    I’m a student in the UK studying for my 'A' levels. As part of Design Technology I have to design and make a trailer for touring. As part of this I have to carryout some market research, I have been unable to get much response form my home town (if fact none). I would be very grateful if you could fill out the questionnaire below simply by listing the reinvent letter for each question. I would also be appreciative of any comment that you may have on trailers concerning there design.

    Track (width of bike) B

    Ease of attachment C

    Load space D

    Size of wheels E

    Drag generated when cycling F


    6)What would you consider to be a reasonable price for a cycle trailer or cycle side car?



    £0-£100 A

    £100-£175 B

    £175-£250 C

    £250-£325 D

    £325+ E


    7)Put these in order of importance? (highest to lowest)
