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.

10 Visible damage to the frame – riding on, nevertheless?

Graduate engineer Dirk Zedler, bicycle expert

“As always one has to say, unfortunately: it depends. A superficial scratch in the paintwork or a slight dent in the aluminium frame are not a problem. Bicycles have become very safe today. Nevertheless, it is worthwhile to regularly check the bike for damage when washing it, ideally just with a bucket of water, a rag and a brush. If there are real cracks or gross deformations, you should take the bike to a professional and if in doubt, leave it for the moment."
