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.

Humbly into the turn of the year

The coronavirus has pretty much turned the globally connected bicycle industry upside down. We talk to Dirk Zedler and give a summary after two years of Covid. Sustainability in the bicycle production is the topic we discuss with Anja Krueger.

The German “Antritt” (Acceleration) podcast of the German podcast radio “detektor.fm” is about bicycles in all their facets and, of course, about bicycle people.

No matter whether sports equipment or fun machine, means of transport or motorhome: Our podcast covers a broad range and makes audible as diverse a range of voices from the world of cycling as possible. We look at the big issues and the small moments from various angles and have chain oil in our blood, as it should be.

These are the topics we are dealing with in the first December issue 2021:

 

Dirk Zedler about the effects of Covid in the bicycle industry

It is now almost two years that the Covid-19 issue has been occupying us in many areas of life. The pandemic has pretty much turned our everyday lives upside down, and this also applies to the globally connected bicycle industry. A peak in demand meets production and transport problems, all in all many bicycle companies and dealers are struggling with delivery problems. But there are also more long-term effects. We talk to Dirk Zedler of Institut für Fahrradtechnik und -Sicherheit in Ludwigsburg about the effects of nearly two years of the pandemic on the bicycle and the mood in the industry shortly before the turn of the year.
