    Green Revolution and Cycling Gear

    I'm doing a bit of research and have a couple questions. In the end I should have information from all types of cyclists. If you could take the time to answer just a couple questions, I would really appreciate it. Your reply can be as simple as a list of numbers and letters. Commentary is also welcome. If you'd like to take part in similar surveys, please let me know. Thanks everyone!!!


    1. Do you take part in competitive cycling events?
    a-Never
    b-Rarely, but yes
    c-Sometimes
    d-As much as I can

    2. When shopping for cycling gear, is the environmental sustainability of the product and company a factor in your product choice?
    a-Never
    b-Rarely, but yes
    c-Sometimes
    d-always

    3. In general, when purchasing products, is environmental sustainability a factor in your product choice?
    a-Never
    b-Rarely, but yes
    c-sometimes
    d-always

    4. Please rate these factors in order of importance to you when buying cycling gear.
    a-price
    b-company
    c-performance
    d-environmental sustainability

    I've got nothing better to do.

    c-Sometimes

    2. When shopping for cycling gear, is the environmental sustainability of the product and company a factor in your product choice?
    a-Never

    3. In general, when purchasing products, is environmental sustainability a factor in your product choice?

    4. Please rate these factors in order of importance to you when buying cycling gear.

    f-other (what?): performance to price. Something that works well but is fairly cheap. I do way too much research before buying something.

    3. In general, when purchasing products, is environmental sustainability a factor in your product choice?
    d-always
    * Often if I can know the material make up and type I can assume its life cycle and use that a factor in my buying decision. The sustainability of a product, if true, is a great feature/benefit as long as it does not compromise the performance of the product.

    4. Please rate these factors in order of importance to you when buying cycling gear:
    c-performance(e-weight, f-other)--does it fulfill my need want or desire in a beneficial way.
    a-price--if it fulfills the need want and desire, can I afford it, or is its cost vs value affordable.
    b-company--the reputation of the product's performance, look and feel is greater than the the companies brand.
    d-environmental sustainability--tipping point factor, deal breaker, deal maker.
    f-other (fashion/expression)--does the product fulfill my image of myself or the image i wish to express. This should be much higher than I 'd like to admit but it also falls in the Performance factor in that if I don't look/feel good using it, or if i feel it does not make me look/feel good using it, I won't therefore my performance will be affected.


    PM me if you want need more info on this. i do this as a full time job and can provide a pile of input...
