I don't know if I've mentioned this before but I'm an industrial design student at San Francisco State. My focus is Product Design and this semester I've been working on a Fixed Gear conversion for an existing internally geared hub. I'm trying to tie up some loose ends now and need data for my final report. If you could take some time out of your day to answer ten short questions about your riding and buying preferences it would help me immensely in bringing my project to completion and quite possibly bringing a product to market.
Feel free to post your answers in this thread or PM them to me.
