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.

Top job

"Make sure you get a decent training on the job" - this may sound smug, but is correct. Also when it comes to bicycle-related jobs. Seven examples

There are many career changers working in the bike sector - no wonder, as the jobs in this sector are as divers as the bike types existing. A hobby-triathlete opens a bike shop, a former professional cyclist is in charge of his former bike sponsor's marketing. This may work in some cases - often, however, such career changers are overchallenged without a sound training. In order to work out a conclusive markteting concept or to repair a bike expertly, it is usually not enough to have been a fast cyclist.

It is worthwhile checking out the different opportunities before deciding for one job or another - you may come across new job concepts you would never have expected in the bike sector. One thing is for sure: Opportunities to turn your hobby into your profession are almost everywhere if you just look closely enough. We talked to seven people who combined their passion for bikes with a sound training on the job and who are now working in their dream job.
