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., 2014/11/20

Stevens fills knowledge gaps in pedelec handling

"Our dealers are very informed about state-of-the-art bicycle technology. In our daily contact, however, we noticed a need of information in technical and current legislative issues relating to pedelec handling", states Marco Wolint, service manager of Stevens. Reason enough to focus particularly on these issues on the occasion of the second dealer training of Stevens.


Marco Wolint presented the service concept of Stevens Vertriebs GmbH in detail and informed about the carbon-recycling and the crash-replacement program. Moreover, he talked about the proper handling of rechargeable batteries and the inquiries of trade supervisory authorities that examine pedelecs increasingly. 

The legal issues were treated in lectures of Thomas Rohr of TÜV Rheinland and of bicycle expert Dirk Zedler whose Zedler – Institut for Fahrradtechnik und -Sicherheit GmbH has been in constant collaboration with Stevens during the past years. On this occasion, Zedler explained what the CE-marking on pedelecs means for the bicycle dealers in practise and gave descriptive practical examples.
