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.

VSF dealers discuss multichannel solutions

Beginning November the participating dealers met at Haus Neuland near Bielefend to attend this years members’ meeting of the branch association VSF (Verbund Service und Fahrrad). The association lived up to their name as one of the innovators in the cycle branch and declared the challenges of e-commerce core issue of the event. In addition, the course for the future was set and a new management board elected.


During the second day of the show the VSF-dealers had the opportunity to attend workshops and learn more about the new products of several suppliers, before taking part in the large VSF-dialogue between manufacturers and dealers in the evening. The third day the meeting was completed by a lecture of Dirk Zedler (Zedler institute) about the CE-marking of pedelecs. As the lecture was of great interest to the dealers, the planned time schedule of the lecture was clearly exceeded. On the occasion of the final evening the dealers and VSF-partners had the opportunity to drink a toast to the successful year. On the fourth day the members could take part in joint excursions to the manufacturer Patria or visit the Historic Museum in Bielefeld.
