Haha Hayes you joker!%0D*%0D*@David: How do you mean? Is it due to both typefaces having the treatment? I did actually consider setting cycle shop in a commercial font. I just get carried away sometimes I guess LOL!

Yeah David I think that fixed it

I really like that mark! And yes you've got carried away with typography - even though it is very nice in this case it is competing with the mark, make it stand out by using complementing modern sans serif for eg. Cheers!

Just wanted to add here, maybe it's not even a suggestion, but I've noticed that logos in bicycle world in about 95%25 of the cases use ITALIC fonts... Don't know why but I felt just like mentioning this... Nice mark Gareth!

I'll chime in and agree with logoholik on the typography. Nice mark.

Don't use italics Gareth.

I dunno, I think it works well, hmmm

Sorry. Did you amend it again? Looks fine now. Maybe my eyes are italicised :/

Gareth, I love the mark but feel the type is still conflicting? Perhaps just down play the type a bit (not 2 types either) with subtle rolled edges? just my opinion.

I don't get what you mean MikeE..

Gareth, I think it's the O and S throwing it off. While the design is round with rolled edges your type is acute sharp and many angles and very horizontal. I don't know everyone has different taste so it's just my opinion.

No worries, I can see what you're saying and completely agree. I'll look at it as another learning curve, but I'm not gonna make any changes as I was actually lucky enough to get this one signed off :)
