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., 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.
