    Hi –

    My name is Tracey Brown and I am an MBA student at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. I am currently working on a project to learn more about MTBs and their perception by enthusiasts. My goal is to get a better sense of what bike riders love about their bikes.

    To accomplish this, I prepared a very short survey (only 5 minutes!) and I was hoping to post them your forums. I was unable to find the information for a forum moderator but wanted to reach out ahead of time and check that it would be ok to post.

    Best,

    Tracey

    A little Googling shows a real person! And the post here was not duplicated on every bike forum on the planet... I'm betting on humanity with this one. :thumbsup:

    Come on, Humanity. Don't fail me now. :p

    I figgered she was real...I just don't like all italics any more than all caps. It's annoying.

    Makes me think it's an alien thinking aloud as an aside. Good literary tool.

    My issue with these surveys is that the questions are not relevant to the real world:

    Please answer the following with 1=very true; 2 = somewhat true...etc

    I like to ride my mtb.

    This doesn't really tell you anything. You have to be willing to do some serious crunching and eschew the regression analyses that lead you down the garden path. :eek::bang:

    I love that my bike carries me safely while I do battle with the mountain. I also like that it runs silent when climbing. I like that it carries far into the hills while conserving time so that I may go farther on my outing compared to using my feet. I like the speed it can deliver when I encounter a mountain lion in the dark which happened the other night.
    Happy days and nights on a mountain bicycle
