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., 2023/02/23

VSF mechanics assemble at Paul Lange

35 specialist dealers with VSF workshop assemble at Paul Lange & Co. in Stuttgart. Topic: development of the “All-ride” workshop concept.

Uwe Wöll welcomes the specialist trade at Paul Lange

All in all 40 workshop employees from 35 VSF “All ride” companies accepted the invitation to this year’s workshop conference in Stuttgart. The conference started with a visit to Zedler-Institut where expert’s reports for bicycles have been prepared for more than 20 years. The entire institute and the testing techniques were presented to the dealers. The final dinner with all dealers was used for an intensive exchange of knowledge and experience.

The following day, the actual workshop conference started at Paul Lange's training and workshop facilities. Managing Director Bernhard Lange affirmed in his welcome address the valuable further cooperation of the two “All-Ride” and Paul Lange workshop concepts. There are commonalities in the fields of workshop planning and equipment resulting in synergies for VSF companies.

Points for discussion were the Shimano workshop equipment, bike wash facilities for the trade, flat-rate offers and online appointments as well as changes to the "All-Ride" audit form. In addition, Ingo Witte presented an update of the VSF workstation.

Better performance of workshops

Ingo Witte, head of the VSF „All-Ride“ quality seal, explains the significance of the conference: “The workshop conference is a get-together of dealers who have understood that the workshop makes a significant contribution to the overall turnover of their company. As an ‘All-Ride’ certified workshop, they work according to principles that render exactly that possible.”
