Product Description


Kalkhoff Durban 8 2017 Men's

Top of the Durban range, this is a superbly-equipped Euro urban bike from one of Germany's most highly regarded bicycle companies.

Upgrades over Kalkhoff Durban 7

  • Quality hydraulic disc brakes - why you want them.
  • A stylish front rack complements the rear.
  • Both lights are fitted to their racks.
  • Schwalbe's most puncture resistant Marathon Plus tyres.
  • Brighter front light (30 lumen over 15).
  • Shimano Nexus 8-speed hub has a wider gear range (307%) over the Nexus 7 (244%) so you're less likely to spin out on the flat.

Shimano Nexus / Alfine 8 speed hub gears
Here, Kalkhoff spec the tried and tested Shimano Nexus 8-speed hub, then upgrade the transmission with a Shimano Alfine Rapidfire trigger shifter.

  • As with every hub gear, the Shimano Nexus gear mechanisms are protected from the elements inside the rear wheel’s hub.
  • You can change gear shifts whether you’re pedalling or not, moving or stationary.
  • With a 307% difference between top and bottom gear (equivalent to a 12-38 cassette) the Nexus 8-speed hub offers as wide a range of gears as you might ever need.

Same as Kalkhoff Durban 7

This is something the Europeans do best - a comfortable city bike that's fully equipped with hub gears, dynamo lights, mudguards, chain guard and a rack.

  • Smooth stylish design, you can tell why Kalkhoff are one of Germany's most highly regarded bicycle companies.
  • Shimano Nexus internal hub gears are intrinsically clean, lower maintenance and longer lasting than derailleur systems.
  • You can change gear whether the bike is moving or stationary and whether you're pedalling or freewheeling.
  • Fitted with full mudguards, pannier rack, chainguard and kickstand.
  • The front dynamo hub powers the high quality front and rear LED lights, so no light batteries to replace or recharge.
  • Unlike some dynamo systems, the lights have a standlight feature, so they stay on when you stop at the traffic lights.

Is it possible to publish the weight of this in the XL size? I'm aware that Kalkhoff don't seem to disclose this information but does one of your shops have scales in order to find out?
The product photo shows a bike with a derailleur, the product description say it has hub gears - which is correct? Also, what is the difference between the Durban and the basic Endeavor?
Can the left brake lever be incorporated with the right brake lever. I do not have a functional left hand
What length of warranty do Kalkhoff bikes have, especially for the frame?
Also, is a frame lock available as an option?
Can the front carrier be removed? Can the front light be relocated after removing front carrier?
