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.

On television today: cheap bicycles at "Markt"

Today, Monday, April 18, 2016, "Markt", the business and consumer magazine of the German TV-channel NDR, is about cheap bicycles from the DIY or discount store. Dirk Zedler was interviewed on the subject as expert.

The magazine is focused on comparisons and tests of the very cheap bicycles which are repeatedly an issue in particular due to their often insufficient safety. All laboratory tests, assembly checks and test rides were carried out at Zedler-Institut.

Last year already, bicycles of the low-cost segment had been tested. The results were appalling. According to “Markt”, dealers and manufacturers had allegedly announced later that they would focus more on the safety of their models. At present, however, there were apparently further severe quality defects evivent.
