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.

Where do I buy a pedelec or an e-bike

“Buying on the internet is tempting, the goods are however often of poor quality. Mostly you obtain cheap directly imported goods which often fail only short after the purchase. Then the trouble begins. 

Compared to that buying in a specialist shop has lots of advantages. You can make a test ride which is inevitable for your personal choice regardless of our comprehensive testing by e-bike. You can check the quality of the operating instructions on the spot as well as the tips on how to handle the motor drive and the rechargeable battery. And last but not least thanks to the warranty for material defects you've got the right to obtain from your dealer goods that are free from defects two years long from the date of purchase. When buying in a specialist shop, you can communicate directly with your contact.
