 I've been adding some industrial bikes/trikes to the wiki and it seems ridiculous to have to categorize them as "Casual Bikes" when their main use is for work.  Can we get a new category for this growing field.

 

Similarly, should bikes be under "Sports and Outdoor" when many use them as an alternative to automobiles?

 

Any ideas?

Hey Robb,

Thanks for your contributions. I'll see to it that Monday we figure out and add a new category. It's always difficult to know where to put categories as they can often fit under multiple parent categories. I wonder if splitting up the bike categories is a good idea though. Might be better under the same one even if it doesn't make so much sense.

    Thanks for the quick reply Yale.   I guess I overstated things by suggesting the current setup is "ridiculous", just because it seems incongruous to me.  I appreciate the difficulty in coming up with a hierarchical framework for every product in existence.

 

In any case, an "industrial bikes" or better yet "Cargo Bikes" category would be most appreciated.  Whenever you can get to it would be great.

Hey Robb,

Here is the link to the new industrial bike category, thanks for all the hard work - I've promoted a couple of your reports to the front page already.

Be sure to let us know if you have any other issues, questions or suggestions!
