    Custom Bike Frames????

    Hey y'all
    this is a quick link to a survey I made about riding preferences, and interest in Custom Frames.

    I am trying to find out what a custom frame would be worth to each of you, and what type people enjoy.

    thanks for your input, could benefit in the future

    take about 2 mins!

    I just posted some info about me in the Introductions under "waiting for riding weather" just to get to know me better.
    Thanks for letting me be a part of the forum!

    Hey pokie and racerx--why is it lame?

    Interesting. But really I don't know if you need a survey to find out peoples views on custom bikes

    Ok, I agree with KleinMp99. So 2 for you're lame and 1 not sure.

    Ok For the "Lame" comments that have come up, heres the story. just to let you know, I am an avid rider (Mountain-15yrs, Observed Trials-8 years, and Road-2 years). I am working on a school project for my last semester in a business management program (bus. plan), and I am lucky enough to get to work on something I love!! (I know some of the questions are fairly simple minded for us avid riders, but with that in mind, The market research will go into a business plan on the viability of producing custom bikes at more affordable prices. Thanks Y'all

    Fly,

    My only concerns were:
    Is this spam? Am I going
    to get all sorts of e-mail offers for Great deals
    on Bikes?
    If its market research there is a place for that,
    the other thing I would point out it would be
    a bit more appropriate to tell what you're doing
    and why before they link to the survey

    wow...it only took me 75 seconds. Does that mean I'm smart? you do need more choices for your answers though.

    I think the votes are for Pokey being lame, not your survey.

    Hey Lotek,
    Thanks for the concern. No Spam, and no passing emails anywhere. In fact, you don't even have to put your email in to finish the survey.

    Why are people saying it is "lame", it seemed perfectly fine to me. Also you don't have to put in your email address. Plus, who wouldn't want a custom frame.

    Could you post a summary of this survey when you are finished, and maybe a few words on how the BP worked out for you.

    regards

    Fly, I did it but don't think my response (as the owner of a custom built bike built in UK) will help your survey much.
