For my WW1 divisions, I have modelled the cyclist and pioneer units but they rarely get to fight anyone. The pioneers should be busy doing route clearance/maintenance, but the cyclists can add a fun element in more open battles with recce screens etc.

The jager battalions were a key component of the German cavalry divisions though, and gave them a fair bit of extra wallop, particularly when operating dismounted. iirc they usually fought as battalions
