Bikes for local authorities

Micromobility is one of THE topics for the future of our inner cities. Bike sharing plays a key role in this. But to ensure that people really do switch to bikes, there are a few things to consider. We know what's important.

We have been making Mainzer Verkehrsgesellschaft mbH "MAINZIGARTIG MOBIL" since 2017 - with 2,700 melon yellow eFlow bikes. Designed for riders between 140 and 200 cm tall and covering a distance of 20,000 kilometers in seven years.
Pick-e-Bike in Basel has relied on the quality of our bikes since 2021. Durable corrosion protection and an all-weather setup result in a long service life with low maintenance costs. There are currently 500 bikes on the road here in Switzerland.
We have been providing a fleet of 700 bikes for ESWE Wiesbaden since 2018. With vandal-proof brakes, reinforced wheels, closed chain guard and extra steering stop to protect the frame.

Your checklist - what you need to consider

Every company has its own requirements. This makes it all the more important to precisely analyze the exact requirements and key parameters of a sharing system.

Preparation & basics
  • Which subsidies can be used?
  • What requirements need to be observed?
  • Is there already a fixed date for the start of the project?
  • Is a test run planned and how long will it last?
Infrastructure & fleet
  • Are conventional bikes, eBikes or pedelecs welcome?
  • Are cargo bikes also welcome?
  • Does the target group have special features?
  • Which rental and return devices are planned?
  • How many stations are planned?
  • Are they managed by the company itself?
  • How is the booking made, e.g. via an app?
Equipment, service & repair
  • Do you have your own service structure or does it need to be implemented first? How can damage to vehicles be repaired?
  • Does your workshop staff need training? Are special tools required for wheel repairs?
  • Are the bike number and QR code under the paint and easy to read?
  • Are standard add-on parts available from specialist dealers used that are also available in a matching color?
  • How long is the inside of the frame protected against corrosion?
  • Is the frame lock easy to operate?
  • Are all accessible screws rust-free?
  • What lighting solution is planned? Does it have a parking light at the front and rear?
  • Would you like a front basket and fastening straps on the luggage carrier?
  • Is the material UV and temperature resistant?
  • Are the brakes suitable for all-weather use?
  • Are non-slip pedals provided?
