Standert Triebwerk CR builds a beautiful classic steel road bike

Don’t get us wrong, Standert still does disc brake road well, too. Their most recent steel Triebwerk Disc LTD road bike update with a more narrow tapered fork and room for 32mm road tires made that bike both more modern & more classic at the same time. And realistically, that’s probably the type of road bike I would prefer.

But I know there are still plenty of classic rim brake roadie holdouts. And we are truly happy to see Standert refining classic builds too. They’ve done well with limited edition rim brake road bikes before. But this one jumps back to more classy, classic standards, without leaving the most important modern technical advances behind.

Standert says, “We didn’t test it in a wind tunnel because the views in there suck. Instead, we had a lovely trip to France and rode it up the Mont Ventoux. The Triebwerk CR is made to create memories and take you places, instead of KOMs and races.”

Tech details

The “Classic Rim brake” Standert Triebwerk CR was developed to mix modern steel into a timeless road bike. It is TIG-welded in Taiwan from a multi-butted mix of Columbus Spirit, Spirit HSS & XCr tubes.

Claimed frame weight is 1815g (size 56cm), plus 375g for the Columbus Futura Caliper SL carbon fork.

With a sneaky touch for the modern… the rim brake, QR dropout frameset does feature a T47 threaded bottom bracket, modular internal cable routing for 1x/2x, Di2/eTap/EPS shifting, and room for modern 28mm tires.

It does stick with a straight 1.125″ headtube, 27.2mm seatpost, and external seatpost clamp, though.
