Schindelhauer Gets a Hollywood Closeup with Actor Daniel Brühl

  June 14, 2016

German actor Daniel Brühl likes good bikes. The star of “Captain America: Civil War” (he plays the evil genius Baron Zemo) recently visited Schindelhauer Bikes in Berlin to pick up his new Ludwig VIII. Brühl toured the Schindelhauer workshop and headquarters, then hit the streets with Schindelhauer employees.



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