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., 2022/10/21

Half light, half shadow in the cycle industry

We talk to Dirk Zedler about the situation in the cycle industry, to Christiane about disc brakes in winter and to Willi about the mountain classification at the Deutschland Tour in Oberweissbach.

The German “Antritt” (Acceleration) podcast of the German podcast radio “” 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 second October issue 2022:

Dirk Zedler about the situation in the cycle industry

After lockdowns, tearing supply chains and peaks of demand, the cycle industry is also facing new challenges: Increased energy costs and inflation make the available budget in many households shrink significantly. What does all this do to the cycle industry and what issues will it have to face in the coming years? We talk to Dirk Zedler of Institut für Fahrradtechnik und -Sicherheit in Ludwigsburg about it.
