Nice idea but can it make this....P1000479
Luckily most cyclists dont have the weight restrictions of backpackers and therefore don't need to live on oatmeal and coffee. The following answers to your questions are my personal view and do not have to reflect the views of cyclists in general....
1) I prefer a multi fuel stove where I can put any "fluid that burns" into it in any country, and during my 3 months in the US used unleaded petrol. Though I can see advantages to the slow burn of alchol.
2) I need a couple of cups of tea in the morning, plus oatmeal (if desperate) or self made bread, pancake or omelet . In the evening I need about 500ml of boiling water for paste/tea/soup or all 3 in the same pan:)
3) 1lt-1.3lt is fine.
4) Yes, every extra gram I take with me will be with me up every hill all around the world, but I'd rather it was 10% heavier if its 20% handyer...packing volume is a big issue but you can usally put other crap in the pan so that you dont notice it.
5) Patience is a virtue I dont have:), I'm hungry I want 1500 calories now!!!!
6) Yes, Yes.
7) how do you ask for rubbing/denature alcohol in Chineese, russian, french etc etc, Life is much easier if you walk into any gas staion and point at your fuel bottle:)
$70 for a whole cooking system is good news....many multi fuel systems cost the double of that:)
As you can see I'm not the ideal candidate for you product but just maybe I can give you food for thought for your next product. And like I said i dont know if I'm a "typical"cyclist...
