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.

According to bicycle expert Dirk Zedler about 450,000 of these bicycles found new customers in the past year alone. The CCI Stuttgart region responded to this boom and publicly appointed and swore in the bicycle expert Zedler with his company Institut für Fahrradtechnik und -Sicherheit GmbH in Ludwigsburg as expert for electric bicycles

In a statement Gunther Schaefer of the CCI Stuttgart region says: "With the appointment of Dirk Zedler as expert for electric bicycles we meet the development in road traffic and the demand in experts for this field. These bicycles require a particular expertise to be able to precisely assess their operational safety and damage." The swearing in of Zedler, who has been bicycle expert for 20 years on, means a further step in direction of professionalisation of the cycle sector.

"I am happy that we could convince the CCI of the necessity of this public appointment and their examination committee from our specific knowledge", adds Zedler.
