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.

In times like these, with an exploding e-bike and e-MTB market the average prices of all bicycles are reaching levels that could hardly be hoped for and with the only shortcoming of delivery problems at the moment, suppliers of cheap brands also see their opportunity. Whereas the well-known special interest magazines as well as for ex. the German news magazine Focus and the German foundation for comparative product testing (Stiftung Warentest) usually take a critical look on high-value e-bikes, virtually no one examines the cheap offers of DIY stores and online shopping marketplaces.

The report that was filmed in the test workshop of Zedler-Institut focused on the question: “How much e-bike do you get for little money?”:
