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

In our daily work as we deal with bicycle safety, technology and user manuals we come across lots of safety risks. The most frequent ones are published in articles of the leading German special-interest magazines TOUR – Europas Rennrad-Magazin Nr. 1, BIKE – Das Mountainbike Magazin Europas Nr. 1 and E-Bike – Das Pedelec-Magazin to make this information important for the sector accessible to a wider public.

For many years now the Eurobike Show Daily accompanying the annual international Eurobike Show has given us the opportunity to publish our perspective on major developments in the cycle industry in full-page articles.

We also speak regularly in independent lectures about all topics relating to bicycle technology and bicycle market. In addition, we are regularly cited by further special-interest magazines or trade journals as well as more and more by radio and television and in their media reports, which shows us that we are completely right with our information. The section NEWS informs you about the latest news from our specialist fields. The reports and publications of this section are listed chronologically or according to topics of interest. 05/2015

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.
