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.

Measurement and test engineering meets vision: Test engineer Dirk Zedler

The testing and measurement of road racing and other bicycles on test stands to obtain precise data about their properties have long been a matter of course – not least, because TOUR as worldwide biggest specialist magazine was the first to begin with.

On the first own test stands that were taken into service in 1995 Dirk Zedler had already left his signature. And this has not changed to date. No matter whether the further development of existing tests or the ideas for new machines including their construction – it is under the direction of the engineer and bicycle expert that TOUR has assured their number one position in bicycle testing. For the carbon frame test he modified among others the bottom bracket test stand for still more usability in practice. Read the results from page 24 on.
