    Bike Configurator - help with beta testing

    Hello,
    some time ago, I was looking for website, which would help me with build of my bike from both either new or old components with strong weight consideration. Site, where I will be able to pick components (or easily add) and see total weight and compare different configurations... I wasn't very satisfied with pages I've found, so I decide to have some fun and code new website to meet my wants I would be happy to create page, which is simple, easy to use and straightforward. Because, this is my first website I ever made, I'd like to ask you for some kind of beta testing. If there are some bugs, discrepancies or just grammar mistakes. Or if you will have any ideas, how to make it more suitable for you.


    Maybe it's crap at all But anyway, your feedback will be appreciated


    thank you

    Looks good, there is a misspelling on Crank set on the main page though.

    It's a very impressive undertaking. It will be a full time job to keep it current however. Perhaps a user input option would take away some of the work load. Good luck and nice work.

    The idea is great, the way it works too.
    But yes, this will take a lot of your time, with all the options that are out there, let alone all frames in all sizes.

    there is no where to list rear shocks, only with the frame,
    maybe a seperate page for them?

    First of all, thank you guys for positive responses and for misspelling
    notices - already corrected I will try to keep database up-to-date by myself,
    especially frame directories, but there is obvious problem with claimed weight
    you cannot rely on. But I have some ideas how to deal with it Of course I bit
    wager on users adds.

    PS: @djphill: standalone rear shocks are here:
    frame > full suspension frame > full frame w/o shock > rear shock
    I'll reformulate menu titles to be more clear... Seems confusing now.

    thanks and have a nice day

    Looks good, I added a frame just as a tester....

    From doing this I really think you should add some type of CAPTCHA, otherwise you will soon have spam bots dumping crazy data in the fields.

    Cool site and quite an undertaking. It might be nice to enable people to enter weights of what they come up with to kind of average the weight of a certain part. We all know that not every part will weight exactly the same as they are suppose to.

    Could you modify the page so that the entire box registers as a mouse click instead of just the word. I like this idea. I had previously thought about a site where you could enter all the parts that you had on your bike and it would compare weight savings to cost and tell you what the cheapest way to drop weight would be. The problem would be that pricing data would have to be pulled from something like Google - Shopping otherwise the price data would be horribly inaccurate.
