Hello! I am a student in Industrial Design, working with a consumer electronics company called Cobra. They are looking to expand there product line
and customer base. They work primarily in personal communications. We
feel that there may be opportunity in cycling. If anyone would respond to
the following questions about cycling I would greatly appreciate it. This company is looking
go into production with all viable ideas within the year. Your feedback could directly influence
the development of a new product for the motorcycle. We are in the initial phases of development and are trying to find direction.
What is the most important part of the spirit of cycling?
What do you expect out of your gear?
Do you feel that there is a place for electronic communication while riding?
If so. What are your main concerns and needs for communication on the bike?
Thanks for you time. I want to come back here to post threads as our product moves along. And hopefully this online community will help us make something worthwhile.

This is a pedal bike forum not a motor bike forum. However when I rode a motorbike 50 years ago, I fitted it with an intercom. It had throat mics and small earphones so I could converse with my girlfriend (now my wife).
