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.

Object of exchange

Nothing lasts forever. Mountain bike handlebars don’t either. Considering the increasing number of broken handlebars, you should control or exchange this part regularly.

Planes and bikes have not much in common except for one thing: They must be as lightweight as possible in order to need as little energy as possible – aviation gasoline or muscle power respectively. A plane’s parts are therefore constructed consistently to achieve endurance strength: They offer the best possible compromise between low weight and durability. Durable parts are made for a certain period of usage and intensity. After this period they are exchanged - no matter whether they have been damaged or not.
