    Hi guys,

    I check up with CBB every day to get some ideas on how to make my commute easier. Right now I’m 40 miles away from the jobsite, but it will be much shorter soon, so opefully that means I can take hte commuter out of weekend duty.
    I love all the reviews and the pictures of everything, it’s given me good ideas for my own bikes.
    My question is what about drive shaft bikes? What’s the deal? Getting into work with grease on the khakis doesn’t always go over so well, I’ve found, and I’ve been hearing more and more about drive shafts. Are they worth it?

    What do I like about CbB…

    “What is it you like about CBB?”
    I really enjoy reading the reviews you guys put out. I have to say out of everything I think that they are pretty enjoyable. If I were to offer a suggestion to this area it might be reviewing other items that a commuter might use (lights, fenders, rain gear, etc.) Videos would be cool but I think for detailed information/pictures might be more useful.

    “What would you like to see more of?”
    More “how-to” commuting information would be cool. Maybe information about layering, how to ride the line in traffic, how to handle rain/snow/etc, more useful information for the actual bike commuter (new or veteran).
    Also some do it yourself bike maintenance instructional/tutorials would be great.

    “What would you like to see less of?”
    I don’t think that there is any content that you put out that I don’t enjoy reading. Good stuff!

    “What type of products would you like to see reviewed?”
    See comment above

    “What kind of news/information do you find useful?”
    Not sure how much I like to read about bike commuting news (it never seems to be good news and most everyone else seems to cover this area pretty well).

    “Do you like the pictures we include with our postings?”
    Yes, pictures are great.

    “Would you like to see videos to come with the reviews?”
    If the video conveyed information that could not be done by pictures or the written word, then yes. To see you ride a bike up and down your street might not be useful…

    Well great site! I enjoy the content that you guys put out and only offer the above as suggestions.

    Look forward to the future of CbB!

    What is it you like about CBB?
    The product information is good for me.

    What would you like to see more of?
    I don’t think that I’ve seen a product review that doesn’t end with “WOULD I RECOMMEND THIS? ABSOLUTELY!” Maybe you should put more reviews up here for stuff that you don’t end up liking, or that you think isn’t as worthwhile as the marketers would want us to believe.

    What would you like to see less of?
    Nothing I can think of

    What type of products would you like to see reviewed?
    I like the mix of products you review and everything is pretty helpful.

    What kind of news/information do you find useful?
    Biking law is important, as is safety information.

    Do you like the pictures we include with our postings?
    Sure.

    Would you like to see videos to come with the reviews?
    Not really. I mean, I usually sneak this surfing in at work, so I can’t really watch the videos anyway. :)

    Something I would like you to consider including with your bicycle reviews is an actual bike weight. I think the manufactures create an ‘ideal’ situation before weighing the bike, leaving some items off the frame like pedals.

    I enjoy the photos associated with your articles, please keep including them with the posts.

    What is it you like about CBB?
    I love all the gear reviews. They’re helpful to me. I am trying to drive less and ride more. At this point I’m biking more than driving, though not car-free. CBB is also a source of inspiration. I love hearing about others’ commuting and biking experiences.

    What would you like to see more of?
    Maybe a bit of technical discussion (but for a lay audience) about bikes and mechanical stuff would be helpful: frame geometry, maintenance, bike building. Overall, I’d say the mix is close to perfect.

    What would you like to see less of?
    Can’t think of anything.

    What type of products would you like to see reviewed?
    Commuting bikes, gear, basically what you are doing.

    What kind of news/information do you find useful?
    Anything related to biking and commuting.

    Do you like the pictures we include with our postings? yes

    Would you like to see videos to come with the reviews? No

    Thanks for a great blog. I read it every day.
