In looking at our traffic stats, the Commuter Bikes section of our website is our most popular ( with Commuting 101 running a close second ). I’ve been unhappy for awhile with how that section works so today we are launching a completely new format called the Commuter Bikes Database.
The database is built in ‘wiki’ style which means anybody can login and add products, make changes, add pictures, add comments, etc. So while our staff has gotten the ball rolling, you can jump in and help us keep it up to date.
The goal of the database is to catalog commuter specific bikes. So while we agree that most any bike can get you from point A to point B, we are trying to keep track of those bikes that are specifically built for transportation instead of sport. So commuter or touring bikes is what we’re after.
We hope this becomes a great resource for you while looking at the bike options across the market and trying to make the best decision for your situation.
What’s even more amazing is the belief that Raleigh USA has in our site and what we’re doing. They are putting up a brand new Raleigh One Way that one of you can win. All you have to do is signup for the database and update something. Whether it’s uploading a picture, adding a comment or adding a new product to the catalog… just get involved and you’re entered to win!
Have a look and let us know what you think. We’re going to be constantly tweaking the database to make it more informative and useful.
Update: Make sure you register with your real email address so if you win the bike we can get ahold of you. We promise we won’t spam.
