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.

Hello,

Late in the season, but all the more diligent, the German TV-channel NDR featured bicycles in its program "Markt". Obviously initiated by the editors’ own experience, they bought low-priced bicycles at DIY-stores and the like and tested them in cooperation with our team in practice and laboratory. We were not surprised by the results. Let’s hope the viewers will draw the right conclusions from it. You may watch the program by clicking on the link further down the page.

In order to make information on different subjects regarding bicycle technology and safety even more accurate and comprehensible, we have just launched another newsletter especially for customers of our Performance testing systems.

Have a smooth final spurt towards the Eurobike and hopefully the time to ride a bike yourself from time to time,

Dirk Zedler

 


 

Newsletter Performance testing systems

For many years we have not only offered testing services in our laboratory, but have also sold our Performance testing systems to manufacturers.

As frame and fork design are developing quickly, we constructed new accessories in order to also fix bicycle frames and forks of new axle standards (thru axle, fat bike widths a.s.o.) securely on our testing systems and to avoid measuring errors.

Attention, this newsletter will be published in English language only.

Customers of our testing systems or those who would like to become customers Please subscribe here.

Cycling tour in Ludwigsburg – Donation and cup

"Strongest group" collects kilometres for bicycles for Africa

The cyclists of the Zedler institute were once again the strongest i.e. biggest group at the cycling tour "Ludwigsburger Barockrundfahrt". For every kilometre ridden, we will donate 30 cents to World Bicycle Relief.

The employees of Zedler – Institut für Fahrradtechnik und -Sicherheit GmbH do not only fight for the bicycle. They fight on the bicycle, too. For the fifth consecutive time the Zedler-troop was the biggest group participating in the Barockrundfahrt cycling tour organized by the local club RSC Komet in Ludwigsburg. Despite outdoor temperatures of only 12 degrees Celsius, they rode either 80 or 125 kilometres, together with business partners, friends and their families as well as another 300 participants.

 


 

The corporate management provided the cyclists with grilled sausages and drinks after their tour and the charity organisation World Bicycle Relief with a donation of 30 cents for every one of the all in all 2,405 kilometres ridden by the team. This means seven bikes which will render 35 socially challenged people in Africa mobile. Alternately and according to the support needed, World Bicycle Relief will sponsor an adequate number of wheels or trainings of bicycle mechanics.

 


 

The Radlerist

The bike is on the rise and even in a city with many car suppliers a bicycle culture is growing. The new, cost-free bicycle newspaper for Ludwigsburg is a mix of entertainment and constructive criticism of the opportunities to cycle.
