All about bicycles, electric-assisted bikes, technology and safety in the press

The most common safety risks that we come across in our daily work around bicycle safety, technology and operating instructions are also published by us in articles in the leading German special-interest magazines TOUR (Europe's road bike magazine no. 1), BIKE (Europe's mountain bike magazine no. 1), MYBIKE and EMTB in order to make this information, which is important for the industry, available to a wider public.

For many years now, the Eurobike Show Daily, trade fair magazine of the annual Eurobike Show, has also given us the opportunity to publish our view of major developments in the cycle industry in full-page articles.

We also speak regularly in independent expert presentations about all areas of bicycle technology and the bicycle market. In addition, we are quoted by further special-interest magazines of the industry and the trade as well as increasingly by radio and television in their media reports, which shows us that we are spot on with our advice. The section "News" informs you about the latest news from our specialist areas. The reports and publications of this section are listed chronologically or according to areas of interest.

Bloody test

Bad crash caused by material failure.

Bad crash caused by material failure: The covering cap of a White Brother SL 90 HD’s stanchion tube had come loose, the flipping steel spring hit the teeth of test rider Listmann. Conclusion of bike expert and engineer Dirk Zedler: "The stanchion tube was twisted too much on the inside, the thread could not engage." This must not happen. We excluded the fork from the test. The manufacturer has launched a recall.
