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.

Parts replacement on pedelecs

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.
