The process is simple: put together your dream bike from selected high-quality bike parts. Then one of our bike-mad employees builds your bike from scratch with a lot of love.
The end result is always unique and reflects your taste 100%.
Stefan Schott, Founder / Managing Director: “We only develop bikes that we want to ride ourselves. So you can be sure that we only use the best products and are passionate about what we do.” Team Founder / CEO
I compete in races for over 20 years now. Together with a collective of cycle-crazy friends, I brought my vision to life and established 8bar bikes.
I'm responsible for the business management, corporate strategy as well as marketing conception.
I enjoy fixed gear racing, road clubrides as much as gravel riding and bikepacking adventures.
My fav bike is his 8bar MITTE because it's so versatile and he can use it for everything.
Friends like to call me the Swiss army knife. Because I enjoy solving problems, in the workshop but also when bikepacking.
My favourite thing to do is technical fixed-gear racing but also crunchy cross laps through "Sandenburg".
My favourite thing to do is ride my 8bar NEUKLN through the city.
Purchase / Controlling
As a business graduate from Kreuzberg, working for a bicycle manufacturer in Berlin is just perfect! Actually, running is my passion – "My gears are my legs" and before 8bar my radius with the bike was about 5 km. Now a 100 km gravel ride is also possible – and it's fun! In the city, I prefer to ride the KRZBERG – it also looks the best!
Merchandise Management / Customer Support / B2B
The bicycle has determined my life for many years. Everything has to do with the bike, shopping, sport, holidays and also work.
It started with the mountain bike in the 90s, but I ride everything, Singlespeed MTB, touring bike with panniers and retro road bike. My favourite thing is still MTB touring, but I'm totally blown away by my new 8bar PRENZLBERG as a fixie with Gates belt, wide handlebars, mudguards, pizza rack and studded tyres – a bike for everything in everyday life and more.
Sales / Customer Support
I like to hear myself talk – especially about bikes. My favourite thing to do is ride my fixie around town or go cross-touring in the countryside.
I love to let off steam creatively and meander through Berlin traffic with my Kreuzberg v7 from one culinary delight to the next.
Mechatronics technician / Sales
Whether fixed or with gears – I love to ride through the Berlin traffic and make the streets unsafe. My favorite buddy is my fluorescent FHAIN v2, which brings even light to the darkest day.
Storage / Shipping / Assembly
Riding my BMX and chilling together with friends at skate parks. My main bike is 8bar KRZBERG V7 in the streets of Berlin.

Bicycle Mechatronics Technician – Education
Screwing, tinkering and dirty hands is my thing – what I like best is driving through city traffic – my 8bar KRZBERG v7.
