Hello all, I'm posting this thread in hopes to do some research for a design project of mine. I'm trying to collect an accurate listing of the biggest deterents that are inherent in using a bicyle for commuting.
This is a great chance to vent about all the little things bothering you about riding your bike. And the best part is I'll listen! Leave no detail out, spare me no pains. I want to hear it all. You can stream of conscious your replys or make them organized, it doesn't matter. The main thing I need in adition to your vent is some background on you. What kind of person you are, how far you commute, what do you ride, age, gender, job and so on... All generic but important stuff for me.
So with no more futher ado, what bothers you? Is it locking your bike up, the weather, tearing your pants, etc... But please don't just answer yes. I need you all to vent every detail if you can spare the time. Give me some context and I'll be your best friend.
I'm a senior studying Industrial Design at the University of Illinois.
