The multi-stage test procedure, which has proved itself in the Spring 2009 Test, was followed again in the Autumn 2009/10 Test. The stages consisted of an ergonomic test (conducted in Stuttgart), test rides with high-quality measuring technology attached to the bikes (in Tanna) and laboratory tests (to be conducted in Schweinfurt and Chemnitz).
