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.

German regional channel SWR: used e-bikes in the workshop check

Even the general media have recently become aware of the fact that electric-assisted bikes have firmly established themselves as the motor of the sustainable change in mobility. But the downsides, such as spare parts shortages, long waiting times in the workshops and a lack of skilled workers, are also noticed.

SWR's consumer magazine Marktcheck deals with the alarming results in the e-bike workshop test. 

SWR editor Beate Bastian has been searching for causes and solutions in the industry. Part of the filming was a random workshop test in which electric-assisted bikes were sent for service after several years of use.

To assess the condition before and especially after the dealer inspections, SWR television took the electric-assisted bikes to the test workshop of Zedler Group and asked the publicly appointed and sworn bicycle and e-bike expert Dirk Zedler for his expertise.

The result of the filming, which lasted several weeks, is announced by SWR under the topic “Mangelhaft und gefährlich: erschreckende Ergebnisse beim E-Bike-Werkstatt-Test“ (Deficient and dangerous: alarming results of the e-bike workshop test).
