Cycling Survey - Give your opinions

Hi,

I am a student from the University in Canterbury in New Zealand. I have made up this survey so I can learn about the behaviour and personalities of all kinds of riders (mountain, road, BMX, etc). The information I gather will be used to write a promotional plan for a university assignment. Participants will remain anonymous, and all the information collected will be keep confidential and used for this university project only.

Your participation would be greatly appreciated. The survey has just over 10 easy questions and it will probably only take you 1-2 minutes.

Here is a link to the survey:


http://questionpro.com/akira/TakeSurvey?id=524534



If anyone has any questions please email me.

nja47@student.canterbury.ac.nz

Thank you again,

Nick

This is a fashion survey....

How important is each factor to you when choosing what cycling clothing to buy?

Someone asking a favor of both the forum and it's members is behaving rudely when he spams the same message several times across the forum.

Yo, Mr. OCP fashion advisor - should we lose this? I'm afraid to touch the link.

It's fine, just a short anonymous survey. I did it.

I think there is intent here beyond a cycling buddy doing some sort of paper or whatever. It starts innocent, but then the focus is all on buying cycling clothes on line....smells of a company doing this.

Link safe Rad...maybe it should go....you check it out....you got the blue star buddy!

Yeah, I checked it out - it appears harmless. Though it does seem to be a bit too professional for a university project.

Posing as a collegian "doing a school project" is one of the oldest tricks in the book - especially for younger professionals.

Yup...that's my call on it.

Now, as long as we are talking fashion, cycling and ordering on line....

Just ordered a nice pair of Quickstep bibs for 45 bucks....pro bike kit....sweet.
My LBS has a Quickstep jersey on the sale rack for 45 too.

I haven't bought any new clothing for riding all season....(Oh, except for the kit in Paris, but I mean come on, man can not live on one new Paris kit alone.)

This sums up the survey:

If you are developing a line of cycle clothing do the following!

Don't charge $50 + for jerseys. For God's sake they are made from polyester and that crap does not cost that much. In other words a cycling jersey should cost no more than $20 and maybe $25 with nice graphics.

Shorts and tights................bottom line, I am a cheap a$$! I won't pay $50 + for tights and shorts! Shorts should cost no more than $15 point blank! Tights with chamois no more than $25 point blank!

If you charge too much, I don't buy or wear your crap simply put!

If you can do this I will be a customer! If not............get off this BB and subjecting me to this crap!

It's an online survey site. Anyone can sign up and make their own survey. That's why it looks professional. You just pick the questions and answers you want, and the script builds the survey.

And it's short. I have never known a marketing guy to be brief.

I have seen a couple of posts like this one. E-mail me a copy of the quiz and I'll snail mail it back to your local Bobbies where you can pick it up.
