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.

Advanced Road Bike Maintenance

"Advanced Road Bike Maintenance" by Dirk Zedler and Thomas Musch was published in October 2011.

The road bike is the essence of cycling. A properly adjusted, well serviced road bike is fast, lightweight and agile. It ensures the ideal transformation of muscle work into speed and, what is more, it is fancy. There is no more effective and elegant way of moving forward.

The perfect adjustment, maintenance and care of the road bike are the topics of this detailed workshop guide. Dirk Zedler, vehicle construction engineer, and Thomas Musch, chief editor of TOUR, describe the functioning and the maintenance of all components as well as the correct assembly and the ideal adjustment of the entire bicycle:

  • Frame and saddle
  • Stem and Handlebar
  • Gear system, chain, Bowden cables
  • Brakes
  • Headset
  • Hubs, spokes, rims and tyres
  • Cranks and pedals

Furthermore, it includes special topics, such as electronic gear systems and carbon handling.
