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.

Dirk Zedler is expert for electric bicycles

Dirk Zedler was appointed and sworn in as expert for electric bicycles in Germany by the CCI Stuttgart region. The Zedler Institute in Ludwigsburg states that herewith he is nationwide one of the first experts for electric bicycles.

Zedler as well as the ICC Stuttgart are of the opinion that in view of the increasing number of e-bikes on public roads the bicycle sector becomes more professional with the appointment of a specific expert. Dr. Gunther Schaefer of the CCI Stuttgart region: "From our point of view this was a logical step in view of the e-bike boom. These bicycles require a particular expertise to be able to precisely assess their operational safety and damage." Dirk Zedler is happy that he was able to convince the CCI of the necessity to appoint an expert as well as of the knowledge of his institute for bicycle technology and safety. "Our competent expert’s reports for insurers, courts as well as for manufacturers and private individuals will help raising the level of the courts’ and insurers’ work on an adequate level. And this is absolutely necessary taking account of the fast development of the e-bike sector."

Nearly 20 years ago Zedler had been appointed as one of the first bicycle experts. With is company, Zedler Institut für Fahrradtechnik und -Sicherheit GmbH, he draws up user manuals for bicycles and bicycle components, builds testing systems for the determination of impact and overload behaviour of two-wheelers as well as of fatigue of frames and components and conducts tests upon orders of his customers in his company-own test laboratory.
