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., 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.”
