All about bicycles, pedelecs, 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.

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.

E-bike knowledge

For 20 years graduate engineer Dirk Zedler has been working as a bicycle expert. In these days he was publicly appointed and sworn in as one of Germany’s first experts for electric bicycles.

Dirk Zedler - bicycle expert since 20 years

Dr. Gunther Schaefer of the CCI Stuttgart region: "With the appointment of Mr Zedler as expert for electric bicycles we meet the development in road traffic and the demand in experts for this field. These bicycles require a particular expertise to be able to precisely assess their operational safety and damage." Zedler’s institute for bicycle technology in Ludwigsburg near Stuttgart draws up user manuals for bicycles and bicycle components in more than 30 languages.

In his function as expert he assesses accidented bicycles in legal disputes. And the test stands developed by his institute, e.g. for stiffness measurements, are also to be found in the E-BIKE laboratory. For years, Dirk Zedler has been supporting the magazine with his technical advice. That is to say E-BIKE is well advised, which also applies to our readers.
