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. 2016/04/18

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.
