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.

Tips for sound cycling

There is one extra thing bicycle expert Dirk Zedler wouldn’t want to do without: a good tyre pump, preferably a track pump with pressure gauge. Price between 30 and 50 Euro.

For longer trips he never sets off without cycling shorts. According to Zedler, a cycle enthusiast himself, it is also possible to wear them under your jeans. Cycling shorts are padded and have seams which prevent skin abrasion. During cycling you should make sure your back is straight. The 54-old advises against riding with an arched back and recommends making the back long and high instead of short and deep. This is how you achieve your ideal seating position. If your neck hurts after a long ride, a higher handlebar may help you. In general, it is advisable to have the legs straight when your heel is on the pedal with flat-soled shoes. By pedalling with the ball of your foot on the pedal your leg is then not fully straight.
