On-line store

We have been working on our on-line store and we have added almost 600 items and we hope to have over 1000 within the next few weeks. Please go and check it out and let me know what items you would like to see or anything we might have missed.

Re: On-line store

Your site is coming along nicely. One suggestion. Filter your product offerings by bike model. Have the user select their bike model, and only provide offerings for that bike, still based on your catagories. It speeds the search time.

I'll see if my web guy can set that up on my store, I know he has a lot of things to do, add and upgrade. I just add the products as I have the time.

spoken like a true web developer!

It seems to work ok for me. It would be much nicer to have some of the items bike specific like exhausts and such.

Were working on it but it will take some time, having accounts with over 60 companies plus 7 dealers ships for OEM parts there is a lot that I need to put on the site, it's just finding the time.

Re: On-line store

well I guess what I'm trying to say if you gonna do it just do it right I don't like the default zen cart template you need a more advanced way to list the products and several ways to look em up year model words part numbers etc... plus having a 0.5 MB pics is way too much while it can be reduced to around 2kb on the product list page well I know that most of us now have really fast connections but lets try that over 100 products 50MB to be downloaded just for pics ? you should consider your host account traffic as well.

well I'm just trying to help so please don't take my words as any sort of offense
