All about bicycles, electric-assisted bikes, technology and safety in the press

The most common safety risks that we come across in our daily work around bicycle safety, technology and operating instructions are also published by us in articles in the leading German special-interest magazines TOUR (Europe's road bike magazine no. 1), BIKE (Europe's mountain bike magazine no. 1), MYBIKE and EMTB in order to make this information, which is important for the industry, available to a wider public.

For many years now, the Eurobike Show Daily, trade fair magazine of the annual Eurobike Show, has also given us the opportunity to publish our view of major developments in the cycle industry in full-page articles.

We also speak regularly in independent expert presentations about all areas of bicycle technology and the bicycle market. In addition, we are quoted by further special-interest magazines of the industry and the trade as well as increasingly by radio and television in their media reports, which shows us that we are spot on with our advice. The section "News" informs you about the latest news from our specialist areas. The reports and publications of this section are listed chronologically or according to areas 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.
