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.

Between politics and bicycle wash

On Saturday cyclists conquered the city in a wave. The Ludwigsburg Radkultur-Festival turned Wilhelmstrasse closed for cars as well as Rathaushof into an information and leisure area with bicycle wash, bicycle checks, BMX-shows and coffee specialities directly from the bike.

Cycling is not only healthy, but has long since become a lifestyle. And often you arrive faster at your destination by taking the bike. This point was emphasized by Ludwigsburg’s City Councillor for Building and Construction Michael Ilk during the opening of the event. According to Ilk who is a passionate cyclist himself, bicycles were the ideal means of transport in Ludwigsburg.


Ludwigsburg’s City Councillor for Building and Construction Michael Ilk also made a tour on a tricycle originating from 1885. This vehicle called "Rudge Rotary" with spade grip as well as two small counter rotating and one big wheel is a popular classic and intended to be exhibited soon at Ludwigsburg’s first bicycle museum. The latter will be realized by the test institute for bicycle technology Zedler based in Eglosheim. It is planned to be inaugurated in 2017, just in time for the 200th birthday of the bicycle. For this purpose the test institute is looking for volunteers who want to support this project.
