    More opinions please.

    First of all, thank you very much for your input thus far.

    Based on the feedback I got from this poll, I've tweaked out Logo B and I'd love more feedback on what I've done here.

    Be prepared, I plan to work on Logo C as well, based on some feedback from someone in the biz and I'll likely annoy you with more calls for feedback.

    I like #2 especially. Having the wheel be in the G gets your attention right away, and having the G be a little better than the rest of the letters makes it stand out just enough. I like this design a lot.

    I think #4 looks cleaner with the matching G's.

    I agree with Oak. I liked #4
    Do you have the same version with less spokes in the G? I'd like to see if that makes much difference.

    You know, I'm with Wasp, I think it might look better with fewer spokes. I mentioned in the other thread that I didn't like the G all that much, and now I'm tending to think that's because it looks too busy to me.

    I'd be interested to see it, anyway.

    So here's the deal. I'm sure you've all figured out that I'm a bit of a geek about bikes. Here's a bit of a confession, the number of spokes in the wheel is accurate to a true bike wheel configuration. Not only that, it's a reasonable number of spokes for a good sturdy wheel for the average rider. Yes, I thought about it that hard.

    Having said that, I recognize that visual impact is more important here than a wheel that will stay true on rough roads under moderate stress. I'm going to head back to the drawing board and play with it a bit.

    Uh, yeah.

    I love your thinking, though.

    So here are all of the logos from above redone with a 16 spoke wheel.

    I have to admit that I like these significantly better.

    So now I like no. 7 better. The cleaner G jumps out, it's a striking logo of its own.

    I agree- I think it's nice to have the graphic logo in addition to the name.

    I can't decide between 7 and 8.

    Sixteen spokes is plenty for a modern road bike front wheel anyway.

    For me it's 6. I like less is better in a logo.

    I like 7 best -- the big G could stand on its own on products when you have a huge line!

    I liked 7 best. It's very clear as to what the business is. With the spoked G as the logo i think it adds panache. You could also use the spoked G on stickers when you do a bike fitting and people will start to recognize your logo and you know how much other cyclists like to give other cyclists bikes a good look. You could also have a weekly group ride all wearing jersey's with large G on the back. Do one in the summer and I'll come down...lol
