Survey: Automatic Shifting Device

Hello. We are a team of students from Sidney, New York and have named ourselves the “The League of Ordinary Gentlemen.” We are working on our senior capstone project in the Project Lead the Way series of pre-engineering/technology courses under instructor Christine A. Smith. The Project Lead the Way program encourages teaching students using STEM education in middle and high schools. More information about Project Lead the Way can be found at their website, www.pltw.org. Our group is currently gathering research in the market in bicycles and electronic gear shifts. We are distributing a survey in hopes of finding accurate, justifiable data to supplement our project. A link to the survey is provided below. Thank you.

Devin Finch, Nathan Magnusnussen, Christopher Omahen, and Garrett Yacos

Do you have more capital and more engineering capacity than Shimano. Because they discovered that automatic electronic shifting is technology without a user base.

At Interbike a few years ago, I saw a shifter that shifts across the cogs and chainrings from a single shifter. It's been on the market for years now. Has anyone else seen one?

Didn't think so.

Very cool that you're doing a bike-related through STEM. I don't think young people get exposed to enough "hands-on" learning opportunities and biking is definitely a cool subject to explore. I think I might be able to help you with some data and subject matter if you are interested. I don't know about everybody else here but I'd definitely be interested in seeing how your project unfolds.

Good luck!
