How do you select and buy a cycle?

As part of our study project for our MBA course, we are collecting data on cycle usage and the buying pattern among participants. First part of the survey can be located at https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dG90UVZ6eGxBUzNGdG1tc2tLa2hiNmc6MQ which contains generic questions on your usage pattern and the model of the cycle you use. If you have not taken this survey, please feel free to take it together with the following survey. This part of the survey contains specific questions on how you identify and buy a cycle.
