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., 2013/07/29

VSF talks about "scaremongering" in latest pedelec reports on TV

Expert Zedler defends himself


In this report the bicycle expert Dirk Zedler was also cited. "My original, highly differentiated statements on pedelecs and current events on the market were radically cut and used in a distorted way", reports Zedler. He states that only those statements had been cut into the report which met the negative basic message of the report. "My differentiations and the indication that there are enormous qualitative differences between committed suppliers of brands and low-cost producers were actually ignored and cut out. I would have expected such a behaviour from private, but not from public television", states Zedler.
