Hey all, some friends and I have been working on 99 Spokes, a site that allows you to perform side-by-side comparisons across bikes from different manufacturers. Plus we’ve added some unique insights, like gearing ratio, to the comparisons.

I hope this doesn’t seem spammy. There’s no revenue associated with the site, it’s just a passion project and we’re excited about the utility. If you find it useful, or lacking, please let us know, we’d love to hear any feedback. Thanks!

Looks good! Great opportunity to do really well with affiliate links. It'd be cool if you could display review scores from major reviewers on the comparison page.

 

Couple points of feedback:

 

1. At random I picked a Scott Genius 7 2017 (https://99spokes.com/scott/2017/genius-750). The summary box states it's a hardtail, which it's not, but the components are correct that it has an x fusion shock. Looks like there's another couple of fields missing to, e.g. wheel size, did you scrape the data?

 

2. The comparison for gear range... I have an idea of what it means but I think this could do with clarification - maybe add a tooltip with an explanation?

 

3. Relatively minor: some product page links are in the format x.com//us rather than x.com/us

The search engines could do with a bit of work. Searched for kinesis... as this was so off i couldn't be bothered...

also the search box doesn't self empty, have to delete the entire text.

currency should be local
