Bike Parts USA Concept Statement Project team: Jean Rojas, Steve West Create a list of all users that may visit your site (not from the WWW but those you’d invite). • Bicycle enthusiasts •

Secure site for ordering
Images, description of items
For the purpose of structuring your website, list the categories: • Parts •
Concept Statement: Our goal for this website is to compile the submenus into a clear interface that doesn’t confuse and overwhelm the user, especially on the home page. The home page displays “features” and “what’s new” but needs to be more prominent than the logos along the right side of the page (the large logos draw the user’s attention). The featured items should have larger images with less information with links for details and reviews. The overall appearance should be sleek in appearance with colors that convey professionalism and trust. The navigation will be categorized into (fewer) departments. The shopping cart will display purchased items and appear on every page, in a section of its own. Review dynamics will be added to each item’s description.
