FIXED42 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP !!!
The complete package of radness and lunacy, all compressed in 42.195 Kilometers.
Cleared roads. Fixed. Straight through the heart of Berlin.
A cycling-dream come true.
Never before has there been an official road race for trackbikes on a 42.195 Kilometer long downtown-track with secured roads and all. We don’t have the slightest clue how many times you had the chance to become a world champion in anything. But now is the day. As part of the Garmin Velothon Berlin every fixed rider has the chance to compete for this title. All you need to do is pedal harder than the rest of the pack and cross the finish line first.
There will be a team rating. The times of the fastest 3 riders of a team will be added. The team with the fastest added overall time will be crowned WORLD CHAMPION !
*** Registration ends Thursday May 21st ***
THE SCHINDELHAUER BIKES WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP TROPHIES!!!
We proudly present: the hand painted Schindelhauer Bikes x RAD RACE Hektor frame sets: our 2 trophies for the male & female world champion.
The Hektor frame set by Schindelhauer Bikes
Velodrome, Criterium, or Road - the Hektor frameset is the core around which to build a custom racing machine. Stiff, aggressive, and craving speed, yet supple and dynamic, the Hektor features LoPro geometry to deliver an agile, balanced, and comfortable ride for those who bring the challenge on themselves. The sculpted seams are welded from large volume, triple-butted, aero tubes for a highly stiff, tuned frameset, showcasing our years of design and craftsmanship. Comprised of frame, fork, headset, and of course 100% compatible with the Gates Carbon Drive. More info about this frame on the Schindelhauer Bikes Website.
