    I voted before looking at the comments, but they reflected why I chose B. I did like A as a second choice.

    I immediately went to B, so that's what I chose. I do like C, but it was too "busy." A few tweaks to simplify it might work for me. I didn't see anything sexy, but I was focused on bikes!

    I like Wasp's idea, kind of a blend of B and A. Take design B and modify it so the G in Gorge is the wheel design (the way it is in A), but keep the simple, clean lettering of B. You'd need to reduce the font size of BikeFitter but I don't think that would be a problem.

    Here are some options on that line. I kept the original and played with the font on the other 3 options to try to achieve a better balance with the Wheel G.

    Nr. 2. The R lines up nicelyy with the F.

    I had no idea I had such a thing for aligned letters. Sorry :-D

    No. 2, but for the font.

    I like c best for complex reasons I'll try to explain later.

    I prefer B because it's simple. C would be my second choice, but it has too much trapped white space. A and D are too hard to read, especially D -- if I hadn't seen B and C next to it, I don't know if I would have been able to figure out that one of the words is "gorge."

    Anyway that was my reaction.

    Good luck!!

    The negative space is good in C. Resist the urge to fill it up. Think of the logotype as a painting perfectly balanced in a blank wall. Let the eye have a ill' room to move. You'll have greater legibility. D

    Another vote for B. Clean, simple and effective.

    One thing to consider is logo reproduction. I can see that C might have issues in readability if it were any smaller.

    I could potentially see a little figure silhouette (like one from C) overland on the wheel of B.
