Hi everyone!

My name is Balint Vekerdy, I'm a student Industrial Design Engineering at the University of Twente in Enschede, the Netherlands. I'm working on an investigation regarding Brand Recognition at sport bicycles, so how do we recognize a specific bicycle brand and does a brand influence our choices during purchase of a new bike, for example? With this investigation, I combine my studies with my hobby.

And this is where your help comes in! For this investigation, I created a survey which can be found at the following address:
http://www.esurveyspro.com/Survey.as...9-1cbcedd0bdcc
Please help me with my investigation by filling out this survey! I asked people at the road segment as well, it would be nice if you filled it out as well, to get a bigger scope of the sport cycling segment! :)

Thank you in advance!

Balint

    Tried it but the survey doesn't work properly. Kept getting thrown back to the start screen.

    sorry gave up half way through that.

    either not too well thought out or does not work for an engineer.
    as most of those questions i would not could not answer or consider.

    I have more than one bike, for which one do you want me to answer the questions? I didn't buy any of them as whole bikes, how should I answer groupset-related questions?

    You've got an option for Brand (Image) and Brand (Location) but not, for example, Brand (Reputation), Brand (Support) or Brand (Quality).
    Individualizability?

    How can I rate the image of the design of a material? Surely that depends on how its use has been designed? Or are you talking on a molecular level?

    In Q37, do you really want it from a technological point of view, or from a style point of view?
    8. Please indicate which type of sport bike you ride mostly, also if you marked only one type of bike at the previous question. *
    If I marked only one type of bike then what?

    A lot of questions I see... :-) It is difficoult to generalize the question for image/quality etc, so in these cases a general impression will do. As for your last question, I needed that question in the survey to redirect you to the road, mountain or touring segment. :)

    Thank you for filling out the query!

    very long winded, I almost gave up a few times, a lot of it was too complex. i didn't bother with some sections as they were not relevant.

    That was just until I got bored and gave up...

    A general impression of what? In any case, if that's what you're after, that's what you should ask for.

    I wasn't asking why you asked that, I was asking what you were asking.
    If I only marked one type of bike, what am I supposed to do?

    Like I said above, I gave up before I got to the end.

    That was hard work!

    I filled in the questions regarding my bike as I thought ten years ago when I bought it. My views have changed now!

    The whole thing needs simplifying.

    For me it was fun. Next survey please...
  • Hi everybody!

    A lot of people filled out the survey, thank you very much! If anybody is interested, and I get useful results, I'll publish some results here.

    Have a nice day!
