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.

Travel tool kit

Apart from "flats" defects on modern road racing bikes are rare. Nevertheless, I would never set off without took kit. It would be a pity if a minor incident would mean the end of the trip. 

A 2 to 8-mm-Allen key matching the bike, a Torx-wrench, if necessary, a slot screwdriver and a riveting tool are the tools to be taken with you at least. Maybe a minitool has all you need. Complete all that with a centering key matching the wheel, tyre levers and a pump.
Just as important as tools are spare parts: replacement tube, puncture kit, chain joining links from KMC, SRAM or Wippermann, chain oil, valve extensions, the interior of a lustre terminal, an about 10 cm long section of a worn down tyre without cores, three cable ties and a rag.
