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. 2017/04/04

Pupils prepare an exhibition "When the wheels learned how to turn"

As the bicycle celebrates its 200th birthday, pupils of Technisches Gymnasium Umwelttechnik of Ludwigsburg's Oscar-Walcker school dealt with this means of transport. They were supported by Zedler – Institut für Fahrradtechnik und -Sicherheit which is also located in the Baden-Wuerttemberg city of Ludwigsburg. The results are displayed in an exhibition at Ludwigsburg’s State Archives until June 29, 2017.

Zedler-Institut helped the pupils to work their way into the history and development of the bicycle. The exhibition shows the development from Draiss’ velocipede to today’s bicycle. The exhibition at Ludwigsburg’s State Archives not only shows the technical developments, but also the bicycle’s impacts on mobility, culture and society.

Two particular items of the exhibition are the patents of Freiherr von Drais and the Stuttgart inventor Johann Friedrich Trefz who developed a velocipede in 1869. A few bicycles displayed originate from the collection built up by Dirk Zedler together with the Ludwigsburg bicycle enthusiast Helge Schultz. For this purpose the pupils obtained the necessary technical information, historical background knowledge and extensive photographic material.
