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.

Interview with Dirk Zedler

“Again and again retailers repair bicycles by using minitools in plain view of their customers.

This is something that I strongly advise against, because in doing so retailers disqualify themselves and their workshop. This is a signal to the customer that he is able to do basically everything by himself by using a simple tool. But especially on high-value bicycles, possibly with frames and parts made of carbon, you should preferably work with torque wrenches only. For one thing the customer has no sense of the correct torque compared to a skilled mechanic and needs an example. For another thing the retailer can prove his competence by using good tools.”
