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.

Topic "Warranty"

Biking means wear, something may happen any time. Guarantee promises are calming. But it often is not unless the bike has become a heap of scrap, that the trouble begins.

"Guarantee often is played fast and loose with. On both sides"

Dirk Zedler, expert – A disgusting sweat-crystal-skin has covered the frame’s front, the tubes have been corroded by this aggressive coating. "This thing had been sweated on for nine years while training on a roller cycletrainer and than its owner claimed guarantee", says Dirk Zedler and points to a bizarre steel cadaver at a wall of his office. When entreprises and customers do not agree, their cases end up with him. "Guarantee often is played fast and loose with, on both sides", knows Zedler. Each case is different. That’s why he recommends keeping all documents and to take pictures of damages. "Self reliance is important. When I buy a touring bike, I should not take it to a bikepark. Or I must not be surprised if I am left with a heap of scrap afterwards."
