Although none of us were that surprised by the news story this week about the top 3 bike brands for sportives it did get me thinking. Although there are loads of Spesh, Trek and Giant bikes out there (I just need to look at my employers bike sheds), of the people I cycle with at weekends or on the few sportives I have done, their bikes have been Canyon, Cannondale, Plant-X and only 1 Giant.
As I am a stats fan, would everyone be interested in doing our own survey and I'll pull together the results in a couple of weeks. And to make our survey EVEN MORE comprehensive than theirs :), how about we take into account the n+1 factor and list which brand of bike you use for the below 3 types of road riding, e.g. (my entry below)
Commute = Trek
Sportive = Colnago
Race = N/A
If there is no appetite for this or if only a few respond then I'll let this slowly disappear down the forum, however if we have a big enough sample size I'll collate the results in a few weeks and publish the results.
