Your views on...Electric Bikes (Dissertation project)

by alexalph   July 3, 2014  

Good Afternoon,

I am currently a Transport Planning MSc student at the University of Leeds. I am undertaking a dissertation looking at general attitudes towards electric bikes and how they have changed the riding habits of their owners. I would be extremely grateful if you could undertake the appropriate survey as I am keen to understand 'conventional' cyclists views on the technology.

If you DO NOT have an e-bike, please follow this link:
https://www.survey.leeds.ac.uk/ebikenonuser

if you DO have an e-bike please follow this link:
https://www.survey.leeds.ac.uk/ebikeuser

There is an option to input your email if you would be interested in the findings. Contact me at gy10al@leeds.ac.uk if you have any queries. Comments/questions on the study and questionnaire are very welcome!

Thank you all in advance.

Airzound/scoob, your more than welcome to voice your comments in the non-user questionnaire, but I'd appreciate it if you don't make pointless rude remarks to other forum members.

Done - non-ebike user.

If I could have, say, 6 bikes, would it stop me drooling over others that I don't have?

If that's not a sarcastic well done, It should be.

The guy is asking for people's views in his survey - if you go expressing views in the comments before people complete the survey you're potentially causing bias in his results.

So whatever anyone thinks just have the courtesy to STFU.

oh c'mon, it was just a joke, I even put a smiley in for the sensitive types.

for what its worth, i was quite complementary towards these bikes in your survey!

I've completed the survey, one problem is that I'm retired and therefore don't commute. However, the survey forced me to answer this question, so I put 'other'.

It was sarcastic- not obvious enough in hindsight!
