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.

E-bike knowledge

For 20 years graduate engineer Dirk Zedler has been working as a bicycle expert. In these days he was publicly appointed and sworn in as one of Germany’s first experts for electric bicycles.

Dirk Zedler - bicycle expert since 20 years

Dr. Gunther Schaefer of the CCI Stuttgart region: "With the appointment of Mr Zedler as expert for electric bicycles we meet the development in road traffic and the demand in experts for this field. These bicycles require a particular expertise to be able to precisely assess their operational safety and damage." Zedler’s institute for bicycle technology in Ludwigsburg near Stuttgart draws up user manuals for bicycles and bicycle components in more than 30 languages.

In his function as expert he assesses accidented bicycles in legal disputes. And the test stands developed by his institute, e.g. for stiffness measurements, are also to be found in the E-BIKE laboratory. For years, Dirk Zedler has been supporting the magazine with his technical advice. That is to say E-BIKE is well advised, which also applies to our readers.
