    Quick survey - Ride 9

    Hi all,

    - ADMINS: I have no idea if this is kosher or not, so delete thread if not cool...

    Meanwhile, if anyone would like to weigh in on this very simple, 1 question about Ride 9, please do so HERE:

    I voted yes although I assume that if RM moved forward with this, itíd be for new bikes.

    Perhaps offering a high quality sticker of some kind in your store for those of us who predate the change? Or just pack said sticker in the owners manual on new bikes going forward? This way owners who donít want or need the diagram can elect not to apply it.

    If you take the time to learn about the ride 9 setup you donít really need to know what number each position is.

    I voted "No". Looks way too busy and spoils the minimal aesthetic.

    If you're going to take the time to adjust the linkage then you'll have access to a phone or computer to look up the positions.

    No - very busy looking. Just put all the info on the RM website, done.

    I don't like the busy look, but voted "I don't care" because if someone thinks it sells more bikes, I won't be grumpy about it

    Looks like there's more than enough room to etch all the info into the middle of the link where the descriptions are, no need to go to the side of the link for the drawing of the actual link and corresponding numbers

    I think it's a good idea for the 50% out there that are forever tinkering (as opposed to the rest of us that just go full slack + progressive from day 1). That said, I'd do away with the description on the front face of the link and just add an arrow two both axes on the grid image. "Slacker ---->" and "Progressive ---->" or something similar.

    I voted no. Like some said, it's a little too busy. I think just the website link would be great, though.

    I would like the idea even more if instead of numbers there was some visuals as to what each setting means

    why etched? Why not just a sticker that's easily removable if you don't like it. Personally hate the idea of instructions on the bike itself, take pride in your machine and get to know her, love her, rub her, tug her.

    I answered "no" ... main problem is the flashy white on black ! Why not going with a greyish etching ... something that would be "less loud" ?

    I need to make mine a "9", figuring out this system isn't easy when I've been on a rigid bike for ages. Voted NO, am not sure if having that on the bike really makes it any easier.
