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.

Mystery carbon …

(...) was the main topic of the congress with two lectures dealing with it.

Carbon is increasingly popular in bike and part manufacturing. But what exactly is this material, how is it processed, how does it differ from other materials like aluminium or steel? Thomas Mertin knew the answers to all these questions and gave important lessons on basic terms like the difference between strength and stiffness. Furthermore, he explained why seemingly small damages in the carbon-surface can, in the worst case, negatively influence the stability of the whole structure.

The following workshops conducted by Dirk Zedler led from theory to practice: The bike expert opened his audience's eyes by pointing out that competent assembling and handling was even more important with carbon than with other materials known in the bike sector. In these fields, many mistakes were made which could have fatal consequences.
