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.

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.
