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.

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.

Zedler-Institut complements portfolio with further languages

For almost twenty years Dirk Zedler and his company in Ludwigsburg have drawn up user manuals for bicycles of any type and bicycle components. From now on Zedler extends the portfolio and complements it by further languages.

The laws relative to the protection of consumers are identical in all countries of the EU. According to the Ludwigsburg company “it is in particular the Product Liability and the Product Safety Act as well as the Machinery Directive mandatory for e-bikes that require unambiguous, comprehensive consumer information in national language.” With Croatian, Czech, Finnish, Swedish and Polish five additional languages will complement the portfolio of the user manuals. To date the manuals were and remain available in English, French, Italian, Spanish, Dutch and of course German.

Zedler offers the manuals in three categories, i.e. “Basic”, “Brand Basic” and “Individual”, also in small quantities and partly immediately ex warehouse.
