhauer. “Mianzi is always friendly and open-minded, making her the perfect ambassador for Schindelhauer.”
