Grad Student - Cycling Research Help?

Hi! I am a graduate student in the ESTEEM program at the University of Notre Dame. As part of my capstone project research, I am looking to understand the cycling community, and identify where the cycling industry can improve and where there are areas to innovate. I created a survey to collect some data, and I was wondering if there were any suggestions for where/how I should distribute my survey? Thanks!

Is school in session with the pandemic going on for that area?

Improve the infrastructure & sustain it properly [improvements upkeep budget & ideal scheduling for it]

Yes, classes are currently in person with a lot of safety precautions in place (masks, social distancing desks, contact tracing, etc.). Hopefully will make it through the semester in person, but Coronavirus spreads so quickly.

And thanks for the input!

Other than Hi End Custom, The actual bike production Industry is largely coming out of Taipei, Taiwan...

US Was largely rebuilt since WW2 for suburb subdivisions serviced by private automobile & Bus sales.

One of the biggest inherent design flaw of upright bicycles is poor performance / dangerous handling when braking close to the traction limit, giving them poor braking performance compared to motorcycles and cars. This is due to a bike's high Center of Gravity against a short wheelbase.

It is a growing problem when road bike designs are getting faster but the braking problem never addressed. It greatly adds to the danger in things like racing (like in a peloton race) and even just riding in public roads. The problem can be solved with a change in bike geometry like a more inclined seat tube (which helps lower center of gravity as well as moving it a little bit backwards)

OP, since you have your answer as to where to post you may want to contact a mod and have this closed. Otherwise you'll continue to be bothered by irrelevant responses.
