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.

Associatons update guidelines for the replacement of e-bike parts

At the end of 2015 the German bicycle associations ZIV and VSF published together with Zedler-Institut and the Federal Guild Association (BIV) joint guidelines for the replacement of e-bike parts. These are now available in a revised, current version.

The guidelines aim at German bicycle dealers and workshops and serve as recommendations for e-bikes components (models up to 25 kmh) that can be modified at their’s own discretion and other components for which they need the manufacturer’s release. The industry, the trade and the craft agree that these recommendations represent a very important contribution to product safety. This is a point which was confirmed by the absolutely positive feedback of the addressees after the first publication. Nevertheless, there were still suggestions and ideas for improvement of all interested parties. These were now taken into account and adopted in a revised verion of the guidelines.
