“Function” refers to what your Waterford must do to perform properly. At first, the answer sounds simple as in, “I want a road bike.” No longer must you limit yourself to the offerings on the sales floor.
The first place to start is to determine how the bike will be used? Racing? Club rides? Credit card touring? Trails? This is the best time to clarify how you want to use your new Waterford. Then we can develop a design that anticipates your use, component selection, and other attributes.
How will you use your bike? In a few words, please summarize how you will use your bike. Then allocate your percentage of use to different kinds of riding. This helps us understand your “big picture” vision.
