All about bicycles, pedelecs, 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.

Four price brackets – what you get for your money

For having fun on the bike, it is not decisive what your bicycle looks like, but how it is equipped. Dirk Zedler, head of the national association of bike experts, tells you how to find good offers in the respective price bracket:

500 Marks: Lowest price range for simple, solid models with three to five speed hub gears (backpedal brake)

1,000 Marks: Bikes with seven speed hub gear or up to 24 speed derailleur gear. Caution! Suspension forks and suspended seat posts hint at the manufacturer’s having cheaped out on important functional parts.

1,500 Marks: Lightweight quality frames made of aluminium or steel, suspended forks and seat posts, up to 27 gears

2,000 Marks: Full-suspension bikes, high-quality material (e.g. forged aluminium cranks), very solid rims.
