We want to make a change to make it easier to navigate.  Any
suggestions?
Would a link page be helpful?
Pictures are coming shortly
Give me some feedback to make it easier to use.

Thanks,

STeve

The online catalog seems pretty sparse, or I'm not smart enough to
figure out how to find what I'm looking for.

No, that gives folks an opportunity to leave your site %^)

I work in a shop full of webgeeks.  I'll have them take a look at the
site tomorrow and then I'll send a consolidated list of comments
directly to you.

Take Care, Zack, who just ordered something from Steve this week,
Jones

INAEB...

Underline your links? You'd be surprised how many users there are that don't
think it's a link unless it's blue with a line under it.You could use CSS to
have a "mouseover" effect where the links change colour on mouseover.

<style type="text/css">
<!--
        a {text-decoration: none}
        a:hover {color: FF0000}
        a:active {color: 0000ff}
-->
</style>

You're
already using CSS so you could just drop the "none"
here :A{text-decoration: none;}

FWIW I don't use underlines on some of my sites but
only if it's a little clearer where the links are. If it's a commercial site
then it's vital the visitor can get around easily, he said stating the
blindingly obvious :-)

The asp works well.

I'm not sure about the "buy it" on product pages it feels like there's no
going back, something a little less drastic like "add to list" or "add to
trolley" with a note than you can always take it out later. Amazon have this
down to a tee.

The info on the Colnago frames seems a little thin. I'd want a picture
before shelling out $2k plus :-)

A fast good looking site which I'd guess wasn't done by a minion one Friday
afternoon using Front Page ;-)

You could cross post your request to one of the html, asp, design groups,
they're great at pointing out things you'd never spot in a million years. As
I know ;-)

Steve:

Since you asked... sure!

1) The 'specials' list on your front page. Link the individual entries
to their descriptions in the online catalogue so the customer doesn't
have to go searching for it. A 'regular' price to compare against
would be nice, too.

2) For your 'Used Equipment' page. When you update the page, also
update the 'last updated' field. That page went through all of
December, January, and most of February reading 'Last updated 12-9-98
even though it had been updated.

Also, if you decide to clear out the used equipment, halve the prices,
and post the sales on rec.bicycles.marketplace... then also lower the
prices listed on your own web pages.

3) Answer your email. It's nice that you've found the cost benefits of
advertising on the web but it'd be even nicer if you shared those
benefits with your customers (ie don't make me phone you long distance
to ask simple questions like "are these used wheels still for sale and
what are their prices."

I don't think it's a particularly persuasive arguement but I *did*
email you just such a question and you didn't answer and I did end up
buying a wheel... from someone else.

Well, those are my suggestions. As a frequent poster used to quip,

Take what you want and leave the rest.

Regards,
Kevin Mitchell
