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.

Parts replacement on pedelecs

The German Bicycle Association ZIV, the German service and bicycle association VSF, the umbrella organization for German industry guilds BIV as well as Zedler-Institut established non-obliging guidelines about the parts replacement on pedelecs.

• Category 3 lists parts which may be replaced upon approval of the vehicle or parts manufacturer: crank, wheel without motor, chain, toothed belt, rim tape, brake cables, brake hoses, brake pads, handlebars, stem, saddle, seatpost, front lights, tyres.

• Reason: stronger acceleration, additional weight and more dynamic cornering require the use of tyres approved for e-bike use. In this respect, observance of the ETRTO is absolutely necessary.
