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.

Used e-bikes in the workshop check

Finally arrived in the media: electric-assisted bikes have firmly established themselves as motor of the sustainable change of mobility. The German regional channel SWR broadcasted in its programme “Marktcheck“ on 25.05.2021 a report on the alarming results in an e-bike workshop check.

Part of the filming was a random workshop check in which electric-assisted bikes were sent for service after several years of use.

To assess the condition before and especially after the dealer inspections, SWR took the electric-assisted bikes to the test workshop of Zedler-Group and asked our publicly appointed and sworn bicycle and e-bike expert Dirk Zedler for his expertise.

For all those who missed the programme on 25.05.2021, the report is also available online.
