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.

Problem product liability - A Kaestle-seminar

Brilliant lecturer: Dirk Zedler impressively proved his competence as a bike expert

Zedler, known as editor of TOUR cycling magazine, chief executive of the National Federation of Bike Experts and recently freelance employee of Kaestle, proved to be a competent lecturer. His note that he worked in a Ludwigsburg-based bike shop for several years himself, created confidence and reduced the distance between lecturer and audience. In addition to this, Zedler talked in a very relaxed and fresh way and spoke the dealers' language. A rare lucky strike.

Zedler gave a told a lot of stories from his work as a bike expert, he named the most frequent bike and component defects and gave advice on how a dealer can take precautionary measures to avoid them. For example: "Don't use a titanium inner bearing whose axle is as thin as the one of a steel inner bearing." He also gave examples of faulty designs: "An aluminium steerer is a crime."


Lecturers of Dirk Zedler's calibre were a lucky strike
